Blue Lilacs


Hello my lovely crafty friends.
I do hope all is well with you, sending hugs to those in need of them.

Yesterday, for some reason, I felt like colouring in some flowers. I was too impatient to stamp or print any images so I was pleased to remember my LOTV Black and White Sketch Pad full of gorgeous wild flower images just waiting to be coloured.

Here is a card I made with the Lilacs image. I know I haven't used the correct colours,  I coloured them in blue so I could use some of my favourite papers!



Items Used:
Image - from LOTV Black and White Sketch Pad Set 3 Wild Flowers
coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Butterfly Stamp - Clearly Besotted Elegant Butterflies coloured with Promarkers
Organza Ribbon coloured with Promarkers
Small Pearls from Hobbyhouse 


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - anything goes with Ribbon
Glitter n Sparkle - use some blue
Love to Create - Bingo Ribbon/Blue/Flowers
LOTV Monthly Challenge - Crafty Bingo Ribbon/Pearls/Flowers
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes as long as it's square
Sentimental Sundays - Flowery Springtime


Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my card today. Your support and encouragement means so much to me and I love to read any comments you may wish to make

Bye for now
hugs
