Lilac and Lemon

For the Lilac and Lemon challenge at Papertake. I paperpieced the bouquet and vase, using various printed papers, distressing the edges a bit with scattered straw.
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CG104 Bouquet in a Vase, CL307 Mini Messages

And here's my second attempt. This is a fun color combination, one I'll be using more often! I tried photographing this in all kinds of light, but the lilac is coming out periwinkle. I wonder why? Have never noticed this problem before.Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CG130 Butterflies, AR130 Handwritten Sentiments, S5213 Dots and Flourishes, yellow cardstock, various printed papers to piece the butterflies, black wire for antennae
