Lilac Sparkle

Good Morning my crafty friends,followers and visitors,

Welcome to my blog for today, I hope everyone is well?.  We have had some
lovely weather this week and you would not know that is was the end of
September especially on Tuesday as we had clear blue skies and sunshine.
I even had to take my coat off in town as it was that warm.

Sorry I have not blogged since Monday but somehow the days seem to be running
away from me and what with one thing and another before I know it, its evening
and tea time.  After that I usually sit down with hubby to watch some TV, then
the usual happens, Yes Jennifer falls asleep.

Anyway I hope you will like today's offering.


1. Card is 8 x8 scalloped edge and I have matted it with Lilac
card that I have embossed using Creative Expression folder
Quilted Flower.

2. I then took a piece of white card and masked it using the
Creative Expressions mask Filigree and then used Cosmic
Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste  Lilac Blush to create the

3. Whilst I waited for it to dry I took the petal dies that was a
freebie with the new Tattered Lace Magazine and cut out
12 large petals and  20  small petals out of lilac card, These
are great dies and so easy to create a stunning flower. Once
the petals were all folded I adhered them to a piece of card,
that had been punched out into a circle to create the flower
  and finished it by adding a gem to the centre.

4. Once the paste was completely dry I adhered the flower
to the centre then using foam pads I adhered it at
an angle onto my card base.  To complete I added
the sentiment (With Love ) from my stash.

Well that's all for today my friends

As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
