Fusion - Purple Flowers

Ohhh there is bee in my bonnet today!  Been going crazy looking at my photos on blogger.  Wondering why why why do they look so horrible?  I spend so much time photoshopping to get the whites white, and the colors just right only to find out that Google has just added a nifty little feature called "Auto Enhance" .  Did you know about this?  Well if you're a little late on the memo like me, all you need to do is go into Google Plus.  Click on home in the upper left corner.  A drop down menu will come up.  Next click on Settings  and check the box for Auto Enhance "off" if that's your preference.   Now the proof is in the pudding.  Have to wait and see how the pics look when they post - see if the contrast is turned way up like on the last ones.   So frustrating!!! 
Ok .. vented... deep breath...   A new challenge starts today at Fusion Card Challenge!  This one is right up my alley!    Look at the pretty purple flowers!!! Purple not your thing?  Well... you can work with just the sketch if you like.  Sometimes I like to think I'm clever and try to put them both together, but not this week.   I started with a white card stock base.  I stamped some leaves, and yellow flowers, and then embossed only the left side of the card.  I thought the embossing would look pretty peeking out from the flowers.  The side with the sentiment I left untouched.
 I've had a few friends going through a hard time lately - health issues - not looking good.  Thought maybe a little note from a friend might bring a smile.   I sure hope so!  
This set doesn't have a matching die so I just fussy cut them!  It was easy since the flowers are large and easy to hang on to!

Hi Jeanne,
I just love your take on the challenge. Your card is fresh and perky with a touch of vintage elegance. I'm not a fan of purple but your colors are gorgeous, and the images pop! A happy gift for your friend.

Fun to see that we've both used the same stamp, but such a different results. Love your purple with a little bit yellow, great color combination.
