Lovely in Lilac

Morning everyone I'm getting a nice early start as I didn't post yesterday and I am off out for the day so I thought I would post the card I had for yesterday.  Its a new Tilda and I have made a birthday card in one of my favourite colours lilac:


So pretty in her little dungarees!  I have coloured her with Copics and cut her out with a Spellbinders die which I have used some Distress Ink Milled Lavender on.  There is a doily behind which I have also distressed with Milled Lavender.  I have put some Distress Ink on the flowers to tone them in with the papers, they are from Wild Orchid Craft.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a Spellbinder and sponged with some more Distress Ink.  I have coloured the gems with Copics to match and the border is made with a Nellie Snellen die.  Papers are from Pink Petticoat and ribbon from my stash. The little dove was fabric covered but I took that off and painted it with Crackle Paint and then Milled Lavender DI to finish off.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Bloggers - Distressing
Nettie G's Digital Gems - Spring (Pastel colours only)
Addicted to Stamps - Summer in Winter
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday Card and Sentiment
Marks Finest Papers - Birthday Card
Little Darlings - Polka Dots

That's it from me I'm off to get ready and out for the day!  Enjoy your day and take care xx
