Study in Lilac

Hi girls. You could be forgiven for thinking that I had dropped off the edge of the planet because I have not exactly been active in blogland lately. I am trying to keep my hand in but just don't have the energy most of the time. Anyway enough of that. A warm welcome and thank you for calling in on me. I hope that your week has started well and that you are enjoying your crafting and blogging.
I made this card with no challenge in mind. I simply fancied making something in shades of lilac. The image is Lilli of the Valley's "Best Friends" and is coloured using my Copics. The design papers is are from Papermania's "Capsule Boysenberry" and I have used lilac bazzil as a mount. The punched border across the middle is Martha Stewart's "Double Arches" and the flowers are from Wild Orchid. The ribbon, gems and stickles are from my stash and the corner is cut with a Cuttlebug Vintage die.
If you have time to leave a comment for me on this card I would love to hear what you think of it and any constructive criticism is more than wlcomed. I value your opinions.
Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.
