Oh The Smell of Lilac's!

 I was "visiting" my blog friend "Curt's World" (his link is on my sidebar) and he had made a card using the Gruffles House Mouse stamp for a challenge with his design team.....I had to smile, as I had the same stamp sitting on my creative table to use.......I purchased the stamp along with Violet and Lavender Flower Soft waaaaaaaaaaaay back last year...so finally got around to using it!!!  I mixed the two colors together for a "shaded" look on my lilac's...now I have to admit I did try this once last year, but really messed up my card.....so today I took a deep breath and tried again....I used tweezers to apply the flower soft where I wanted....its so "3D"...you can almost smell them!!  The sentiment is from SU...I will be back tomorrow with a cute "girlie" card using an "old" favorite.

What an amazing job sweetie! I just posted this morning how Curt is my inspiration also...lol
I did a different image but I appreciate all the work you did on this one. It does look like you could just smell it right there.

Great card. I love that image and you did a fabulous job with the flower soft! I can never use it for flowers, it turns out to be a gloppy mess but yours really looks like flowers!
