Pure White with a Touch of Lilac~



Hi All~

OMG same old weather here!! What on earth is going on, cannot remember the last time my hubby and I had our lunch outside when he finishes work early on a Friday, it must have been back in June! That really isn't funny, it's starting to annoy me now...And in the words of the HULK...You wouldn't like me when I am angry~

I have just recieved this gorgeous Greeting Farm stamp, it's one of the three stamps I won last week. Isn't she cute?
I chose the colour combo over at Anya Ink, and decided to add lilac to the Black White and another colour challenge.
The swirly white paper behind the image is a folder for my cuttlebug, it's been very useful and has a space in the middle to add an image, I have covered that over with a Nestie Matt in shiney black mirror card. I have added lilac ribbon from my stash and a couple of small roses in a dark grey colour. The striped black background paper is from a childs writing pad, I spotted it in a stationers and thought it would come in handy....have used it loads. It would be perfect for a back to school or teacher card. I have used Pro-Markers to colour, but not sure if I have done her hair right now I have seen the photo, I should have used a bit more shading, but I do like her little lilac dress!
I have used my Lable maker to type the little sentiment, I use this alot in Scrapbooking, but have only used it a few times in cardmaking, looks cool on this sort of card. The machine was only 99p from my local £1 shop..

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge--Ovals
Anya Ink--Black, White and Another
Friday Sketchers--Sketch
Papertake Weekly--White and Bright
