Please Know That I Care

I've been playing with Ruth's digis again, this lovely iris is available from A Passion For Stamps and is a joy to colour.  I've used my usual Promarkers here, choosing my  purples which I don't often tend to use.  I wish Letraset would bring out a few more to add to the purple palette as I find it hard to get a lovely, soft blended look with so few colours.  The photo makes it look more blue than it actually is.
The papers and cardstock are a mix of Papermania and Payper Box and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set.  I love their sentiments, they always seem to say just the right thing.
The leafy border punch is Martha Stewart and the filigree panel was made with a Papermania square Moroccan style punch.
Some die cut corner features made with a Marianne die, a purple bow and some gems finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges - 
Crafty Sentiments - use a digi
Creative Card Crew - #8 - use kraft
Digital Tuesday - #156 - distressing
Skipping Stones - #124 - sketch
Sketchy Colors - #113 - colour combo, purple and brown
