Always Hopeful

Hello!  Back with another card for a challenge over at 365 Cards. For Challenge 179, we are working with a the sketch below:
The focal images are stamped in Mowed Lawn Distress Ink onto Specialty Paper and layered over black paper and a paper doily.  The bottom border is a combination of a paper border from Martha Stewart and vintage seam binding.  The flower, leaves and pearls are from my stash.  The word stickers are ChitChat Stickers by Idea-olgy.  I hope everyone is doing well.  Thinking of those along our Gulf Coast who are being hammered by Hurricane Isaac. Best wishes, Yvonne

Hello Yvonne
Gosh I love the elegant and sensual Purple Bg, it sets up your card beautifully, as this is what your eye focuses on first, then the purity of your White creates a stunning effect. There is excitement and a little daring, I just love the uniqueness and your images are a perfect contrast in the refreshing Green.
Great work.
