I was so excited to see this digi in the lineup at Clear Dollar Stamps this month.  I love violets - or are they pansies??!  Too bad I wasn't born in February so they could be my birth month flower!

I combined the script, small flower cluster, and February digis to make my focal image.  I basically just dragged and dropped them into my Pages program on my Mac, lightened the opacity of the Script and then made them into a group and resized it all together.  I did print an extra of the flower and colored and cut that separately.  I didn't want the script to show through the actual flower, although it does a little through the buds.  Nothing else too different, except that I thought the kraft cardstock mat looked a little stark, so I took my caramel colored marker and added in some large and small speckles to tone it down.  I *almost* set my coffee cup in some leftover coffee to use as a stamp of a coffee stain.  I thought it would look vintage.  BUT I chickened out.  I would have hated to ruin it!!

Be sure to hop over to Clearly I Stamp and see the rest of the digis being released today.  There is always something for everyone!!
