Purple Flowers with White - Three Squares

Three squares with flowers.  I like the contrast, balance, and flow with the patterned paper, the flowers at different angles, the shimmer of the little pearls, the mix of squares and curves, and the off-center layout.   My card was inspired by this (very different) card on Susan Raihala's Simplicity blog. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink royal velvet and stamper's select white, and the leaves print from royal velvet pattern pack.  Note: the gray is background, not part of the card. 
  • The die for the sentiment is Papertrey Ink double-ended banner (small).  
  • The flowers are punched with an EK Success retro flower punch.  I punched a 1/8" hole in the flower centers, then added a bit of Ranger liquid pearls.
