Flourishes Sweet Peas

Hello blog friends! I have had a very busy and productive crafty week with good things happening behind the scenes. I have had this project finished for days and forgot to post it in time for the challenge. I made it for the Flourishes blog 'A Touch of Gold' Challenge but when things started hopping behind the scenes, I had to switch gears. Luckily, it also works for the WT473 - Spring means new beginnings (4/3/14) challenge. My new old toy in this challenge is the use of this eyelet border die. You don't want to know how long it has been hidden in my stash wasting away! Let's just not go there! I was happy to find this forgotten jewel and use it on my project.
I think these may be my most favorite stamp sets by Flourishes. Sweet peas come in such a wide array of colors and today's image depicts the deep velvety tones of the dark purple sweet peas! Many people like the pastel tones of a sweet pea in spring but I can't resist the deep reds and purples. The velvety regal Purples just scream Easter!
