Purple Hibiscus

Playing with 3 Step Hibiscus from Kitchen Sink Stamps today and I fell in love with this color combination! Step 1 - Lavender Moon, Step 2 - Plum Pudding (both Papertrey Ink), Step 3 - Vintage Violet, Step 4 - Elegant Eggplant (both SU!). For the stamen I stamped the image with Lemon Tart, then Summer Sunrise (PTI), and More Mustard. I cut it out, adhered the smaller end and popped up the top with a dimensional. The leaves are done with Spring Moss (PTI), and Mellow Moss (stamped off for Step 2).

I paired up this pretty image with some gorgeous Webster's Pages (which I scalloped across the bottom) and Cosmo Cricket paper and Plum Pudding grosgrain ribbon. I added one beautiful deep purple Dew Drop from the Paris collection to the end of the ribbon and some paper piercing above to finish it off.
