Lavender and Lace



Morning Peeps, the first Monday of the month so time for our first new challenge of the year at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where our them was 'my choose and I have selected 'Lavender and Lace' , I love this colour although for some odd reason don't use it that often but I always think goes so well with the Vintage feel.

I used a FlonzCraft sweet silhouette image and added Pan Pastels to create a little scene, stamped around the edges with more FlonzCraft stamps, framed the piece with some lace and flowers and added a couple of little butterflies which are also FlonzCraft as is the sentiment.

Amended: Blog Hope changed to January 25th
Also a little heads up that next Wednesday over at Prickly Pear we are having a Blog Hop with two prizes of $75 to be won................last time I was mega pleased as one of my regular blog buddies Sarah was the winner from the comment she left me.

Although I won't be about and in hospital I have scheduled posts ready for 15th and 16th January so do keep an eye out for them, but in the meantime I hope you will help us spread the word and grab our Blog Hop badge to add to your sidebar.

Have a good week Peeps.

  24. The lace is a lovely frame for your scene & I love your combination of the lavender coloured fiowers with those soft pastel green leaves. The black silhouette immediately catches the attention & I love your softening of the edges with the leafy blossom stamps.
