Lilacs in March

My CD Sunday card this week was - as I said - for the husband of a friend of mine - and now here is the card I made for his wife - my friend.
Her Birthday was on Sunday so a bit early for Lilacs but I like them and find any excuse to use them.

The CD used was Jayne Shasky's 'from the heart of the garden'. I printed out a vellum wrap to put under the image with a row of embossed dots to outline the picture.  The bow is an Itty Bitty bow and the sentiment is a die cut. I decoupaged the little butterfly and added gems for the body and also added some  in the empty corners of the image.


  1. Really beautiful Carol love the colours.

  2. I like lilac too Carol and this makes a super card for a Birthday no matter what time of year.

  3. Great card, Lovely image, I don't think it matters if the flower is out or not, floral pictures can be used the whole year round.

  4. Just so pretty Carol, lilacs always make me think of my parents' garden, and the scent in springtime is awesome. Lovely combination of colours. Hugs xx

  5. How beautiful Carol! I love lilac!
