Card Kit makes

I am in a 'card kit' group, where we are showered with card kits one month a year- we are able to request our 'wants' for our months- February.  I wanted Purple and Thinking of You or Sympathy cards.
  These cards were made from a kit Carol sent to me.

 I am out of town, so have a few supplies to use- Distress Ink cubes were used for watercoloring this card.  To get the purple, I played around with colors, and ended up mixing Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves.  The greens are Peeled Paint and Pine Needles. The image is Lovely Lattice by SU. I am unsure of the sentiment.The white lace is layered over purple mulberry paper. The punched border was in my stash. The glitter dots are CTMH (from Terry's kit). The DP is Paper Pizazz.

 More watercoloring with Distress inks- same colors as above, plus yellow-Fossilized Amber and a touch of Rusty Hinge. I also added a vague outline of Pumice Stone around the flower and leaves. The White enamel dots are echo Park. I am unsure of this image origins- if you know, please let me know too!
 Carol included sone beautiful butterfly stickers that are 3-D by Jot.  So, I used dies she included- the center die is popped up and the butterfly placed on it. The hudrangea DP is also Paper Pizazz. The glimmery purple enamel dots are CTMH.
