Double D - May Flowers

Dear Ones~
This time over at the Double D Challenge Blog we are celebrating Friendship. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:

What beautiful flowers in these photos. 

Here is my card:
I got this new stamp and die set by Cottage Cuts called Violet Flowers, and I couldn't resist watercoloring the image for this challenge. I used the Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors and I absolutely love them. They are very intensely pigmented, and they mix beautifully.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card Stock
Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Core'dinations Super Assortment Card Stock
DCWV Garden Charm Patterned Paper
SU Quilt Top Embossing Folder
Spellbinder Lacy Circle Die
SU Nesting Circle Dies
Cottage Cuts Violets Flowers Stamp and Die Set
Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors

Stash Pearls

I would love it if you would stop on over to the Double D Blog to see what the other designers have created. And if you play along you could win this awesome die set!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week. Don't forget to swing by Double D and check us out.  Oh, and I so appreciate your lovely comments!!!

  2. AWESOME!!! Love your choice of colors and your design is fabulous!! Great job on the watercoloring ... just beautiful!!

  3. Beautiful violets, I just love this whole color palette! It's gorgeous! Fantastic design and layout! I love the look of your lacy circle too! That deep purple/burgundy is so regal, oh and great texture too!

  4. Brilliant card, lovely violets and have not seen such a beautiful card with violets before this one...stunning.xx[aussie aNNie blog]

  5. I love violets there is just something so sweet and delicate about them. Gorgeous design with lovely layers. I guess I'm into alliteration today. lol

  6. Your violets are so pretty and this is the perfect time of year for them! Lovely with the pretty papers and layering and texture in your card design. I didn't even know Cottage Cutz made stamps. Where have I been?

  7. GORGEOUS!!! Where do I begin?? With the beautiful colors, lovely violets, lacy circle, layout, pp's, embossing, the addition of the bow and pearls. That pretty much covers it, right??

  8. Stunning card, Judy! I love violets and this stamp set is amazing. The purple and green caught me eye also. Beautiful!!

  9. Beautiful card and your violets are water colored perfectly. Lovely colors with the bits of green popping through and very pretty patterned papers.

  10. Another beautiful creation by you. I love the colors of the rich violet and green. So reminds me of the Spring. You put those pattern papers together so well and I love that perfect bow.

  11. What a lovely card!
    We had a patch of violets
    at the house I grew up in.
    I miss them!
