Lovely Lavender Lilac

It's challenge time over at the Pile It On Challenge Blog
This week we are being sponsored by Aurora Wings

They are offering our winner a $10 gift certificate to their Etsy Store. Wow!

Thanks so much, Aurora Wings!

They also have a blog and their on challenges. You can find that HERE.

I used their Lilac 1 image which I just fell in love with. I think that this image can be used a hundred different ways and I can't wait to try more of those ways out.

I started with an Elegant Eggplant card base and Pumpkin Pie mat embossed with a Cuttlebug Damask folder. I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and used my oval Nestabilities to die cut it out, along with a Wild Wasabi mat.

On the inside, I used a 1 inch and a 1 1/4 inch hole punches to create my little 'window'. I got this idea from the image they actually use on the site. It's simply stunning and I love the effect. I plan to try and create a whole card using that inspiration some time soon.

I haven't added a sentiment yet because this would really be used for just about anything. When I do add the sentiment, it will be stamped in Elegant Eggplant. 

Thank you so much for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
