OUCH ... SERIOUSLY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE!

Me again

Tea is almost ready so need to be quick...

I loved the sketch / layout on CAS(E) this Sketch this week and decided to be clever and combine it with the Allsorts Challenge where the theme is Lavender and Lace.  I thought I can do that and I've got the perfect rubber stamp of lavender! HaHa!

The said rubber stamp has never been used and I must have bought it 3 years ago!  WHY do I hear you ask ... well basically I don't do rubber stamping hence this card is way out of my comfort zone.  I feel I should get into this form of stamping though but the pressure if you slip or it doesn't quite work out right is TOOOOOOOOOO much! I've even hauled out a mini thank you stamp.

Anyway hope you like my attempt to combine lavender and lace and as I've used a load of snippets of ribbon and papers it's going into Pixies Crafty Snippet Challenge.  If you pop over to the Pixie site there's an extra special prize up for grabs BUT there's a catch!  3 snippet cards needed over 2 weeks so this is my second entry - wish me luck.
