Lavender sprigs

And now to my second card for today. I love the Life set, created by Lisa Johnson, one of the talented designers with PTI. I think it is simple but elegant.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and the lavender CS is Almost Amethyst by SU. I used my Scor Pal for the lines on the CS to add some depth. To stamp the image I colored directly onto the stamp with SU markers Lovely Lilac and Mellow Moss. I couldn't always get a good print on the heavy paper, so I added some Twinkling H2O's for a little stronger effect. Unfortunately you can't see it on the photograph. It has just a little bit of sheen. I used Buttercup for the yellow, Sage and Fern for the green and Sweet Lavender for the violet. The pearls are Robin's Nest Dew Drops and the ribbon is from my stash. For the inside I cut out 2 labels with my Nesties.
I got the idea for this card from another fabulous PTI designer - Debbie Olsen.
The card has already found a place in the office of a wonderful lady and I get to see it every day....hehehe
