Lilac lovely...

I was asked my Nan to make a card for my cousin for her 21st which is at the end of this month and I couldn't think of anything for aaaages but I came across these beautiful papers from Making Memories and everything started to fall into place! It's funny how you can sit there for ages and then you pick something up (paper, ribbon, embellishment) and then the ideas will start to flow! Hurrah :o)
I thought I would also enter this for this week's Anyone for Anya challenge (Paper Piecing) and also Passion for Promarker's which had a recipe to follow: 3 shapes (not including the card) so I've got a circle, square and rectangle, 2 papers -the two different patterned bits and 1 ribbon (butI forgot it was only 1 ribbon and I got a bit carried away with 2 - hope they won't mind & penalise me too much for that so I thought I'd enter it anyway!) Here is my card...

Birthday Anya - coluored in with promarkers and the flame is embellished with glitter...

Cute little metal flower and the all important '21'....

I am liking this ribbon technique...cute little lilac gem..

Gorgeous Making Memories paper with the light mint green and lilac...


Plain Lilac Card
Making Memories Paper, Metal Flower, Letters & Numbers, Ribbon & Gems
TGF Birthday Anya stamp coloured in with Promarkers and embellished with Papermania Fine Glitter

Really like these colours and probably wouldn't put them together and was (pleasantly!) surprised at how they complimented each other!

Have a good Monday...roll on 5pm!

Much love,
