Blissful in Lilac

I'm entering this card into three challenges. I found one of the challenges quite difficult to decide upon but once I had the others fell into place quite naturally. It required that we were to be "true to our own style". I know that I don't do fussy with lots of flowers, lace etc but, my own style? If anyone can enlighten me on this matter please let me know lol So, on to the challenges

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #124, based on the scripture Philippians 4:8 to create a card or project true to our own style

Play Date Cafe PDCC117, using colours blue, pink and lilac in pastel shades

The Pink Elephant TPE133, to use 1 image, 2 papers and 3 buttons. This is where I might come unstuck as a challenge entrant as I didn't have any tiny buttons that matched the colours so I've substituted them with gems. I understand if you want to delete me from the challenge because of this :o(

This is one of my favourite stamps. I love colouring her in but I also love paper piecing her dress and bag.

I think I should have carried the highlights on her hair right round to the back. Eventually I'll get hair right lol

  9. Beautiful card!!!! Regarding your comment on my felt flowers, they were cut from wool felt (which cuts beautifully) using a metal die cut set from Papertrey Ink. Their prices are quite reasonable and quality is awesome, not to mention the most darling products. Thanks for asking. have a great week!
