365 Cards - #114 Lovin' Lavender

Well you all know I love any shade of purple so I was doing the happy dance tonight when I saw the challenge over at 365 Cards whereby lavender had to be the dominant colour so I think I achieved that one. I have had this piece of DCWV paper from Once Upon A Time paper stack which my daughter gave me ages ago and tonight seemed like the perfect time to put it to use. Once I decided to use it then the stamp had to be new age type as this is what the paper reminds me of lol. I think I went a little overboard on the glitter and the hand drawn stars around the image hehehe. I stamped my Autumn Leaves Flourishes stamp onto one of my flowers because I love this look. I guess that is about it for tonight. I have to get to bed at a decent hour because I am looking after my little grandaughter tomorrow. I usually stay up later so I can comment on all the lovelies you girls create from US and England as you are different time zones to me but I will have to make comments tomorrow ladies I apologise in advance for that.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
