Lilac and Lavender

Hello crafters and friends,

Today's card is a pretty monochromatic one.  One that's all shades of purple and lilac.

The image is one by Sherri Baldy who kindly shared it as a freebie.  They are the prettiest little darlings.

To the card I added some purple trimmed lace and sheer purple organza ribbon from my stash.  Also attached a purple butterfly charm and some paper flowers and leaves.  A paper doily was also added to the background but as you can see its almost completely covered by the image.

A close up of the girls.  They were coloured with copics.
Copics used:
Hair - E18 E15 E13 E30
Skin - E000 E00 E21 E11
Clothes - V91 V93 V95 V99, V0000 V000 V01, BV0000 BV00 BV01 BV02 BV04
Shoes - E40 E42 E44
Background / floor - BV20 BV23 C0 C1

The inside of the cards is also decorated with the same papers, lace and doily.
I hope you enjoyed my card and thank you for visiting.
