Sweet Smelling Lilacs

I have my scrapbook room nice and clean now! I donated a bunch of stuff to 2 girls at work for the Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts to make crafts. I am on a self imposed "no spending on crafts" freeze except for tomorrow! I am meeting my sister to shop at this quaint town in Indiana that has 2 great stamp stores! I created this card for 3 challenges.

House Mouse Challenge #65-Flower Power
The Cuttlebug Spot-Favorite Flower
Truly Scrumptous Sketch #31-Hidden Message

The Gruffie is colored with Copic markers. I ran the light purple panel using the flower Cuttlebug folder. The patterned paper is K&Co. I made the lilacs using heart and leaf punches. I hope they don't look like grapes! The tag pulls out with a Happy Birthday message. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow this is fab! I love the Gruffies images and the flowers you've made to match are fantastic! Thanks for joining in with the TS challenge!

    Love Beth xx

  2. Gorgeous card Julia, love that Gruffie (on my long, long, long wish list) and your interpretation of the sketch is fantastic, your lilac sprays are inspirational.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at TS.

  3. Julia, had to laugh, you sounded just like me last weekend, going to the Show in Ohio.

    Your card is so nice. Love the image of the little bear with the lilacs. And your little lilacs on the card are so cute, very creative.
