The Card Concept Challenge #153-Loads of Lavender

Hello my stampy friends!

How is it going in your neck of the woods???

We are having a gorgeous spring. We do not have lavender in  North Carolina, but we have purple Wisteria. It is a big vine that grows all over our area this time of year and smells heavenly!

However, I wished we had Lavender, too.

 I was inspired by the beautiful lavender in our Inspiration photo to create my Clean & Layered style card:



 I didn't want to stamp the image in black ink and then color it.
Instead, I colored the stamp with Stampin Write Markers.
I placed the stamp into my Misti. I would then choose which color that I wanted to use and color one area at a time. This worked great!
I just love how it turned out!

I had this darling dragonfly die! I thought it made the perfect addition to my little flower garden!

Of course, I had to add some splatters!
And some sparkle with some Studio Katia Iridescent Crystals!

 The style of my card would be considered

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

I hope you will create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
All of the styles are explained HERE.

The Rules:

1.  Use the challenge inspiration to create a card.
2.  Use one of the challenge styles to create a card (or if you prefer, combine a few styles).
3.  Explain in a post which style or combination of styles you used and what inspired you from our photo.  
4.  Link your post using our linky (please link to the actual post on your blog and not just your blog).
5.  Please try to comment on the cards ahead of you and behind you in the linky.  Everyone loves comments!

The deadline to participate is 
Monday, April 26 at 12:00 pm EDT.
