Whiff of Joy - Lavender and Lace

I struggled with this card which is for the Whiff of Joy challenge this week, 'Lavender and Lace'. For some reason I find working with lavender/lilacs/purples difficult, but here is my effort. The image is coloured with Copics, papers and other bits are from the scraps box, so haven't a clue what they are I'm afraid! The lace is from Hobbycraft.
Thank you for visiting xx

The end result doesn't reflect your struggle with the colours, it is stunning, I love the way you have twisted the ribbon for the flower stem. Elaine
