This is a card I made for my mum's birthday (1st September). She loves lilac and this background paper from Basic Grey is just black and white and I added some lilac to it with my lilac Tombow pen. I then made the shaker with a Forever Friends stamp, some 'sprinkles', sequins and fairy dust.
I then mounted it onto scalloped mirri card and added the lilac dragonfly and the lavender flowers with gemstones from PoundLand. I think it's very effective with the black, grey and white background paper. Hope she likes it?
