Whiff of Joy Challenge #20: Lavender and Lace --- and Pearls

This week's Whiff of Joy Challenge is "Lavender and Lace", which is a beautiful combination itself. Well, I got a bit carried away with the pearls and the opalescent flowers, too.
The new WOJ spring stamps are so wonderful and I chose Kneeling Willow for this card. She is colored with Copics. The flowers are Fabric Fancies, something new at Michaels. Each jar has flowers of one color in four textures. The Pearls are from Hero Arts. The lavender CS is Bazzill and the DP is from a collection of papers I've had for years, as are the lace and ribbon. The shapes were cut on my Cuttlebug with Nesties.
I've been out of the loop a bit lately with traveling and a lazy mojo, but it is good to be back creating again. These beautiful stamps are very inspiring.
Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out the blog candy I am giving away to celebrate 5,000 hits on my blog.

Gorgous card Barb. (Aren't these new WOJ images fabulous?) Beautiful backing paper, gorgeously coloured image and stunning embellishments.
I'll have to stop there - I've run out of adjectives (lol).
