Lovely Lilacs

Hello!  Lilacs are such a beautiful and fragrant blossom.  We have a Lilac bush but it does not bloom every year....not very dependable.  I printed Power Poppy's digital image of Lilacs in bloom on white CS and colored with Copics.  The Power Poppy Sentiment was stamped with Memento Pear Tart ink.  I place this on an embossed layer of the same green color and on a card base of Bazzill Lilac textured CS.  Finished with a lovely satin ribbon that I won in a challenge and a handmade bow.
Don't you love the little ladybug on the leaf?...part of the stamp.

The Card Concept: #54 Spring Flowers-I was inspired by the lilacs and colors in the photo. My card is a Clean and Layered style.
Addicted to Stamps and more: Challenge #192 Make your mark. Used Copic Markers.
Fab n Funky Challenges: 303 Use 3 or more Layers.

Nice job of silhouetting the lilac. I see that you got your inspiration from the colors. The touches of ribbon and the frames are wonderful. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge. Good luck, and hope to see you again.

I love lilacs. We grew up with them in our backyard and they smell just so beautiful. Your card is wonderful and the way it brought me back to my childhood makes this card absolutely perfect. Cards should spark something in someone and this one did it for me. I love the bow you added and it's a great embellishment on this pretty card! Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our May challenge! --Gail
