My lavendar double challenge card

For all of you who have been playing in my Dirty Girl Challenge -THANK YOU! I am working my through commenting on all the entries. There are over 175, so it will take some time. I took a break today for some stamping!

I combined yesterday's SCS sketch 186 with this week's double dare challenge. This week Anne (Itsapassion) challenged us to make a card inspired by something in our kitchen! Well, the timing couldn't be more perfect. I keep a floral display on my kitchen hutch and rotate it with the seasons. Well, embarrassingly enough, I hadn't changed my display from the fall (yes, I know it's JULY!) and Tuesday morning I finally changed it to my spring/summer arrangement! So, my card is inpsired by the lavender colors in my floral arrangement. In reading the rules of the challenge I was also supposed to combine the card with one of the Dirty Dare challenges... I didn't do that, I am SO sorry ANNE!! Oops!

I chose this 2 Scoops Basic Grey paper for it's circle detailing that matches the vase on this great MFT stamp, Lavendar. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and added some dew drops in a couple of the circles. I used some of my Prisma papers and allowed the textured side of the Iced Teal piece to show. I stamped it with Sage Shadow using the swirls from Priceless. The cool striped organdy ribbon is in 5/8" from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.

Card Deets:
Stamps – MFT Presents Lavender, priceless
Paper - Prisma papers in Iced Teal, Frosted Cobalt, Nautical Blue Dark
Accessories - dew drops (the Lily Pad bottle), stickles, corner punch, dragonfly charm
