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.

Digital Tuesday Challenge #112-Add Texture plus Pink Card

Hi all this week at Digital Tuesday we would like you to add some TEXTURE to your card, this can be wet or dry embossing, materials etc, but remember to include something digital on your project.
Our sponsor this week is 
The Stamping Boutique

and here is my DT card
I decided to use one of my Tilda stamps that has never been inked before, I have coloured her with Copics, I added a few clear gems to the bubbles on her surf board.  I also used a LOTV postcard stamp and a clear sentiment stamp.  The digi elements of my card are the blue base backing paper which looks like the waves of the sea and is from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop, also from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop is the beach scene which I reduced to a stamp size, coloured with Copics and mounted onto red card, I embossed the die cuts with my swiss dots folder, I added some other embellishments to make this look like a lovely sunny holiday scene, the paper in the centre that is the colour of sand is from Bearlymine. I used silicone glue to raise the postcard, Tilda and the sun in the top right hand corner. Finally I added some ribbon and a bow.
Here is a close up picture of Tilda.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

My second card I made for the the following challenges:
For my card I have used a Mo Manning image coloured with Copics, the papers are Bearlymine and have been mounted onto gold mirri card, I also added some flowers, pink bow, stamped sentiment and liquid pearls around the scalloped nestie frame, finally I added some silver glitter to the hair, dress and flower.

Well that is it from me today I hope that you like my cards and that you will come join us at Digital Tuesday this week.

Creative Inspirations Challenge #60

Hi all firstly can I apologise for my lack of commenting but my wrists and hands have not been good, I have treated myself to a Laptop stand which I hope will help while I am on the computer.

Our new Fortnightly challenge theme has been chosen by our lovely Suzi, which is 
No Cooking Cupcake Recipe
Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish

Here is my DT card which fortunately I made several days ago.
I decided to use Tilda and the Magnolia cake stamps, I also went for a pink and brown colour theme. I stamped Tilda and the cakes, coloured them with Copics and cut them out.
I used a mixture of papers, added lace, seam binding ribbon, flowers, I also used my Multi Cut Blossom Punch for the doily (if you like the look of this watch out for my followers candy in June), I also stamped and added a mini 'It's Your Day' sentiment and finally added some gems.

For an extra effect I added Glossy Accents to the icing on the cakes. 

I would also like to enter this one into the following challenges:

I hope that you have found a little inspiration in my card and please come join us at
