Peaches and Lilacs....


Well I finally got to enjoy some sun last night and my son had his first baseball practice of the year. I actually made this card Sunday night right after I saw the theme at MDUC...lol. And no there are no peaches, just the colour peach, purple and cream.
Not sure how I feel about the card though. I think I should have had more white/purple papers instead of so many peach/cream. And I wish I would have coloured the hat a different colour than her dress, but she's still sweet. And it's a lot nicer IRL. Let's see I have coloured with copics. The lace and ribbon are from my stash. The pins I made with misc. beads. The butterflies are MS punches. the beautiful flowers minus the purple one are from Wild Orchid Crafts. the sentiment die is from Spellbinders. The flowers I tried to dye peach, but I think they got a bit too dark...lol

IMHO this card is stunning! I love all the design elements of the card and there is a perfect balance of peach and purple. Your coloring and the softness of the panel behind Tilda are very vintage looking to me. Beautiful floral arrangement and the Spellbinder die you used for your sentiment is beautiful. Excellent card...hugs...Barb
