Hi Christine!! Your colours are so striking...beautifully coloured image!! The lilacs look so authentic (trying out new words here...lol)!!! I think lilacs are probably my most favourite flower as their smell is so fresh and beautiful!! I love that big perfect bow!!! Have a most wonderful day Christine!!

Gorgeous card Christine :-) Gruffie is adorable and the papers and colours are perfect :-)
I love lilacs, when I was little this lovely 'old' man ( he was probably about 30 yrs old, but old to me when I was 6, lol ) used to give me a bunch of lilacs every day when they were in season, for me to give to my teacher :-) this image always invokes such happy memories :-)
