Pretty liliac Tilda

Many of you who visit regularly will know I am not a girly girl and struggle with lace and lots of embellishments but I keep trying and am quite proud of my first card with lace on. Purely fluke really as I found this lace along with some other bits stuffed into a bag that must have been there for like forever when I was looking for my sewing machine foot to repair sons trousers and then there are 2 challenges wanting lace, hows that for fate.

My card well the image I have had coloured for ages and it has been sat on my desk ontop of a piece of butterfly paper ever since , so when I found a challenge at Totally Tilda that wanted liliac how could I not enter and use this cutie?

I decided to make a birthday card for an old school friend who I got back in contact with last year, she now lives down south but birthday cards and christmas cards are a good way to stay in touch, and her birthday is in september.

The card is a bit fancy for me but a change in style outside your comfort zone is always good , well once in a while so I used a pearlised base caed and the papers are both forever friends I think but as they are from my scrap folder not 100% sure ...sorry. The flowers are made from ribbon using a tutorial atr really reasonable ribbons with ribbon from my stash. The lace as I said I found, can't think where it's from but it's quite pretty with the little bit of sparkle. The flat back pearls are from hobby craft and the other pearl blobs are liquid pearls. The roses are from my stash and Tilda is coloured with promarkers and stickles for extra sparkle.

Fab card Julye. I love lilac, one of my favourite colours.
I'm quite girly but I don't add too many embellies/lace etc, I'm not very good at knowing when to stop!
Love Elaine xx
