Just for Lilian

This is the last Just For You card I made in 2013 and the very last card from 2013 to post about.  It was for a Lilian, a friend, who celebrated her birthday on Christmas Eve.  This card was made using patterned papers from the Nitwit Collection Promises along with plain and pearlescent lilac card and dark purple card.  Check back to this post - Just For U - to find out how this card was put together.

Dark purple thread was used to stitch a border around the sentiment and the backing panel.  Lilac grosgrain ribbon and purple brads were added as embellishments.

The flower embellishments were bought ones with a few smaller punched ones added amongst them.  Tonic's small flower punch was used to make these little flowers from odd bits of the dark purple card stock.  Brads and small self adhesive gems were added to the flower centres.

Just before Christmas Lilian visited bringing this lovely Christmas floral display.  She's brought me several arrangements through the year which have been much appreciated.  I think she knows my skills with flowers are limited to paper ones.

Thanks for reading today
