Lovely Lavender

This card is another triple header. Yeehaw! It's a birthday card, it's for PCP sketch challenge 6, and it's for Holiday Challenge Extravaganza #10--to alter an embellishment.

My base card is Very Vanilla and various elements using DP from Basic Grey's Lily Kate 6 x 6 pad follow the sketch, with a sheer lilac colored ribbon tied around in a bow. The focal image is stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine Smokey Gray ink and an Annie LaPoint stamp from My Favorite Things. I colored the image with Stampin' Markers in Lovely Lilac and Certainly Celery, and outlined it with Sahara Sand for some definition. It was then matted with more DP and mounted with 3M foam squares. The large white Prima flower was stamped with SU!'s Posy backgrounder with Lovely Lilac ink, and all three Primas were attached with a green rhinestone brad. Two lilac rhinestone brads anchor the lower corners.

Thanks for checking in!
