Lilac and Lace for Gingerloft

Today the Gingerloft DT are showcasing their cards made with the theme "Lilac and Lace" and a digi from the Gingerloft store! The results are amazing as we are all so different. Why not go take a look! I am sure you all have some lilac paper and/or card and some, why not have a go at this challenge!

Here is my effort: I used the digi called French Starlight.  I printed it off on X-Press card after enlarging it slightly  I then coloured it up using the trust Copics, and die-cut it from the card using a Spellbinders circle with stars die.

It looks so good!

 I layered it up onto some purple card I had in stash which I had embossed with a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities - Ornamental Iron, trimmed to fit. I then layered some more using one of the Firefly Collection papers from Prima.  

The lace is from Ireland and comes from Waltzing Mouse and the lilac lace trim is from the stash. The flowers are from Bizzy Bec's store - beautiful velvet! The bling is from Annabelles Stamps. The card base is folded Bazzil. 

Taken inside - it's dark and raining outside! Tried to set up a makeship light box - two different tones but the top one is closer to true colour. 

This is too blue. 

I will enter this in the following challenges:
Catch the Bug: Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner: Anything Goes
The Sweet Stop: My take on their Sketch
