Purple Wheelbarrow - Spring Has Sprung

It's funny because when I started this card, it wasn't intened to be so purple. But, now that it's finished, I really like all of that purple!!!

The inspiration for this card came from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

Today I decided to use the pre-colored Wheelbarrow from Fred She Said. You can pick this up as a Digi to color yourself, or a set of 8 pre-colored images. Tracey does such a fabulous job of coloring her images that it really would be foolish for me to color my own. You can't beat perfection.
For the flowers, I made some faux flower soft in purple, pink and yellow. I like the dimension it added.

The Sentiment and the tag it's on was stamped and embossed using stamps from Waltzing Mouse.
The papers and pearls are from Close to my Heart.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
