These deep purple (mauve) Indian Jasmine Rose are what really inspired this card. The darker hue really caught my eye and I built this card around those particular flowers. Usually, when creating, I build my project around the biggest flower... but not this time. This time I focused on the smaller deeper colored flowers and went through my stash to find the perfect accompaniment to them.

Even though it is smaller in stature, these Mauve Indian Jasmine Roses have a much bigger impact compared to the much larger Lavendar Sweet Moon Roses. Depth and richness of color will do that when laid alongside softer and more muted colors.

I added sprinkles of natural-white Achillea Cottage Flowers for balance and they actually pop from their lack of color since it's such a stark contrast.

Then, I kept my wired stems, created spiraled accents, and tucked them in between the flowers to act as a filler.

It looks like a little garden and I couldn't be happier with my results!

I hope you really enjoyed my Blog Challenge creation!!
