Lavender and Lace

Our theme this week for my Monday night craft session was anything purple or lilac.  So after tea and blueberry muffins we got started and this is what I came up with.
The gorgeous image is a freebie from Free Vintage Digital Stamps and had been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, making use of some of the really pale Flexies and limited edition spring Pros.  Imagine what you'd pay for a rubber stamp that detailed?  To get it free is just great!
The papers and lace borders are all from a massive Hunkydory bargain pack I got a while ago, and yes, I know, if I didn't spend so much on bargain stash I might be able to afford new clothes!
The sentiment stamp is from a Papermania Lucy Cromwell set, I love the sentiments from that set, the script is so lovely and looks almost handwritten.
The corner embellishments were made with a Marianne die and the flowers were fussy cut from some Prima papers.
I ribbon, bow, blobs of Pearl Pen and lashings of Diamond Stickles finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Joanna Sheen - lavender and lace
Stampalot - bingo, I used purple/lilac, lace/ribbon and pink
Passion for Promarkers - #154 - pastels and glitter ( there's a lot of Stickles on this that doesn't show very well in the pics and the lace borders are heavily glittered too)
Tammy's Scrappin' Corner - #15 - ribbons and bows
Gingerloft - #42 - vintage
Sketch 'n' Stash - #90 - choice of sketch, I chose sketch # 76
