Shades of lavender .....

The November colour challenge over at The Ribbon Girls Blog starts today - shades of lavender - you can create any type of project (cards, scrapbookk layouts, knit, sew,  boxes, ornament etc using any colours from the lavender/purple colour range. 
I decorated a cracker (from Paula) using Lily of the Valley nitwit papers and the small squares from mini masterpieces No 24.  I die cut the little images and placed them on a pretty die cut oval mat, all edges were distressed with tea dye ink.  I added lavender tiny ric rac and ivory 10mm vintage style cotton lace, lilac gems and some pretty lavender/ silver metallic edge ribbon.  The flowers are WOC white cosmos, Kort & Godt beaded berries,  a white cherry blossom and some white hip rosebuds.  I used 3mm double sided tape to adhere the laceand the ric rac around the cracker. This cracker would make a pretty gift if filled with chocolates or a bag of fragrant lavender - crackers are for every day, not just for Christmas!
I hope you will find time to go and look at the inspiration of the super talented design team - and you have two weeks to enter your project.  Good luck and see you soon
