Lavender and Lace GDT card for Crafty little Fairies

Good morning all

Well where did January go then!! - when Squirrel asked me if I would like to do a GDT spot  as a pink fairy at Crafty Little fairies it was last year - all of a sudden we're one twelfth of the way through the next one  - how did that happen?

I'm really enjoying my little spot with Lilis Little Fairies and making the most of it showing of my gorgeous LOTV stamps - I could keep going for months just with the stamps I've got - and I'm always up for buying more!!

the challenge theme for this week is

Lavender and Lace

I decided to make a floral card for this challenge as it just sounds floral pretty! - and was going to make it a birthday card, but one of my dear friends lost her mother last week so I decided that this was the perfect pretty image for a sympathy card instead

The image I used is the lovely Foxgloves available here

As you can see I kept it fairly simple keeping the image as the main focus of the card, sticking very much to the theme lavender and a touch of lovely lace.   I loved colouring this image - I love florals and don't use them nearly enough - its nice not to colour skin and clothes for a change.  With all those lovely girly stamps over at LOTV I think you could really go to town with a frilly , lacy totally glammed up card for this challenge - but I'm very happy with my fairly simple card, its so much easier  with the other type, I often just don't know where to stop - or sometimes where to start for that matter lol.

Here's what I did

Image -Foxgloves from LOTV
Coloured with copics and prismacolour pencil
card - bazzill basics
papers - Meadowlark from Prima
Sentiment - Anna Griffin
Pearls - Martha Stewart
Lace - WOC
Grey seam binding ribbon - crafty ribbons

We'd love to see some pretty card for this weeks challenge
