Lilac Daydreams

Today, as I promised, I have made a card without using my new flower stamp, and colouring in with my AP!
What do you think of this CAS card? I apologise for the poor photo quality, but the Gremlins are back in my camera!!

The medallions were stamped in various purple tones on white card, cut with a Nestie and laid on a lilac scallop circle, and then on 3D pads. The sentiment was stamped underneath, and it was finished off with butterfly shaped and tiny size gems. 

I will be entering these challenges :

The sketch is from CASe this Sketch,

the colours from this photo at

and lastly, Paper Players have the theme

Supplies :
Card - Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, and base FMS
Stamps - Daydream Medallions, and Express Yourself
Inks - Elegant Eggplant, Lovely Lilac, and Wisteria Wonder
Tools - Big Shot, Nestabilities, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras - 3D Pads and Gems

Today, I've melted in the heatwave we're having here in the UK, and I must be the only person in the country who is unhappy about the weather as it causes my RA to flare up. With the heat and my pain, sleeping is very difficult, so I am hoping and praying that the temperature will drop a little.

Tomorrow my niece and nephew are coming and we're going strawberry picking as they've never been. Luckily the farm we are going to, has the plants up on tables under poly tunnels, so it is easier than bending down to pick the fruit. I just hope it isn't too hot?

Thanks for dropping by
