Lavender and Lace

Well, it has been quite chilly today.  Winter I think is well and truly upon us.  Only 1 week and 4 days to my holiday thank goodness.  Hopefully get a bit of a tan.
Now onto today's card.  The inspiration for this card came from the challenge over at Allsorts - Lavender and Lace and I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

The stamp I used is a free gift stamp that I got with a magazine several months ago.  I think it is Ladybug but not too sure.  Love the image of a little girl playing at dressing up - reminds me of my two girls when they were little, trying on my dresses.  After stamping the image I coloured it with promarkers and then attached some thin lace around the edges.  The background paper was a papermania one and I also used some glitter card. Under the glitter card is a piece of textured purple card, again edged with lace.  I finished it off with some roses, a punched butterfly and a cute little heart charm.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 123 - use the sketch provided
Allsorts week 125 - Lavender and Lace
Secret Crafter #156 - use white and one other colour
Crafty Pad #143 - monochromatic
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge 17 - Lace It Up

Thanks for looking and I look forward to any comments.
