To create the subtle background, I color washed Mint Macaron and Wisteria Wonder ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock using a large paint brush and dried it with my heat tool.
The colors I used for this weeks challenge are: Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Mint Macaron and Garden Green. Here's this weeks challenge:

Purple is one of my favorite colors (in case you didn't know by now). After my mother passed away (14 years ago), I made a card for a challenge at Stampin' UP! back in the day for her in honor of Mother's Day. Low and behold, Stampin' UP! called to tell me that I won the challenge! It really ment a lot to me since I was still grieving. So ever since then, I have loved the color purple as it makes me think of my mom and the card I made her. :)
