In the color of lavender

Hi, Janja here!

Stunning scent of Mediterranean bush is expanding far and wide. Tiny flowers with its violet blue color catches the eye. Lavender is fully blooming.
I tried to catch some of its color and romance on a birthday card.
Let's see how it is made.

For the card we need:
- white card base: 5.3 x 5.3" (13,5 x 13,5 cm)
- patterned paper: two sheets in size of - 5.24 x 5.24" (13,3 x 13,3 cm) and four sheets in size of - 5 x 5" (12,7 x 12,7 cm)
- white and violet cardstock
- ribbon

We prepare two cutouts from a white cardstock with the die oval doily & frame. Also cut out two oval holes in a patterned paper with the die in which we will later insert white ovals.

From a white cardstock cut out birds with the die bird trio and 4 lace borders with the die fancy floral lace border.
For more contrast cut birds also from violet cardstock and the basic of two flowers. The upper part of the flowers and leaves is cut out from a white cardstock with the dies: doodle flowers set 1 , doodle flowers set 2, and leaves & stems.

Glue patterned papers with double-sided adhesive tape between themselves and insert white ovals in oval holes. On a card base we attach a ribbon.

Assemble the card.

Look on a spread card with a space for greetings and an inscription happy birthday.

I would like to remind you on our challenge #4 - greenery
You still have time to share your projects with us.

I hope you have been inspired by my card today.

this is a beautiful card-love how you used the Doodle Flowers die to compliment the Birds-my neighbor just sent me a large cutting of lavender from her bush-the fragrance is wonderful
