Lavender & Lace

This is my card for this week's I love ProMarkers challenge blog. The theme was Lavender & Lace. I am also entering this card into DoCrafts Creativity! Club sketch challenge.

I begun by stamping the little girl image with a Memento ink pad. The stamp is 'Blissful' by Little Claire's. I coloured in the girl with ProMarkers. I cut the image out and mounted her onto purple and white card layers of Lacy Circles which I cut with Nestabilities with foam pads.

For the background I cut a large square of lilac card. Onto this I added two strips of patterned paper. The paper is by DoCrafts. I used Martha Stewart flower edge punch for the long edges. I attached strips of lace around two corners. I punched two Tiny Tags using Stampin' Up punch. Onto one I stamped 'love' using the Tiny Tags stamps. I added these to the card and a lace bow. I added purple dot around the edge of the card with a fineliner. To finish the card I added gems and DoCrafts fabric flowers.
