Less is More week 49 Colour

Evening all,  Chrissie and Mandi over at LIM towers have set us a colour challenge this week and it's 
                         Predominantly Purple
Now I don't possess much in the way of purple card or even ink! Most of my inks are verging on lilac so I hope my card will pass muster.

My topper is a window die that I cut in half and cut the shaped piece off the waste and added it back to create a smaller window. I inked it with a Marvy ink block which gave it a slightly distressed look. Using the square waste pieces of card I stamped the water scene,(Canadian stamp) attached them to the base card and used foam squares to put the frame on top. The shell embellishments are shrink plastic stamped with a freebie from craft stamper and glossy accents for highlights.
The sentiment is printed with my xyron and punched out using half of the SU label punch with ribbon inked to match.
Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment so I can visit you:)

Love your card, Val. Such a great idea...looking out the window onto that lovely scene. A really lovely CAS card:)

Your water scene reminds me of Maple Bay, Vancouver Island, where my brother lives:)
