Lilacs in Jug

I have really got the bug doing these cards featuring lilacs, the papers are available here, I just love the shades of the papers, they have a vintage feel to them, I have added crackle rock candy to the jug to give it a cracked glaze effect, the background of the image has been spritzed with irridescent gold, I punched the flower out of one of the images of the sprays of lilac, to get a more detailed flower and then edged it with stardust stickles.



 lace as been added underneath the border as well as the sentiment, all of the edges of the papers has been torn and distressed with purple concord and then machine stitched to give it a more vintage feel. Diamantes are from Papermania Henbury lane .....they're nearly all gone and I've only just got them.
