Shabby Chic Tilda Picking Lilacs

Good Sunday to you my fellow stampers, scrapbookers, and all-around creative geniuses! Today is a cloudy day here in Southern California and we're expecting rain, but I love the rain so it's a wonderful day for me :)

Today I'm sharing a card made for the Simon Says Challenge which is Shabby Chic. I've used this Tilda Picking Lilacs stamp a few times now; I always seem to gravitate towards it. The Simon Says Stamp Store has her in stock here.

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda Picking Lilacs; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics; Paper: October Afternoon Report Card, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Shapeabilities; Prima flowers, Fiskars corner punch and corner rounder

This card is for a few challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Shabby Chic
  2. Crafty Creations - Textures
  3. One Stop Craft - Fancy edges and corners
  4. Ann's GCA Challenge - KaraMia Sofia Inspiration - I used this as my color inspiration
  5. Creative Inspirations - Distressing
  6. Magnolia Down Under - Valentine's
  7. Hope Stamps Eternal - Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #42 - Used the flowers and frosting as an inspiration
  8. Sketch Saturday - Week #86 Sketch
  9. Etsy Inspired Challenge - Amethyst Soap - I used this flower as an inspiration
  10. No Time To Stamp - Floral and Spring Colors
  11. Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Girly
Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments!
