Lavender and Lace...

Hi Best Blogging Buddies....

It's Tuesday, it's two weeks, and it's time again for another fab challenge from Anything Goes!!!  We had wonderful entries for our dotty challenge...... well done to the winners...... and now this time our theme is 'Lavender and Lace'.

For my card I chose a lovely LOTV image called Millie Just for You......  coloured her with copics and promarkers, then decoupaged her butterfly.  I sponged around the image while the nestie was still in place (there is a tutorial at the top of my blog that shows the sponging technique..), then I printed out some fabbie papers from Pink Petticoat in just the right lavender colour that I wanted.  The sentiment is also from Pink Petticoat.
I've also added some punched daisies with a few little gems, some glitter in her hair, flower and top......  then some lace from my stash down the side.  Finally I punched a couple of small butterflies, and a Memory Box Heart Chain border for the corner.

Hope you like this little lady... she was a joy to colour.  If you pop on over to the Anything Goes Challenge Blog, you can check if you were one of our winners from the last challenge, and also my fabbie teamies' creations for Lavender and Lace.  You will get some wonderful inspiration!

Don't forget, lots of the crafting goodies I've used are available from Lynne at The Craft Den.

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting...

PS.......  I'm still working on my PINK idea......  got you all guessing yet?????

  21. Hi Christine, gorgeous card! Love the colours, I have real problems with lilac / lavender / purple shades, just can't seem to get the colours right.

    Love the card below as well - so bright and cheerful, just what we need with all this dreaded rain.

    Thanks for the advice and nice comment on my paper bouquet - will post pics of the final version.
