It's Daring Card Makers time again! As it is the first dare of the month the challenge relates to this month's birthston the Amethyst.

Background Paper is from the Funky Hand CD - Papercraft Factory 'Dreams Come True' Stamped with Elusive Images background stamp from the India Theme plate using Stazon Vibrant Violet.
Feature Stamp is also from EI theme plate and is stamped with glue pad and glittered. Sentiment from same theme plate Flourish is by Dimension Fourth also glue stamped and glittered. Flower is by Wild Orchid Crafts tinted with two different Copic colours (thanks Joanne!)

This dare is being sponsored by the lovely people at Craft Obsessions with a fabulous Martha Stewart punch up for grabs. I have had excellent service from Craft Obsessions, they really go the extra mile for their customers.
