ODBDSLC194 - Amethyst, Lavender or Purple

It's Tuesday again and it's time for Our Daily Bread Design's Anniversary Challenge #2. In case you missed out last week - Our Daily Bread Designs' are turning 6 this month and we are celebrating by having Anniversary themed challenges throughout the month of March.

Since amethyst is the gemstone for the 6th anniversary the challenge this week is to use lots of amethyst (the colour), purple or lavender on your project!

I enjoyed stamping and playing around with some of the new sets from the March release to make my card:

I've used the Bee Happy stamp set from the March release and the honeycomb mini background (also from the March release). The dies I've used are Elegant Ovals, Zinnia and Leaves and Beautiful Borders. The gorgeous paper is from the Blooming Garden Collection.

For more inspiration for this challenge please visit my talented design team sisters:
