Frilly Lily

Afternoon everyone, hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

Guess what I did on Saturday?  I went and picked up my daughter's new car.  Yup, Daddy got her a car.  And guess what?  It's black and has five doors and was well within her budget!  Unbelievable!  How is it, that when I go shopping with something very specific in mind, I can NEVER find it.  Anyway, I picked it up on Saturday as both hubby and daughter were working.  Needless to say, Emma is extremely excited and started badgering me to take her out as soon as she came home. HELP!!

Milo was also quite entertaining this weekend, he usually is, but this really made me chuckle...
He actually climbed right up inside the chimney, then out again, covered in all sorts!

Anyway, enough of that.  My card today features Frilly Lily from Sherri Baldy's My Besties images.  I was playing around with my Distress Markers and Reinkers and this was created.  I really liked how it turned out and so I made a card with it.

You may (or may not) have noticed that I don't often use purple, of any hue, much in my crafting.  I think this stems from my childhood.  I remember being about 12 and having to wear THE most hideous pair of polyester purple trousers.  Obviously, I was traumatised by this!  Having said that, I really like this card. She kinda screamed out for purple papers and these Maja Design Vintage Spring papers are just too pretty not to be used.

Hope you like it.

A full list of ingredients is at the end of this post.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Many thanks for taking the time to stop by today, have a great week.
