Purple Bouquet

I created this card for the sketch at the Feeling Sketchy Challenge for this week. It was a challenge for me alright! I couldn't figure out how to make the half moon cut at the bottom. I of course, went the long way about it. I should have just cut a circle in half and be done, but nooooo, not me. I went to the kitchen and got a bowl to trace the edge of it onto the card base. Anyway, I still enjoyed creating this card and am happy with the results.
**Paper Patterns - All are from the DCWV "Midnight Berry" stack and it has some of the prettiest cardstock of all the stacks I it! The pattern I used has a lot of pretty gold foil accents in it.
**Frame - The "Midnight Berry" stack has a couple of pages at the end that have an assortment of frames you can cut out to stamp your sentiments on. These frames match all the cardstock patterns in the stack.
**Stamp - I have had for a while, sorry no name. I used my "Stamp Perfect" positioning tool to make sure I stamped it exactly where I wanted it. My dear sister-in-law gifted this item to me, I sure enjoy using this tool. 
**Flower Bunches - From a pack from EK Success "Jolee's Boutique".
**Frame Corners - Used a Fiskar 3-in-one corner punch.
**Embossing - I embossed the half moon cut with a Cuttlebug "Chicken Wire" folder.
