Lilac Let Loose

I decided to use some of the left-over papers from my last card making session and it's turned out to be VERY lilac.  I also wanted to experiment with making my own shaped card blank using my nestie labels set. Here's the end result which I'm quite pleased with although, as always, I can see where improvements could be made!

DPs - Papermania Capsule Collection in Heather
Card, Ribbon & Gems from Stash
Card Shape cut using Nestabilities Labels Eight
Flowers punched and embossed from DPs using Nellie Snellen Medium Floral Punch set
Lili of the Valley Dreamy Days Sentiment matted onto Nestabilities Scalloped Circle
Dragonfly - K&Co Glitter Bugs Grand Adhesions (colour changed using Amethyst ProMarker)
