A New Fave Card

This has to be my new favorite card that I have made. It is so different then anything I have ever made and I LOVE it!. I took a copy of this digi into work today to find some paper that I liked with it. I ended up getting some Basic Grey paper. It is so different then anything I would have ever picked out before. In fact I didn't pick it up some one else did. When they got to the register they decided they didn't want it so it was put in my go back buggy. I saw the paper and had to have it.
The funny thing about the Basic Grey paper is that it looks lavender but it is not, it is a light black. I guess it is drawing out the color of the flowers. I ended up using sketch 81 from card patterns for inspiration.

More Details:

I made the flowers from Primas.

The digi is from digital 2 for tuesday.

Everything else is stash.
