Lovely in Lavender!

I think my colour choice for this card must have been inspired by the colours on the sketch I followed from the Create4Fun's a vision in lavender! lol
I've also managed to include a few other challenge themes: the '3,2,1' of the Allsorts Challenge (in my case 3 papers, 2 circles and 1 flower); and the 'Stitching' theme of the Cuttlebug & Corrosive challenges. The image is from the 'Wonderful' set by Penny Black, the papers are by My Mind's Eye ('29th Street Market'), the flower is from Poppicrafts, and the sentiment is by Cuddly Buddly. I used my Cuttlebug 'Victoria' folder and 'Just my type' border folder for the embossing, which I then sanded to reveal the white core of the paper. After distressing all of the edges of the papers, I added some faux stitching using my Cutterbee Bug and a white gel pen.
