Lovely Lovely Lilacs

One of my favorite flowers in the world are Lilacs. When we first moved to our house in Connecticut 24 years ago there was a lilac tree (way too big to be a bush) outside my bedroom window, and in the early spring the lovely fragrance of fresh lilacs would fill my heart with happiness. I will forever love the smell of fresh lilacs because of that. Not to mention  their glorious purple color ...purple just makes me happy.

In light of this, no other floral design in the Technique Junkies stamp line this year has made me happier than this Lilac Background Stamp designed by JanTink from #mittenstatestamps (offered exclusively for Technique Junkies). Every time I color it, I think of my Lilacs...you can almost smell them, can't you?

I colored these stamped lilacs with Copic markers, then added the Best Wishes Sentiment from the Wreath Wishes Set. The white piece was edged with an Urban Graphite Glitter Marker, just to add a shimmering edge to the focal image piece.

Now all we have to do is wait for those Lilacs to bloom...just a few more weeks.

What a beautiful card. I love liliacs so much too. The smell is so beautiful. Al and I just went to Bath and Body to buy a candle and he picked out the liliac scent. It sure makes our apartment smell nice.
