Lilacs

Afternoon Folks
It's a beautiful Spring afternoon here in Hampshire, I love it and I've got my fingers crossed that the weather stays nice like this for a while! Hope the sun is shining where you are??

Just thought I should share the card I made for my Mother in Laws birthday next month, I think it has a Spring feel to it. I've also tried to make it a bit tactile too as her eyesight is not that good. The cute Gruffies stamp is called 'Lilac bouquet' and it's another stamp rescued from Ebay just before Christmas. 


Can't you just hear him sniffing!! By the way the mottled effect on the lilacs is my new Wink of Stella pen which looks quite glittery in real life but just looks splattery to my camera - grrrr!!


I've used a whole stack of MB dies on this:
Pippi Butterfly, Isabella butterfly, Fancy blossoms,
and Lavish branch
Coloured with promarkers and wink of Stella and liquid pearls
Sentiments - LOTV
Papers - Basic grey, Papermania and scraps
Doily, lace, twine and gems from stash
