Celebrate

Hi and happy Thanksgiving!
The challenge for you on CCT is to use "lilac" on your cards/project. Gosh.. i was really all and about to just skip this week ... i have made this year so many lilac cards that i did not really had any idea what paper to use. By accident i saw this Basic Grey paper peeking out of my wicker basket and i thought.. mmhh.. that looks kind of like a firework exploding - so i used Tilda from the New Years Collection to hopefully make a "Silvester/New Years" card.
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda New Year 2008 Collection, Stampin up "celebrate"
Paper/CS: Stampin up, Basic Grey
Ink: Black Adirondack , "Going Grey" Stampin up
Embellishments: Debbies Die Cuts for the scrolls, Stampin up: silver hardware from the Hodgepodge kit, Tafetta grey, Hero Arts: Rhinestone stickers, the beautiful purple pearl breads were sent to me by Carole sometimes this year and i saved them .. i don't know for what lol but they are sooo pretty i love to hort things like that. Swarovski Chrystals
Coloring: Copic Sketch, white gel pen, Copic Airbrush System
