It's time for another challenge at
Here's the challenge for this month.
When I was a little girl, I remember picking wild violets from the yard
and proudly taking a bouquet to my Mom for Mother's Day.
This die reminds me of those little violets.
After die cutting the violets, I sponged ink on them and spritzed with water,
then moved the ink with a brush to get the shading I wanted.
While the violets were drying, I smooshed the piece I'd cut from
into some watered down Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.
When it was all dry, I fit the violets back into the out cut
and finished the card.

She and the Design Team have some awesome inspiration for you.
On a sad note, we are saying a fond farewell to Harriet, who has
added so much to our Design Team. We are sorry to say goodbye, Harriet,
and hope you'll come back to visit often.
