Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 7

Hi everyone and a card today for Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge where this week the challenge is a lovely colour theme of Lilac and Lemon. Lots of inspiration from the design team so I hope you can join us.

I've used my Pansy image this week which will be available soon in the digi shop, the colouring is a combinatin of markers and pencils and I've matted it on lilac bazzil card. The card blank is made from lemon Core-dinations card which I've distressed on the edges, embossed with CB textile embossing folder. More distressing with some sanding over the embossing and round the edges and then sponging with dusty concord distress ink. The bottom edge of the card is punched with a ribbon border punch and threaded with lilac gingham ribbon to finish off. TFL and see you tomorrow with my BG card. Chris x
