with love

I had a little play with some old stamps and ink pads. The ink pad is a Brilliance pearlescent lavender which I have had for years and is still moist. My stamps are Lavinias dandelions, they were my first Lavinia stamps and are very versitile. The lavender block of colour is made with a Whispas stramp. A very simple card using an old sketch from Sketch and Stash challenge no 42. and Martha Stewart border punch.
I have used Liquid Pearl dots and glitter on the dandelion heads, but it is hard to see in the photographs.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
