Flower of the Month - February Violet Bouquet (Two Ways)

Hello and hope you are having a great day.  I am continuing with my flower-of-the-month theme.  I have this lovely bouquet stamp that contains violets.  I decided to color it in two different colors, and then also change the orientation of them when I made the cards.

The first card uses pinky-purple toned violets and muted tones.  I kept the card very clean with white embossing.

The second card is a more traditional blue-violet with brighter tones.  I paired this with a custom marker colored sentiment banner and pretty patterned paper.

Supplies:  I Brake for Stamps Woodland Bouquet, Memento black ink. Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, white gel pen, Recollections Coastal Village 6x6 Paper pad, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, Gina K Designs Assorted Greetings Stamp set, Versafine Black ink

I would love to enter this in Word Art Wednesday’s Anything Goes 322-323 challenge!

Thank you so much for your kind visit and comments!
