Shades of purple

This was an experimental card....just having fun. I was trying to design a project with Cheery Lynn Dies in purple for the Cheery Lynn Designs  Monday Challenge Shades of Purple. I came up with a somewhat stain glass design or window design. Used an image of Crocus colored with purples behind the "Window".Added some butterflies and tried stamping a sentiment on one of the butterflies. Tip: After cutting the butterfly die, place some one sided tape underneath the space stamped so it will stay intact. You will not want the punched area to fall out or you will lose your words.
For  the large open butterfly of DP I cut the shape of the butterfly out of metallic CS and made wings.
The colors on this look more red in the photo than IRL shade of purple.

Stamps: Flourishes Crocus from "A Year in Flowers" and sentiment from "Taglines"
Copics for coloring
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Grape Jelly
Papers: Solid CS from Bazzill, Pattern from K&CO, DCWV Metallic Stack
Purple Gems for accents
Dies: Cheery Lynn Cathedral Lace Frame, Butterflies Small and Butterflies Small 2

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
