Flowers In Lilac

Hi all today I have a card to show you that I made at the request of my BIL I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
It is my sisters birthday at the beginning of June and my brother in law asked if I would make a card for him to give her.  I decided to go with a Lilac colour theme as that is one of her most favourite colours.  I have followed the sketch at Stamp and Sketch, the papers are Bearlymine all have been mounted onto silver mirri card.  The central image is an Elusive image stamp which I used to use a lot and felt it would be perfect for this card.  I stamped the image three times with Versafine Onyx Black then coloured with Copics.  I used one image as the base then cut the others up to layer the flowers I used silicone glue to pop them up.  I mounted added flower lace down the centre then a wide cream lace topped by ribbon across the centre.
I added some flowers, butterflies punched in mirri card then used my Pinflair Multi hand punch to punch out the little stars that I have used as gems, finally I added a computer generated sentiment. 
This last picture I took at an angle so you could see the layered flowers and leaves.

I have taken the advice of my blogging friend Shirley aka Nannieflash and treated myself to a curved keyboard which is attached to my laptop, I am trying to get used top the keys as some of them are in a different place but I am hoping that this will help the pain and swelling in my hands.  Thank you Shirley for the tip I don't know why I didn't think of it before, lol.
I hope to see you all later hugs to all.
