Flourishes--Winter Thaw...looking forward to spring!

I don't really have the flowers that BREAK through the snow...but at least I do have a spring flower that I always look forward to. We have 5 lilac bushes in our yard and we constantly have them on our dining table during the summer. It helps that my littlens love to pick things! :)
I also used to colors from the challenge as well.
Green, black, purple CS from SU
Copic markers
cuttlebug folder
ricrack from my local sewing shop
SU retired black organdy ribbon
Antique linen distress ink
No sentiment as I am unsure what I am going to use this for...or whom...but I promise I will not hord it as I am trying to do an anit hording thing as a new years res... no hording calories, fat, paper, food (overstocking...dont forsee a drought or grocery store collaspe coming...) and of course, the cards I make. I have a hard time giving them away...don't know why. mine mine mine. Guess I am just a bit selfish....or worried they will not treasure them as I do, or won't like them....which would be worse! Anyways....thanks for looking!

I absolutely LOVE lilacs. We moved recently from a home that had a whole row of lilac bushes and oh my... there is nothing like the scent! Thanks for playing with us gals over at Flourishes and thanks for sharing this beauty of a card!
