Put on Your Party Dress...Birthday Girl!

Hi there - I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I've been shopping quite a bit lately (shhh...don't tell the hubby), and ordered from several companies for the first time last week. I also received my first order from MFT last week. I just love this Jolinne stamp. She is so sweet and pretty. I tried to keep it light and airy with my coloring too. Her skirt is paper pieced and don't you just love the smell of lilacs! Even with my allergies, I cannot resist stopping and smelling them when they bloom in Spring!

I made this for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #15 called Stitches, Scallops and Sparkle and for the Caardvarks My Favorite Things/July Challenge for a birthday card!
The Play Date Cafe #38 - purple, lilac, lime green

Note: In real life, this card has a greenish tint to the lilac embossed vellum behind the image...the pic makes it look so gray - not a fan!

My Crafty Recipe:
Stamps: MFT Jolinne - Just For You and sentiments from Who's That Birthday Girl
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: DCWV card, K & Co. Juliana Lilace Embossed Vellum
Copics: E000, E00, E11, E13, C3, RV11, V12, V15, G17
Other: Jolee's Lilacs, Recollections pearls, AC Mini Marks rubon stitches, grosgrain and organdy ribbon from stash, Fiskars scalloped edge punch, Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Lg.

I hope you like it! Have a great day and stay cool!
