I've Been a Busy Bee!

Good morning!
A new week has just started, sun is shining even if it's only 8.20 am and I'm ready for some other Challenge!
I don't like Mondays at all, mainly because it's the day I clean the house but it also means that everything goes back to its place after the weekend and this helps me when I have to start.
My daughter still at home, I let her sleep until late so I have some time to write a post.

Last week, I managed to assemble a card for one of my favorite Challenges: it took me more time to choose the papers and the overall look and assemble it than painting the digi.
I decided to go for a lilac card: I was looking through my stash of papers to find an idea when I came across these lilac papers. I had only little pieces but they were digital papers so... voilĂ  I printed some more!

First of all, here's the card:
The card was bought somewhere I don't remember many years ago while the plain and patterned papers (roses) are from Pink Petticoat. I can't remember where the dotted paper comes from.
I glued some matching paper flowers and embellished them with buttons. The digi is a freebie from Meljen's Designs and I colored it with watercolor pencils.

I'm entering this card in three Challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 87: they gave us the following sketch
And they have Meljen's Design as sponsor!

Then, I'm entering Papertake Weekly Challenge: the theme is "Anything Goes + flowers".

And finally, Daring Cardmakers which says Flowers For February - Violet and Primrose.

That's all for today, a few minutes to browse through my favorite stores and then...
