Too Much Purple?

I think I may have gotten a little out of control with the purple on this card. It started with the background, a piece of card stock I had been playing around with testing out my homemade glimmer mist. I embossed it with my Cuttlebug D'vine swirls folder. Then I had some extra top notes cut from the winter album I had just made earlier this week. I embossed those too, this time with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I stamped the smaller one on the reverse side and then clear embossed it (I just love the way it makes it look "slick")

I layered it on the other one with some pop dots for more dimension. The purple swirly ribbon was from my stash and I thought it complemented the swirl embossed background.

The ribbon bow is made up of a few fibers and ribbons gathered together. I made the hat pin/stick pin (whatever you call 'em) a while ago and have been dying to use one somewhere on a project :)

Kristina, I love the mono colors and I love purple. I do not think is too much. The ribbon bow adds IMO, an elegant touch. Great card! How do you make the glimmer mist at home?

Not too much purple at all! It's just monochromatic:) Love the ribbon embellie, makes it pretty and fun!
