Inspired by Lilacs

I made this card after cutting our first lilacs to bring inside last week.

supplies: white and Mint cardstock, The Greetery Fleur Impressions, Shades of Purple and Green Meadow mini ink cubes, sentiment from Technique Tuesday (retired) Simply You, Altenew Watercolor Stripes stencil, Tiny Hearts sprinkles

I'd seen someone else use a striped background with these flowers, and decided on the lightest green in the mini ink set for some continuity.  It plays nicely with the mint cardstock.  The sentiment is one I love, probably 10 years old or more.  

Here's my inspiration......I used the portrait feature on my phone to take this picture in my kitchen where there isn't as much natural light as where I took my picture above, so the colors look a bit different, more intense.

These smell heavenly!  They are a transplant from my Dad's lilacs years and years ago, so very special to me.

How lovely Lin - both that vase of the precious lilacs, and the sweet card
