Lovely Lilac: Love it or leave it??

It has been debated recently the lovliness of Lovely Lilac. I've always liked this color and have often wished for more purples in the SU color palette. Due to lighting conditions this card appears to be more like Brilliant Blue, but it is actually Lovely Lilac and I like it even better in person.

The colors Lovely Lilac, Summer Sun and Going Gray are a suggested color challenge posted on SCS on Tuesday so I had to go back and try it to show my support. The only thing I wish I would've done differently is scalloped the edge instead of used the spiral punch. I think the softness of a scallop would've worked better with the lemon images...

I also used Beate's Weekend sketch challenge for this, which I never do because most of my stampin' is done through the week when my house is quiet!

Finally, a new challenge website called Stamp Something posted their second challenge yesterday which was to make any type of Thank You project and link to their blog for a chance to win Blog Candy... who can pass that up? Anyway, for such a simple card I sure accomplished a lot.

The only item used that is not a Stampin' Up! product are the yellow brads. I didn't have any SU brand that color. These are by Making Memories. TFL!
