Delicate lilac card

Good morning! It's been a busy week and didn't get much time to post. I am hoping to catch up with a few bits today, so let's start with posting one of the cards I made recently.
For this order (a birthday card for an elderly lady), I wanted to give a delicate look, so I chose the beautiful Geranium from LittleClaire stamps. The light purple and lilac colours, together with the use of chalks in the background give a soft feel to the card.
I coloured the image with Letraset Promarkers; Manuscript Background stamp by Hero Arts, one of my favourite, stamped with Versamark and coloured with lilac chalk; Fiskars punch; oval Nestabilities; I believe the sentiment is from Docrafts.

My card enters:
Cute card Thursday - sketch 131
A spoon full of Sugar - Anything goes
Charisma cards - Anything goes
Tuesday Taggers - Anything goes
Aifactory - Anything goes
Have a fabulous weekend!
