Double D Challenge - Lavender and Lace

Dear Ones~
Today's offering was made for the Double D Anniversary Challenge, and this time it's Lavender and Lace. Just look at the beautiful inspirational tiles that they have provided for us.
Here is my card:
I have recently acquired the new Altenew stamp set Garden Hydrangea, and this is the first time I have gotten it inky. There is a learning curve because it's a 3-step stamp, and I had to use my MISTI to make sure and get all the stamps lined up properly. But I think it's a pretty stamp and I am enjoying it very much.

Here are the Ingredients:
GHD Lovely Lavender and White Card Stock
GKD Persian Garden Patterned Paper
Sizzix Mixed Media 2 Die by Tim Holtz
Altenew Garden Hydrangea Stamp Set
GKD Wild Wisteria & Wild Lilac Ink
SU Elegant Eggplant Ink
SU Wild Wasabi, Old Olive & Always Artichoke Ink
SU Papillion Potpouri Stamp for Butterflies
White Ranger Enamel Accents

It's turning warmer here - in the 30's. Maybe Spring is around the corner. We have a long way to go, but we are on the other end of winter. Hope you are having a great weekend, I know I am. Thanks for stopping by, I always adore your comments.
