Lavender Friends

My Clean and Simple card today is for two challenges

The first is CAS Colours and Sketches with this layout,

and Play Date Cafe with the colours

Here's my card


I started by cutting three lilac card Nestie scallop circles in the Big Shot and topping them with some off white circles. With Wisteria, on one, I stamped the centre of a filigree pattern, and on another one a flower. With Apricot, I stamped the "Friends F" on the last circle. The circles were then stuck on a white base with 3D pads for dimension, and the sentiment stamped under the first. I then stamped the small flower and two butterflies on white card, cut them out, and added them in place. The butterflies bodies are pearl gems, and a yellow gem was put in the centre of the small flower.

Supplies :
Card = Naturals White, Lilac and White base FMS
Stamps = Bliss, Vintage Vogue and Verve
Inks = Wisteria Wonder and Apricot Appeal
Tools = Big Shot, and Nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads, Pearls and Gem

I hope you've all had a great Easter, and have enjoyed the dry, but cold, days. Yesterday, we had an Egg Hunt at my Sister's for Sophie and Nathan. We hid the eggs, found the eggs, hid them, found them, hid them etc.......... eventually, when icicles were forming on our noses, we managed to talk the kids inside with the promise of eating all the chocolate they wanted, just so us adults could defrost with a nice tea and coffee!!.
As it is half term for our area, I'll be doing a lot of Auntie and child stuff this week, and of course that involves being the odd Super Hero or two!!!

Back soon
