Lilac card Again!!!!

Good Afternoon my crafty friends and followers

Yes I have done a card in lilac again!  Sorry for those of you who don't lilac but as Kay would say everything Linda likes is lilac!!  Well it would be rude not to wouldn't it?  I have at last been able to get outside to photograph my photographs and this sure helps in showing them on my blog. 

Today I have used another of Sherri Baldy's digi's.  You can view a whole range of digi's at Scrapbook Stamp Society from fabulous artists such a Heather Valentin, Morgan Fitzsimons and Mitzi Sato-Wiuff to name but a few who all do the most amazing digi's and stamps too.  If you like my digi which is called Bunny and Beatrice then you can buy her here.

Recipe & Method

1.  Using card from Keepsake (The Glitter Girls) I made a stepper card.  This card is different shades of purples and lilacs with lovely floral design in gold.
2.  I printed of Bunny and Beatrice onto Neenah card cut out using Spellbinder die and coloured in using watercolour pencils and Sakura gel pens.  I then inked around her using Dew Drops VersaMagic in Pretty Petunia. I then layered her onto the card.
3.  I added pretty lilac feather and some beautiful roses also in lilac from my stash.
4.  To finish the card off I added the sentiment and attached to hat pins with lilac heads.

Thank you for Stopping by Today
