Lavender and Yellow...

Good morning,,,,, and welcome to Friday...and a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog...our new theme is Lavender and Yellow.....and it is hosted by the lovely Diane....

We are very lucky that it is sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers and Fresh Brewed Designs...

Here is what I came up with, do hope that you like it...

 

I started by stamping this gorgeous Shepherds purse stamp from Clarity....( designed by my lovely teamie Mandy )

Then I decided to use some of my new Graphic 45 paper stash...oh it was a hard decision....

This is from the Time To Flourish Collection.....and is the month of May....

I added some colour around the edge of my card.....these new Distress inks from Mr. Tim are rather lovely too...

 

I added some colour using my Wink Of Stella pens....

Then came the butterflies,,,,stamped on Vellum and embossed with clear embossing powder...

Plus stamped onto card, coloured and cut out...

I do love this butterfly stamp...

And now the design begins to come together..

Some ribbon and bling...

And then the 3d butterflies...Plus some fab leaves from Sweet Lilac Flowers...

Yes....I do like the extra vellum..

And there we have it...

Plus the inside to match....

I do love to see what everyone creates so please do pop over and have a look...better still enter a design...

Have a good weekend....and be kind ....it is amazing how much better the world is when we are all kind to each other...

Love and hugs
