Final Viva la Verve Card for February!

Hello!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  We have had gorgeous weather, so we have spent some time playing : )  I started this card last night, but had to run to Joann's today after church to pick up some purple ribbon!  I finally got it done and this is what I came up with:

I chose this inspiration photo.  I just love this linen napkin with the white flower, and I think it looks gorgeous with this plum colored plate!  Here is my card:
I decided to heat emboss this gorgeous bloom from the Verve set Abundant Blessings.  I stamped each layer of the flower with VersaMark and embossed with white ep onto some Kraft cs.  I cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and added some stitching.  I also added some embossing to the white panel using my Scor-Pal.  The stem comes from the PTI set Floral Fusion, and the sentiment from the PTI set Fall Elegance.  I hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by!
