Mind Your Manners

This card serves several purposes. One of the reasons is to honor Shirley aka wannabcre8tive as Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers. Some of you know her as Shirt.  Shirley and I are on a DT over at CCEE Stampers and I happen to know she has a wonderful gallery of cards to case.

I'm also entering this card into the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen's Monthly Theme challenge which is Mind Your Manners..all things please, thank you, I'm sorry. What a splendid theme.

I made the flower using a Spellbinders Blossom Two die cut. I used some fairly thin designer paper and it kind of looks like tissue, although thicker.

I'm also entering my card into the trulymadly Crafty Challenges-Anything Goes
Another wonderful challenge I'm entering is Divas by Design-Anything Goes

Pretty in purple! The flower turned out gorgeous, and looks good against the darker shades of purple.
