Lilac Wedding

Spring has sprung!  And so have the weeds in my garden!  We'd some lovely sunshine (between the showers) and I finally got out into my garden to tackle the worst of the weeds that are sprouting up like mad.  And there's plenty of slugs having a good munch there too ... yeuch (they give me the heebie-jeebies!!)

Wedding season is approaching and I've quite a few cards to get made, so you'll probably be seeing this LOTV image again, and again, and again!!  I really struggle with 'lovey dovey' cards, but quite like how this turned out.
Coloured with pencils, purple bits highlighted with some stickles and wee dots are pale lavender pearl drops.  My flower ribbon has been in my 'too nice to use' stash for a while, so thought it would be nice to use up on a wedding card.
