Lavender Card

Morning!  Today's card was made for my MIL for her 83rd birthday a couple of weeks ago - amazing she is too!!  The image is from a 12 x 12 page but I cannot remember the make, sorry but she is so lovely!  I've teamed her up with some Lili of the Valley papers and then loads of lush Marianne Dies which I've listed below.

Ivy Corners - CR1253
Lavender - LR0157
Foxgloves - LR0457
Large Bow - LR0447
I've also used a Tim Holtz die for the layer under the image, a wooden flourish and some lovely wooden miniature fretwork which I can only bear to use for special makes! I've also added some Vintage Lilac Frantage to the little wooden butterfly, along with Shabby White Frantage around the image and frame but it's not showing up to well in my pics but it does give a nice bit of shimmer!
I'm going to enter a few challenges today;

Have a great day whatever you are up to!

Hugs, Juliexx

What a pretty card, sure your MiL loved it. The use of the frantage works so well on the frame and the die cut embellishments really add to the overall look.
So pleased you linked up at Cardz4Galz. :)
