Spring Violets

This is a card I made for a friend who has a very sentimental attachment to violets. So when I saw the Sheena Douglass stamp set I knew I wanted to get it to make a card for her. I kept the layers to a minimum as I was posting it to the USA. I used two of my new tonic dies to make the lattic work in the precut base card and then used a spellbinder resplendent rectangle to cut the coloured violets out. I used wow black granite embossing powder, which gives a little sparkle, but the camera hasn't quite picked that up.
I'd like to enter the card into these challenges:-
Simon Says - spring flowers
Stamping Sensations - anything goes
Papertake weekly - anything goes

What a gorgeous card Lynn! Love your coloring and die cuts used. I love violets too, they somehow remind me of my childhood and I'm so happy to have them growing in our backyard in the grass.
