Lavender and Lace

Good morning, and happy Thursday!!  Only one more day until the weekend, thank goodness.  I do love my weekends, don't you?

Another great thing about Thursdays....it's Digi Doodle Shop's challenge time!!  Woo hoo!  This week we have  a fun one for you....Lavender and Lace.  Many of my friends say purple is their favorite color, so I love to make cards in all shades of purple...I know there's always someone who will love it!  =D


For this week I used the fabulous Spring Gathering image, which can be found here.  I just love that dress, and all of the pretty flowers.  I colored the image with Copics.  The papers are from DCWV's Once Upon a Time Mat Stack, Prima's Nursery Tales Stack, and DCWV's Glam Girls stack.  The butterflies are one of my brand new EK punches.  It's one of the ones that has three different settings, so it's perfect for layering.  (Each butterfly is three layers, and then the top was coated with Stickles.)  The lace and flowers are from JoAnn Fabrics.

I had so much fun with this theme...I really hope that you will have a little fun and join in!  =D  Head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to get some inspiration from the rest of the DT.  (These ladies are so talented; they just blow me away!)  

Don't forget, for the month of October all Halloween and Scenic images are 25% off!  PLUS, there's the fall special...where any purchase of $5 or more gets you these images FREE!


Head on over to the Digi Doodle Shop to snap up these fabulous deals while they last!

Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you soon!

Hi Starla,

When I look at your card, I imagine an Irish Lass standing in a field of clover. So very serene and sophisticated. Those silk flowers are beautiful too.
