CR84FN20 Color Challenge

Hello there friends, and Happy Friday.  Just a quickie post today..... I've had no time to craft lately, because my kids are still on spring break and I've been painting walls, not canvases.  I've had the ingredients for this card on my craft table for several days, so I popped in and finished it at the last minute for the beautiful color challenge on CR84FN this week.  Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo:
Love it!  My lilac stamp is from Unity, colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I gathered some plum and lavender crepe as a trim, and finished it off with a little green moth and some green grosgrain ribbon.  Thanks so much to the wonderful design team over there for the continued inspiration - I always love the color palettes and beautiful sample creations!

that colouring is awesome, I've just started to play with Prisma pencils I've got the grand total of 4 but I'm def. getting some more as they blend beautifully for soft focus colouring.....I thought your lilacs were a printed image, the card is gorgeous

Just gorgeous, Jean! Lilaces are just about my favorite spring flower...I'm missing mine right now...it's been raining so constantly the last two weeks that I haven't been able to get out and enjoy them! Just peeking out at them through my rain-soaked kitchen window!

The two shades of lavender/lilac crepe paper are perfect...beautifully done, as always!
