Lilac, Blue and Cream Scribble Daisies Anniversary

Here is the anniversary card that I made for my matey Teresa and her hubby Ken. I wanted to go with something a bit more summery so opted for the lilac colour tones.

Three panels were cut from white card and stamped with the Scribble Daisy stamp from the Papermania Hampstead Collection Sketch Flower stamp set using Brilliance Pearlescent Purple pigment ink. The panels were then matted onto blue paper and scalloped lilac squares die cut using a Nestabilities die.

A strip of the mottled blue paper from the HOTP Floral Ultimate Cardmaker's Creative Pack was matted onto the lilac card and across a panel of the lilac, blue and cream weave patterned paper from the same paper pad. This was then punched with the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch and matted onto the blue paper and lilac card.

Detail of image and sentiment
The 'Togetherness' sentiment, from the Making Memories Express It stamp set, was stamped using the Pearlescent Purple ink and matted onto the blue and lilac. Once the card was assembled, the lilac pearls from the Kort and Godt pastels set were added between the image panels. It seemed only fair that I used the pearls on Teresa's card as she very kindly split a couple of the sets with me!!

Here are the blog challenges I am entering this card into:
