Blue Violet is a super rich blue with violet or red undertones. Absolutely beautiful!! I could have paired it up with blue tones, but thought I would swing with the more purple and violet colors. I found some really fun items to go with it.

to get things going on my card, I added a panel of Kaiser Craft paper then started layering things up. I used the Tim Holtz Honeycomb Die with the Blue Violet card stock, then added some Tiny Purple Flower Sequins and Doodlebug Lilac Sprinkles.

After adding a strip of pattern paper and my message strip, I put the flower in place.

I love how I can mix in different purples and they all blend together!
