The Color Purple

Purple's not one of my go to colors for cards, for clothes or anything for that matter but this challenge definitely called for it!
Check out the great inspiration photo below that we have for you at

Don't you just love all those purple bottles and jars! Of course I had 
to have one on my card. I used the violet and deep violet Clean Color 
Real Brush markers to watercolor the bottle from 'Bottleful Of' from 
Altenew. I colored a simple flower from 'Peony Bouquet', also 
from Altenew with Prismacolor pencil crayons. 

The sentiment took a little longer to figure out.
  I went through a few different options and then had a 'duh' moment -
 'put it on the bottle like it's a label' - yup - now it's done.
I used 'Still Smiling' from Catherine Pooler Designs for the sentiment.
