Lovely lilac

Hello lovely people,

Before I get to the important stuff I just have to share that my craft room re-fit has all been completed but I haven't got round to taking photos of it so can't show you how awesome it is yet!  I won't keep you waiting much longer!

So, onto that important stuff and that is my Totally Gorjuss DT card.  We are sponsored by Crafters Companion this week and have this fab bingo grid for you to work with - you know the drill;
I went for the  'lace, string and pearls' column and no, I haven't got my DTs mixed up, I just decided to use a LOTV stamp because I love them so much!

I returned to my beautiful Maja papers before I had withdrawal symptoms and went for the lovely purple tones with a bit of added sparkle on the flowers using Frosted Lace Stickles.

I have used this stamp so many times and don't think I will ever get bored of it as it is so versatile and lovely to colour.

Card recipe;
Image: Teddy Bouquet from LOTV
DP: Maja Vintage Spring Basics (available from LLC)
Label shapes: cut with Cricut
Foliage: Memory Box Lavish Branch die
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl
Sentiment: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments

 I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
