Lavender and old lace

I came down with a cold suddenly yesterday afternoon with a really choky throat and am feeling pretty awful today so no work for me.

It's my first week as part of the DT at A Pocket Full of Posies. I was so pleased with this challenge of Lavender and Old Lace, which was set before I joined, for those regular followers will know how much I love purple. We are sponsored this week by Meljen's designs and the DT were given some of their images to play with. I matched this lovely flower design with some of my fave Papermania heather capsule papers, which I also used for the punched flowers with added pearls. The lace is actually old as it is some my Mum gave me when she had a sort out of her materials, buttons etc. I didn't have any lavender narrow ribbon so coloured a piece of white ribbon with a Promarker (orchid) to thread through the lace. I used a Sizzx die for the leaves for a change and an MS corner punch. I hope you'll come and join the fun. You have 2 weeks to enter and if you don't have any old lace then I'm sure new lace will be fine.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Hi Marianne, Hope your feeling better soon I think its the change of season sometimes as the temperature drops.
I just love your card my favourite colours I adore Mauve and Lavender and Purple. I've done that before today coloured ribbon with my copic markers works a treat and you match everything perfectly. Love your image it's so so pretty. Take care and thanks so much for joining us this week at SSW and good luck.
