Instructions: Cut white card base to 9 1/2 x 6" size, score and fold at 4 3/4". Stamp the small lilac spray in Veridian ink onto top right and bottom left corners of card. Sponge the edges of card base with Cactus Flower ink.

Cut 2 pieces of white cardstock to 3 1/2 x 3 1/2" size. Use from Classic Border set to diecut the plain wavy and stitched edge at a corner angle from square cardstock. Use the plain wavy border to diecut coordinating corners from a 6 x 6 " panel within the paper collection. Sponge the edges of the patterned corners with Cactus Flower ink. Cut narrow border strips and sponge with same ink. Layer narrow border strips onto patterned corners and trim off excess edges. Layer patterned corners onto larger coordinating corners and onto card as pictured.

Stamp the petals and 2 small sprays from HCPC-3816 Lush Lilac and umbrella from HCPC-3818 Sweet Lilac Scroll & Notes stamp set in Deep Purple ink onto white cardstock and diecut. Diecut the cage from white cardstock. Stamp the sentiment in Cactus Flower ink onto white cardstock and diecut with arrow die.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to sponge edges of 7 lilac petals with Veridian ink and Cactus Flower in the centers. For color variation, use a touch of Garden Patina on half of the petal centers. Use the Dove Blender over petals to increase color vibrance. Use Cactus Flower and Garden Patina on lilac sprays. Use Leaf Green and Emerald Green on leaves. Sponge edges of cage and arrow with Veridian ink.

Use the lilac shaping mold to shape petals or simply shape with shaping stylus. Shape the lilac sprays. Use dimensional adhesive to attach cage onto card. Attach arrow sentiment and remaining lilac spray and petals. Using the Dries Clear add a touch of Baby's Breath glitter over card as desired. Use the same glue to add itty bitty Lemon Chiffon prills to center of lilac petals.
