Good morning everyone and I hope you have been having a lovely relaxing weekend with lots of time to craft. It's time for another challenge at Just Cute Bears. And this one is right up my street as this week we are asking you to use the colour Lilac. My favourite colour lol!

We are sponsored again by the lovely Kim at Cuddly Buddly. The prize this week is another lovely stamp. I think I could make good use of this stamp! If you pop over to Kim's online shop I'm sure you'll find something you want. As well as rubber stamps there are digi downloads of images and papers. I have used one of the download papers this week from the Patchwork of Papers purple collection. These papers are so gorgeous that I didn't know what to use first.

Anyway here is the stamp and wouldn't you love to win it? Well it's simple all you need to do is make a lilac card....easy!

So here's my card. This week I have made a very simple card. I had a bit of a look around for a sketch to use. But then my friend phoned and we were chatting for almost an hour!! Well by that time I really needed to get my card made so I could take a photo in daylight on Saturday. So I grabbed a few things and when I put them together roughly I thought that this layout was simple but maybe quite effective. What do you think? I think it shows off this cute Penny Black bear and these gorgeous roses from Wild Orchid Crafts quite well. I coloured the image with Promarkers as usual and cut it out with nesties. The sentiment and card candy are from Craftwork Cards. I had to colour the card candy with Promarker too as I had none the shade I wanted. The greenery was cut with a Nellie Snellen punch. I think the raffia lace came from Quixotic Paperie, another favourite online shop! I finished by adding some Glimmer Mist to the roses, not sure if you can see that though

I hope you can find time to visit my talented teamies' blogs to see what they have made. I know they have all made beautiful cards this week and we would all love it if you tell us what you think of our creations!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and as usual I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful projects. It's great to see how you interpret our challenge every week.
