Smile to my Heart card

 I needed to make a thank you card for some very special   Family members that hosted a family event at their home.   My design layout is based on a sketch challenge over at your next stamp,  this is my very first time playing along in their challenge how fun!
For my card base layer I used a deep purple card stock from Recollections.   The next base layer I cut with Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes - rectangle die  on a light purple card stock again from Recollections.   I then ran it through my cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.   Next I found some Scraps in my purple scrap bin that I cut with 2 different sized cross-stitched flag banner dies.  The pattern one is from Deja-view global treks I think and the solid that I stamped my sentiment on is from Bazzil.  I did some no-line stamping with my HOTP layering dahlias stamp set,  stamped in different purple inks and then cut out with my SNC2.  I use micro mini purple beads for the center of the top flower.  I backed the two flowers with a diecut I cut out in black card stock called Mini Fanciful Flourish - Cheery Lynn.   I stamped you brought a smile to my heart from HOTP thank you stamp set, stamped in Memento tuxedo black ink.   I added three purple rhinestones at the bottom as accents.
For the inside I used the same stamp set to do the no-line stamping dahlia flower. The white panel is again cut with the Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes - rectangle die. The sentiment Is there no limit to your awesomeness? Is again from the HOTP thank you stamp set,  which I stamped in purple.   Then I stamped thanks a bunch in Memento Tuxedo black ink from HOTP flower frenzy stamp set.
