Lavender and lace

Isn't Lavender and Lace the title of a film?   It starred Judi  Dench.
Must think on that.

This is for Lili's little fairies challenge.  Gave me a chance to ink up
another of my LOTV stamps.
Also to use some of my beautiful new lace that I bought last year and haven't used before.
Also the Grand Nestie that only arrived after Christmas.
It needs a bit of care cutting it out with my Big Shot as it doesn't
all come out in one go and you have to move it up.
Now I know that it looks as if Emma is walking uphill but she did not look so good
being set on the card straight.
This is going to be a 70th birthday card for a friend.  

The flower and the leaves were cut from other border lace and coloured with copics.
I originally thought the flower was too small but it does balance out.
Emma was coloured with my copics and the butterflies got the stickles treatment.
 I am entering this in:

Make it Monday- Where Anything goes 
4 Crafty Chicks-Summer in January

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

Oh just remembered the name of that film it was
"Ladies in Lavender"
Well I got the Lavender bit right.  One out of 2 isn't bad.
