A second post today? I had two challenges whose deadlines were today. I meant to post one last night, but Blogger was quite contrary last night and I had a few words and then gave up trying to post. Fortunately posting is going more smoothly today.
The latest Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is hosted by Iwona Palamountain whose challenge is to use flowers. Everyone is talking about her longing for spring flowers and spring color. I chose the spring flowering lilac for the focal point of my card  I stamped it on cream cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. A few purple gems finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stamps: Lilac (Flourishes), Ticking Stripe(Cornish Heritage Farms)
