TGF Royal Battle Week #2

*This is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see my La-land Weekly Wednesday Challenge #33.*

Sorry for being such a slacker with my posts this week...but I'm getting back on track! The second challenge was to make a easel card and I volunteered to make this week's card for my team. We're a DT team, so you're not allowed to vote for us...we're just playing for fun. :)

While cleaning out my craft room, I found this fun flower that I saved from one of my Bath and Body Works baskets from years ago. I knew instantly I wanted to pair it up with Charlotte. I don't use purple very often, but love the boldness of my card.

Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is Amuse
Twine, Copic, Pearls, Basic Grey Buttons, and Friskars Border Punch

The new challenge for week 3 is up now...so good luck to the remaining teams!
