CR84FN 35

I am really into Lavender and Green at the moment so this colour swatch from CR84FN was definitely calling my name, although when I had finished my card I had such a job to get a photograph showing the true colours that I almost decided to give up!

 In the close up you can see the background I made with Pumice Stone and Milled Lavender Distress ink, I then distressed the edges before setting it into the frame.

After stamping the Hydrangea I have cut it out and pop dotted it to the card adding some tiny pearls for dimension. 
I am also going to enter this into the Moxie Fab Worlds Fanatical about Botantical Challenge.

Its been so good to be back in my craft room, lucky me as I still have 4 weeks of school holidays left!!

Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps. CG196 Canvas Stripes, CG139 Cling Dots, S5324 Simple Frame, K5376 Hydrangea. S5435 Graph Background.  Distress Inks, Pumice Stone, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Tea Dye.

I am so glad you did not give up Sally! I love all the layers and where you positioned those pearls! And I adore that little lavender die cut piece that you glossed up, really beautiful, and the added twine and charm make this a very special piece of art!
