And here's what I came up with:
I knew I had to make something with layers of purple scallops, to mimic the ruffled petals of the cabbage. I bent the edges of each scallop up to make it as "ruffly" as possible. It's hard to see in the pic, but the lighter purple layers were embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. And of course it all had to be backed with this gorgeous olive green cardstock that I've been hoarding.
We're heading down to Shenzhen/Hong Kong for the weekend. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather - it's been pretty cold here the past couple of days! Hopefully it'll be a nice few days of good food, shopping, and visiting with friends. Okay, off to finish packing!
