Lavender, Lace and Pearls

I ran through my list of challenges and just could not make up my mind which to enter.  I gathered up co-ordinating paper and card and the required embellishments for lots of the challenges. I worked out my sketch , at the same time trying to work in  the elements I had chosen. I needed :-
an Easel card for http://craftsandmechallenges.blogspot.com/
PB image and a punch for http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/

to use Purple, Lime Green and Silver or Grey for http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/ (inspiration photo above)
make something sweet and use metal and ribbon for http://cookingitupwithkatie.blogspot.com/
use anything of my own choice for the anything goes challenges at http://www.charismacardz.blogspot.com/ and http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.com/

I stamped and water coloured my Penny Black image. I made some bows with Purple and White Lace. I found some sheer Lilac bows and some flowers with Pearls  in the middle and glued these all together. I also found some Silver Grey and Lilac edging which worked perfectly for The Play Date Cafe challenge. I punched out two Butterflies, mat and layered up my designer paper with Purple card and assembled my card. I was really pleased with the result even though it was a bit over the top. The layers on my bows made them just a little bit too big for this card but hey, the little girl who gets this will love it!
