IB176 Lilac Sympathy

 Happy Thursday, all!  We have a lovely floral inspiration photo for you today at Inspired By:

Well, I don't have any lilac stamps, but I did find some hyacinth ones in my W+9 Spring Blessings set, so I stamped and diecut several of the images to create a sympathy card for a close friend:


Purple hues are ones I don't gravitate to, but I did enjoy playing with these!  I used Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape to create these, along with some Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose for the pink ones!  The leaves were stamped with Soft Seafoam and Soft Succulent:



My little wooden crate was stamped with Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate and embellished with some Linen thread.  The circular background is some digital gingham and it fits the optional sketch for this week:


Finally, I stamped a two-color sentiment on a Tailored Tag and layered it on top of the card base, which was embossed with the Pinewood Planks EF.  It got a Linen thread bow as well as an In Color Jewel, which I also added to some of the flowers.


Thanks so much for visiting today!  I hope you'll play along with our pretty floral inspiration...you can use the flowers, colors or just the sketch!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Hyacinths are the second most fragrant of all flowers in my humble opinion, LeAnne - a gorgeous substitute in my humble opinion - so beautifully colored, and such a cute vessel for them to be delivered in!

Beautiful card, LeAnne! Love the crate of flowers and the embossed cardbase! They go well together and the EF brings a nice texture! Love the variety of colors on your flowers and how you place them on top of the circle of DSP! Great design, too! TFS and hope you enjoy this nice day ahead as we are in for rain most of the holiday weekend.
