Purple Passion

Here's another card I worked on over the weekend. The image was colored a few weeks ago. I tend to dislike purples except for the hydrangea (bluish) purples so this was a bit of a stretch for me. I think the colors (even the purples) are still in my safety zone though.
At the moment, I'm infatuated with Martha Stewart's Three Hydrangea punch and seem to use it on almost every card. Oh yes, I do have oodles and oodles of Prima Flowers, but for some reason or another, I just don't seem to grab them.

Hope you enjoy it!
Here are the details for the card:
