Lavender is definitely going to be in my herb garden!


Hello my friends!!! I hope you are all doing well!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I have a card to share with you today, made with the February set "Lavender" from Our Daily Bread designs.  I am entering it in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  Wanda is the hostess this week and she chose Black, Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Garden Green and Almost Amethyst.  Yum!


I am just in love with Lavender!  It has so many wonderful properties and can be used for so many things!  I have decided to grow it in my herb garden next year!  I can't wait!!!

  I stamped  the gorgeous lavender image with Black Memento ink and colored with Copics, then cut with the ODBD Custom Antique Labels and border die.  I sponged antique linen on the edges and around the image to vintage it up a bit.  I cut the ODBD Custom Quatrefoil Pattern die from Perfect Plum card stock(the closest I have to wisteria wonder), and using a Spellbinders A2 Bracket Border, I cut the right side of some Prima Meadow Lark paper.  That was mounted on a Crumb Cake base.  The little lace, stick pin, medallion and pearls finished it off.  I am trying to make a bunch of cards for the rack at church that do not have a specific sentiments or occasions on them so they can be used for any occasion or just notes of encouragement as needed.... so this should work for that. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a blessed week!!!

I can almost smell the lavender your card is so beautiful Grace.
I harvest my lavender just before Christmas most years, and that is one of the smells I associate with getting ready for the festival. Now it is dried, I need to strip it...
Blessings

I love the way you used the lavender on your pretty card!! The lace is so pretty too. I need to plant some more of this too - my last crop died.
