This week's challenge: 
is to use sponging on your creation.

Here is my take on the challenge:

My creation uses the Daisy Background from Our Daily Bread Designs which I embossed in white and then sponged with Almost Amethyst (it did not photo the right color). 

The flowers from Don't Worry  was colored with copics in monochromatic colors. The leaves are cut from the Spellbinders Grand on the Vine and sponged with amethyst. The image is framed with the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Motifs 

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
