The colour purple!

Having wasted so much time effort and card on this project......with stamping and decoupage on Friday. I did what many of you advised I do go to bed and look at it with fresh eye's yesterday morning. Now I will admit it falls a long way short of my usual cards ( I personally do not like it.) I really can't get my head around Purple for a wedding to me that's a funeral colour.  And try as I might whatever I did still looked wrong.
In case anyone want's to copy this the ingredients are;
One piece of Hunkydory Purple swirls A4 card cut in half or trimmed to fit what ever card you have.
6 inch square of Dark green card.
6 inch x 12 inch Purple card-stock
A Small piece of piece of white glittered vellum.
A small piece of white card I used an off the moment I have plenty of those!
Clarity Stamp RSVP
Silver embossing powder.
Versa mark inkpad
Heat gun
Talcum powder and a small fine brush.
Sharp scissors.
You will also need a Cricut and the Wedding cartridge.

Stick Hunkydory card to card-stock. Pick Design of your choice and cut it in the Cricut machine. I cut the Bouquet blackout and stem in dark green at 5 inches.  Cut out with the Cricut again the Purple flower's that form the top of the Bouquet again in 5 inches. The ribbon bit  of the card that comes in the same colour as the flowers I discarded as the stem and ribbon are cut from the glittered vellum, the vellum was cut freehand after sticking the vellum onto the green card with vellum glue dots. I stuck the purple flowers onto the stem with foam pads,  then stuck the whole assembled piece onto the Hunkydory card.  Taking a small off cut of white card I brushed it with talc this prevents any stickiness that would attract specks of stray embossing powder. Stamped the Clarity RSVP in versamark and then added silver embossing powder heat embossed the card from underneath. trimmed to fit and tucked in under the Flower's added a few purple gems here and there to accent the flowers. ........Hope someone out there likes it I must say a thank you to my good crafty friend Tammy Knight who is an amazing font of wisdom ....Her suggestion was to take a Versamark pen and outline the cuts were the petal's are which I have done....oh well I hope MIL Likes it ! It's for her to send to her Grand-daughter.
