African Violets

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsors for the week are digistamps 4 joy  

and just ME Digital Stamps

I was given this beautiful African Violet image from Digi Stamps 4 Joy to work with:
When I first saw it, I was thinking of coloring it twice and piecing the images together to create some dimension.  And then, I thought how pretty it would look if it were paper pieced with patterned paper.  And it is beautiful!!  The bit of tulle was recycled from a piece that had ripped off one of my daughters' dresses a couple years ago and two of the lacy border pieces were in my bits and pieces stash; I just die cut two more to balance it out.  It will probably be a birthday card, but I didn't have room on the front for a sentiment, so it can be for any occasion, really.
