Purple Twilight

Hi everyone! I wanted to share this new card with you all, 
although I used Sweet Pea Stamps  Midnight Rose by Elaine Cox 
I am calling it Purple Twilight.Because... a few weeks ago I was at 
Home Depot with my dad picking up new flooring 
for grandma's room, the new floor makes my life much easier. 
Anyway I stopped by the paint section 
and picked out some paint samples
and one of them is called Purple Twilight.
I have seen somewhere in blogland these paint samples used as
background papers and I wanted to do the same.

Originally I was going to use the whole paint sample, but
after deciding on my background paper I did not want
to cover it up. So I fussy cut my image I decided to use the 
paint sample with lacy accent die cuts. 
I love how it turned out, the sample is 
coated so the accents are a bit shiny and stand out.
What do you think?

It seems a little plain but I did not want to take away from the image or
the background paper. It's from K&Co. Abrianna paper pad from Michaels.
This another Mother's Day card as well for my Aunt.
I have a few more cards to make for mother's day so I better get to it!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
