Lovely lilac

Hello and happy Thursday ! It is once again time for another yummy colour combo over at colour create challenge blog.

This week Sabrina chose the yummy colour combo of lilac, blue, kraft and white/cream. Here is a little photo inspiration
I have gone for a simple card this time around using some scraps from the ever bulging scraps drawer. Yes although I have been using mostly scraps since after Christmas it has not, as yet, had an impact on the volume of it ! I am pretty sure I could use scraps all year and still not clear it !
These scraps are digi papers from pink petticoat. I have edged the papers and the base card with glamour dust - I love how this glitter just lifts everything - making it twinkle :)

I added a Zva pearl swirl (well a bit chopped off one !) then some lace and slim satin ribbon.

Sabrina's optional extra this week is to add a handmade paper charm this is a new technique for me and I will def be trying it more in the future - thanks Sabrina x
For my "charm" I used a punch to make a small heart covered it with glossy accents and covered with more glamour dust when it was dry I added a sequin front & back and added to my card with embroidery silk and a button.

I hope you will hop across to the colour create challenge blog to check out all the other DT projects and get all the details of the challenge the join in and play along with us x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;
