Bloom with Happiness

I cannot stop embossing!  Sometimes it seems like it's the embossing folder that drives what I am going to create instead of having an idea and then getting out the embossing folder.  I really struggle with a vision of my layout, or the colors, or the embellishments, so I really like using sketches, though I usually take them literally and don't stray far from the exact layout.

I saw the sketch challenge from The Crooked Stamper and it seemed like it would be pretty simple, right? Wrong!  Not for me.  It took me hours to make what turned out to be a super simple card.  I tried butterflies, I tried stars, I tried circles and ovals...didn't like any of them.  Then I remembered I had this little flower die that also embosses....

I layered white, a darker purple, then the embossed white paper on purple cardstock.
