This is a bigger card, I think it measured 5x6 1/2 but can't remember. I wanted some fancy framing for this :)  I didn't put a sentiment on it, sometimes it is just better left alone, it was a birthday card for my niece, I am also her godmother.  Now she is a mother of 3 boys.

Isn't that some lovely lace and pretty gem, I was gifted those from Sabrina.

Here is a close up of the stamp.

I just love the rustic of the pail but you can dress it up with a pretty frame and it looks great together.

Power Poppy -- Lavender stamp set colored w/ markers
Spellbinders -- Decorative Labels 28
Queen &co. --Irridescent gem

Still working on Christmas cards, how about you?

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, love hearing from you,

BEAUTIFUL! Of course it's my favorite color and OMG that lace is GORGEOUS! I would have had a hard time giving it up! LOL What a sweet treasure ... you're so kind!

Oh, Connie, this is beautiful, and I LOVE how you've colored this sweet bucket of lavender! And what a beautiful frame with the sweet lace from our dear Sabrina. And I love the gem too. Your niece is going to love it dearly. It's amazing how quickly time passes and our nieces grow up and have families of their own. I've been busy and not commented much. A busy time of year but one that we so love as we remember the birth of our Savior Jesus. Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
