Sweet Little Lilac....



This morning I have a little card to share which I made for the Play Date Cafe challenge ... This is the inspiration photo .....

A beautiful Lupin all fresh and dewy ... the colours are bold and striking, which for some reason gave me a little trouble - maybe I  find soft colours easier .. anyway this is my card ....




My image is a digital Hero Arts image - Vintage Skyland Birds ... 

It is ironic that I am posting these lilac and purple colours as I have just discovered that last nights storm took out my beautiful fragrant lilac bush. It was just about to bloom and having only been planted late last year, as a tiny little thing ... it survived a bitter winter of snow and ice. I looked at it only yesterday with admiration and the kind of pride a mother gets to see her child flourish ...  I love all living things and to see something you have nurtured thrive is a joy ... right now I am so sad .....

Till soon

Ros

I am sorry to hear about your lilac bush!
I agree with you that this color is not as easy (as I thought at first), I tried and gave up, maybe I'll give it another try this weekend, yours is lovely though, I love that image!

beautiful card! I love your use of ribbons on this card to soften and give texture. The scallop border on the left is lovely with the digital image.
