Fanciful Lilac Birthday Card

Good afternoon to you all in the land of blog
Yesterday I went to have a cuddle, no pictures of me you can guess that bit but here is one of Matt, cuddling Oliver
Isn't he gorgeous, lots of photo's taken and being sent to me, so I will soon be getting on with his scrap book, that we bought for his mum and dad for his arrival.  Please not how Matt perfectly matches his attire lol xx

Any way last night we took care of Star, not too bad really and then today, I have been playing again, had a card for the family to get done, so here it is
The base colour is mirror silver this is also the complimenting colour.  The top papers are Papermania Capsule Collection.  The lace is from Grimsby Crafts, oh so pretty and this perfectly compliments the fabulous Tickled Pink image, the sentiment is My Sentiment Exactly and the little bow is from the Papermania collection also, the flowers in the main from Wild Orchid.

I followed the sketch at midnight madness

Thanks for stopping by my blog Kate with your sweet comments! That photo is precious. I am new to your blog so assuming this is your grandson - what a sweetie :) Love this card! I am a huge fan of TPS and I own this stamp, but my coloring skills are far inferior to yours.

Oh my word Kate, I was so busy staring at wee Oliver that I nearly missed your card! He's so beautiful. We had our wee nephew and niece down visiting and wee Elle is only 8 weeks old. She lay on my chest for 3 hours sleeping! Well as the song goes "Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow", lol. I was in Auntie heaven. Your card is really beautiful. I love the lace. Lee xx
