Lovely in Lilac!!

Well I think so anyway. I haven't managed to stay away from my usual colourway for long. This is a card for my mother-in-law's birthday and I hope she'll like the image I chose for her. It'll remind her of any one of her granddaughters I'm sure!

DPs - Papermania Capsule Collection in Heather - Party Girls Cute Square from Lili of the Valley.
Dreamy Days circular sentiment also from Lili of the Valley.
White and lilac card from stash.  Paper Cellar Rafia Lace in Lilac.  Paper Cellar Flowers.
Papermania Mosaics.  Pearl in centre of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Tools used - Nestabilities Plain and Scalloped Circles and Lacey Square.  Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet.

I've managed to get a close up of the sentiment. I think my aim for 2011 is to improve my photography skills and learn how to use a photo-editing package.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

       Cupcake Craft Challenge 124-Something New (new image square,DPs & raffia lace)
       Meljens square or round cards
       Pollycraft, Challenge 75 New Beginnings  (new image square, DPs and raffia lace)

That's my card for today then. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
