Joan's Challenge Leafy Background

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a pretty sleepless night last night. I don't know why. It just happens sometimes. So I was up at three a.m. this morning and am up for the rest of the day.
So in the quiet of the morning hours I created three cards already. Of course the first card I created is for the challenge at . I missed last weeks challenge because I was away at a dog show. When I got back time got away from me.
You can see this weeks challenge by clicking on this link...
The requirements for this weeks challenge are as follows...
Use a leaf design for the background (stamped, embossed, or die cut)
Add purple flowers.
Use the colors purple, white, and green.
Use a sentiment.
Use something sold at Joans Gardens
I think I have all bases covered.
Here is my card....
 For this card I got a chance to use two new Memory Box dies I purchased from Joan in the last two weeks or so. My leafy background was created using the Memory Box die Lorelai Leaf. I took four of these cut in green pearl cardstock to cover my background of white pearl card stock. I used three layers to cover my base card. The next die I cut was my new Memory Box die Breezy Wreath in purple card stock. Joan carries the full line of Memory Box dies. My flowers are in different shades of purple. The larger flower was created with a stamp set. I can't recall the company as I created this flower sometime ago. I used a heart brad for the center. I popped this flower up. My roses were created using a Sizzix die. My sentiment is from Fiskars.
A close-up of the sentiment.
Thanks for another great challenge Joan and Selma. This one really got me thinking outside the box!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Lori, this is such a sweet card. Love the soft green you used for the foliage. I must get that Lorelai Leaf die from Joan. It looks like it could be used in so many of the cards I make. Thanks for entering this great card!
