Lavender and Lace Birthday




I started with a lavender card stock base and embossed it with a TH damask ef, then added a piece of lace lined with a strip of pale plum cardstock. The focal panel was die-cut with a SB labels 18, then stamped with a SNSS birthday sentiment. I added an assortment of punched flowers, leaves and stems done with snippets of darker plum, pale plum, and green card stock. The final touch was to add some ivory pearls inside all of the flowers, and I called this one done!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your weekend is fabulous!

When I see embossing and flowers it grabs me every time. So pretty on the plum base, which is still a favorite SU! color. Thank you for playing along in our Lavender and Lace challenge at Double D!

You've definitely aced the inspiration atmosphere as well as the feminine color palette! Love your delicate lavender embossing with the lace (good tip to underline the lace with the darker color...it shows off the lace very nicely). Perfect s/b shape to go with the feel of this pretty card and of course the floral spray looks just so pretty! TFS &Hugs
