This weekend is VSN on SCS. This card was made for a challenge asking for purple to be used on a card --- now that's a real challenge for me as I'm not a big purple fan. I used the stamp set by Close to my Heart called Spring Equinox (hence the sentiment "No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow"). I used Elegant eggplant for my purple along with So Saffron and Handsome hunter. The stem was inked in hunter then I used an aquapainter to smear some of the ink to give it a watercolored effect. A little ribbon and I was done in plenty of time.
