Isabella's challenge

Talk about in the nick of time. This is my card for the challenge this week. We had to use the colours in the Isabella's blog header. They really are lovely colours and this is how I used them.

I matted a lilac cardstock onto white card. Punched the corners. The lilac card is a lot darker on the photo, as I had to use a flash, not getting it finished in time.
The image is one that I was lucky enough to win with the last challenge, and I just love it as there is so much to do with it. I coloured it with aquarelle pencils and used flower soft for the climbing roses.
The sentiment is from my recently acquired Justrite set.
Finished it off with pearls.
Hope you like it and see you soon.

Hope I matched the colours of tthe header.
