Just in Time!

Good afternoon and thank you for your visit

This is a card which I made a few weeks ago when I was crafting with a friend.

We used black archival ink to stamp various images onto scraps of paper to make some quick cards.

On this card I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights and just one gem and a piece of lilac coloured ribbon.

I'm very late but would like to join in on Mrs As blog in her Butterfly Challenge #62 - L is for Letters/Lilac.  It's just the lilac this time.

This is gorgeous! The white accents really make your black stamped images popped. This paper is the best choice for this card. You couldn't improve on this!

Just about to run the numbers and spotted a few last minute entries. Yours amongst them. Last but not least. I love the black inking with the lavender and the sentiment will count as the letter element so I will enter into the prizes twice. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
