Lady in Lavender

This week's challenge over at the Play Date Cafe is a soft colour combination chosen by new DT member Jules whose lovely blog A Vintage Chic  is well worth a look for the gorgeous vintage projects and lots of mouth watering recipes.

My card is quite a simple one as I didn't want to swamp the beautiful image with too much detail.

Ingredients Used:
The stamp is a lovely rose I've had for ages (source unknown)
Palette ink in Lavender Sachet
VersaColor ink in Sky Blue and Lilac
Vintage Image from Art Freebies
Lilac Mulberry Paper
White Japanese Lace Paper
Stitched Ribbon
Silver Ribbon Buckle from Making Memories
The simple background paper is made by stamping the rose all over a square of soft blue card with the Lavender ink and then sponging on a little lilac ink in the rose centres.
I inked the edges of the printed out image and then assembled the layers as shown on a white textured square card.
