Simply Grape

I think clean & simple (CAS) cards are perfect for capturing the beauty of Spring, so here's my attempt at a simple card featuring my favorite bulb flower, the grape hyacinth. I planted some when we first moved into our house 5 years ago, and they came up really beautifully this year!

The main design of this card was totally inspired by by the "Take Three" challenge at Less is More; see below for which past challenges I chose.

I was also inspired by the "Bling and Glitter/Sparkle" theme at Craft-room Challenge; the only thing on this card that doesn't sparkle is the green ribbon (from Crafty Ribbons)! The sentiment is heat-embossed in a glittery purple, and both papers are sparkly.
