Lavender & Lace

Hello my blogging friends.
I am back again with my DT card for challenge #90 at Let's Craft and Create and the theme is ...lavender and lace.

For my card I decided to create my own background paper using a new stencil from Memory box and my Pan Pastels. I do like how this has come out, so will use it more often. Matted this onto a purple cardstock and attached some lace from my huge stash of lace. ...will I ever work through it all, but I need to remember to use it
The sentiment is from a sheet of Joycraft clear stamps...also new, stamped and cut out with a Nellie Snellen die cut, which I just love . Inked the edges. A lavender ribbon and pearls to finish.

I hope you will come and join in this challenge, and it has been decided that our challenges will last for a month, so you have until 8th April to enter.....but don't leave it till the last minute, come and have a look at the cards made by the DT. We would love to see your creations.

Love Ursula
