The theme this week at Colour Create is "LILAC & BLUE" and the optional extra's to use ribbon and swirl's.
There's some great candy up for grab's this week this is open to everyone entering this challenge,due to this all that's asked is for you not to combine challenges,boy would i like to get my hands on this little lot,included id the much sort after Anya's :0).
Enough of my waffling,onto my card.

Recipe :-
Base card Papermania "scolloped",i do like these but feel they are rather flimsy,i normally use a heavier base card.
All other card from stash.
The sentiment stamp is hero Arts "Treasure the Moments".
HOTP swirl stamp.
Fabric flowers Papermania.
Doily,ribbon,hatpins and beads all from bit box.
All edges distressed and then rubbed over with "Antique Linen" distress ink.
Well that's about it folks,have a lovely day
Take care
San xx
