Lilac Festival

Where have I been?
I have guests and have been so busy I haven't had time to
visit or create for a bit.....
but I do have my post for the "Lilac Festival" challenge this week
at "Classy Cards 'n Such" to share.
I hope you will join in with us....
there is an awesome prize!

Hello Classy Friends,
This week at Classy Cards 'n Such our challenge is "Lilac Festival"
Make a paper project using lavender, purples and neutral colors.

For my challenge card, I chose to make a round shaped card.
I first cut a base from a Spellbinders basic circle die.
Then I cut my top layer using Spellbinders Heart Circles die.
I didn't stop there as I stenciled the die cut using a
I sponged on two colors of Tim Holtz Distress ink
first a lighter color "Shaded Lilac"
then came back over here and there and sponged with TH "Dusty Concord".
To sponge on my colors I used the new Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool.
I love how the background looks on this card!!

I added 3 various size butterflies using Joy! Crafts Butterfly Trio dies.
cut from the gorgeous "So Silk Fabulous Purple" 130# card stock!!
I added "Baby Pearls" purple to my butterflies.....
To finish my card, I stamped "Hello" from the JustRite stamp set "Hello Daisy"

I would love to see "you" join us in our challenge this week!!!
