The key to my heart

My card for this week's OWH sketch was made from scraps on my desk and became a feminine card very quickly.  It started with a chipboard key that I embossed in white, which I paired with a piece of watercolor paper that I stenciled with Distress Inks:
The circles are made from vellum and embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.  I had a tough time lining up those circles!  I adhered a bit of ATG tape to a 5.5 inch of strip of paper, stuck down the circles, then adhered the entire strip to the back of my distress paper.
I embossed the purple card as well because I thought it needed some interest too.  Lots of embossing here - dry and wet - and I went into the purple zone too - always a tough color for me.
I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Emboss it .
Have a great MLK day!
