sage and eggplant

Two colours I don't use very often... Sage Shadow and Elegant Eggplant.  I thought I'd combine them in this card.  My starting point was actually a piece of the new Nouveau Chic patterned paper.  Sage Shadow is one of the colours featured heavily in those papers, which made me decide to use it along with the patterned paper...  and I think it looks great with the deep purple shade. 

Oh... and there's the medallion stamp again!  I've used a small amount of Old Olive ink in the centre of the medallion to give it a slight "two tone" effect.
