Ruffles, Lavender & Lace

Afternoon all!
Rumor on the street is Mr Blogger is not playing 
nice again so I hope he is being kind to you all!

It's another quick one today playing along with the
365 Cards challenge with Monday's word prompt ... 
Ruffles

I admit I had to take a second look at this one as I first read 
(T) RUFFLES!
lol ... so being first thought I new I had to add some choc in with this one!

I thought this would be a great card to play along in the Lavender and Lace challenge over at Incy Wincy as well and I wanted to try something new for the occasion.  My stash of 'purple' ribbon is fairly short as it is not a color of a huge abundance in my house so I decided to raid my sewing stash fabrics. 



Today was my first attempt at a gathered fabric ruffled flower, I was trying for the 'Prima' look ones but I liked it with a bit more 'omph' so I kept it that way.  For my first attempt I have to say not to bad but it is a little 'bulky' so for next time I shall space my layers out a little more so the center 'falls in more'.  Still rather pleased with it though so I can not complain to much :)

My camera for some strange reason has not given the purple its real color and I know it looks more blue but is it a soft purple :$

Thank you for dropping in on me.
