Flourishes with Marianne dies

This beautiful Hello Hyacinth stamp set is from Flourishes.  The challenge on their blog this week is to use purple and blue on your creation.   I colored these gorgeous flowers with copic markers and used a new Marianne die set for the doily and background.  The corners are Anja's corners from Marianne also.  I just used some distressed ink, pearls and a bow to finish this card.  Check out the Marianne blog and see all the gorgeous creations on there also. You can purchase these gorgeous dies from Sweet stamps.   Just a hint, most Marianne dies due better if you emboss them first and then cut. I also have 2 of these corners so I can do both top and bottom at the same time and stop half way and back them out.  If you don't do that it will flatten what you already have embossed.
