Year of the Flowers - Violets

Year of the Flowers stamp set by Papertrey Ink, irish blessing by Clarity Stamps, Kraft Card and Copic Sketch Markers, a couple of pearls and a bit of love to bring it all together.
This was one of those cards that had sat on my desk uncoloured, I wanted something in soft shades but it kept tempting me to colour it in reds or lavender shades but i resisted and finally got it coloured

Truly gorgeous; love the shades you used! So soft & beautiful! I just ordered some PTI & it was sooo hard as I wanted everything since February -- sigh! Ended up not getting any Flowers of the Year, though this is my fav so far!
