Thinking of Amethyst

I've been thinking of doing a tweak on these cards for a while, but it was only yesterday that it struck me I should skip the brads and do it in purple. I kept the base as Kraft and punched the layer instead of the base. When punching the base you have to do that first before scoring and folding the cardstock and I just wasn't up for that last night, I wanted quick and easy! I added a second ribbon - the gorgeous Kraft taffeta - and moved the sentiment. I wanted to add just a little more Baja Breeze than what was int he ribbon, so the sentiment has been layered on two small oval punchies which have been off-set in opposite directions. This has all then been layered on a large Kraft oval and mounted on the card front with dimensionals.
