ABC L is for …….

Lavender and Lace!

Here I am late again, arggghhhh. I had a brain melt moment and completely forgot to blog my card for the ABC DT with our theme this time.

ABC L Main

We are sponsored by The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and their prize is this stamp and also by LOTV with a fabulous £10 gift voucher

This was an easy one for me as all forms of Lavender are my absolute favourite colour. For my card I used some old sizzix papers that have been sitting in my stash for a very long time, but the delicate little dragonfly design was just right for what I wanted to do.

ABC L Image

The lace centre strip is a piece of toning card punched out with a MS punch, and overlayed on that are a strip of lace and a purple ribbon.

The plain mauve paper has been embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. My image is from Sassy Cheryl and I have coloured her with promarkers. The diecuts are from Memory Box and the flower I made myself, both from mauve mirri card.

I am entering this into the following challenges:-

All That Scraps – Anything Goes

Crafts and Me – #75 Circles (my diecuts are circular)

DYSU – #63 Favourite Colour

I Love Promarkers – #108 Anything Goes

Ladybug Crafts Ink – Anything Goes
