Lavinia Challenge - Blue, Lilac or Both

I missed the last two challenges over on the Lavinia Challenge blog, so I was determined this month to get something made. The challenge is use Blue, Lilac or Both, and I just happened to have a background made with Blue and Lilac (I made some Christmas cards using this colour background). I used the Creeping Vine, Felicity, Cobweb and Fern stamps and black versafine ink to stamp them. I'm hoping that I've given the feeling of dawn and Felicity sprinkling fairy dust onto the cobwebs.

I'm counting the days down now until the big day when my Daughter gets married on the 1st March. Tonight we are off out with the female family for a girly evening meal, then she's got her Hen Night next weekend with her friends and the bridesmaids. There seems to be a hundred and one things still left to do, but I'm sure that everything will go fine on the day.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
