Lilac birthday card ....

The May Colour Challenge over on The Ribbon Girls blog is 'lilac and lavender' and there are some fabulous projects by the DT - please pop over and have a look - you can't fail to be inspired to get crafting!  The prizes are a £10 voucher for LOTV generously donated by the lovely Laila and Lisa, and a £10 voucher to spend in th Ribbon Girl online store

I made this lilac birthday card using a LOTV pre-printed image - the sentiment is from their new printed booklets, I just punched it out and added a backing which I enhanced with liquid pearls.

For my flower arrangement I used a Wild Orchid 35mm trellis rose and some lilac/purple sweetheart blossoms, a Kort  & Godt lilac rolled rose and Ribbon Girl white beaded stamens, lilac beaded berries and a white organza flower with a pearl centre.  I added a touch of Stardust Stickles to the rolled rose.

I added a clear 5mm gem to a silver colour butterfly from a pack of 5, bent it's wings up slightly.  You can see the piece of faux diamante mesh I cut from a 6-row piece - it's very versatile and so easy to use

I finished my card with 22mm white guipure lace and 7mm orchid satin ribbon both adhered with 3mm sticky tape, a few pearls and a little Stardust Stickles.

Ribbon, lace, butterfly, stickles, flowers, beaded berries, stamens, liquid pearls and sticky tape are all from The Ribbon Girl

thanks for visiting and see you soon,
