Hibiscus Purple

I made this for a distant friends birthday.  I did some experimenting with an inlaid die panel.  Used up several different bits/snippets of purple to cut and inlay, which made a more interesting flower I think.

Complementary colours: green shows purple at it's best with contrast

Wow Carol, what a stunning card! I love how you inlaid the shades of purple/mauve and grees so beautifully against the black - wonderful! The sentiment finishes it off perfectly.
