ODBDSLC194 Anniversary Challenge #2- Amethyst, Lavender or Purple

Since this month is Our Daily Bread Designs 6th Anniversary, the team will celebrating this Anniversary with a sequence of challenges related to the 6th Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs.
This week will be the 2nd in our series of 4 Anniversary Challenges.
Since Amethyst is the gemstone for a 6th Anniversary, let's see LOTS of purple or lavender on your card!!

I'm always overjoyed to pull out the purple, it's one of my favorite colors!  I heat embossed the wonderful ODBD zinnias and water colored them with re-inkers. I layered the flowers for more dimension and added leaves from the new Zinnia & Leaves dies. I added chicken wire embossing folder, corregated paper and lace for a country feel.

ODBD Stamps Used:  Zinnia, Scripture Collection 10
Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, embossing folder, foam tape, heat embossing, re-inkers

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
