Lavender & Lace

Afternoon all
Well the weather seems a little better today... not much though as it's been thundering for the last 2 hours here, at least the rain has held off for a bit though.
I've managed to make 3 cards today but i can only show you 1 as 2 are for family occasions.
The card looks better in real life so to speak as the light here is not very good.
As you can see i have distressed the edges of my card and paper , stamped my gruffie bear with black stazon and coloured him with promarkers, added a few flowers, lace and butterflies and some stickles glitter to the Lavenders, hope you like it
Ooops looks like i spoke too soon it's now pouring with rain :(
