Lavender Blue Dilly, Dilly

It's a beautiful, Autumnal morning here, with sunshine and a very blue sky, I hope its as nice where you are too.
As it's Friday, it's another Daring Cardmakers Day and today is the first Friday of the new month so we have an Elemental Inspiration Challenge this time.  
Here's my card
For October Leo has put together a little mood board for you and we hope you'll find plenty of inspiration to draw your three elements from.
Just pick at least 3 elements from the picture to use when making your card 

I chose the pastel stripes of the wall hanging, the lavender, and the Kraft card from the box or ribbon or washi tape
The pastel striped pattern was made using Gelatos, which I 'softened' with damp pieces of baby wipe
The pink dei-cut pot is also coloured with Gelatos
For the lavender I started by adding various purple, lilac and some aqua shades of ink to a piece of card.  I thought I had a lavender flower die, but it seems I don't, so instead I used a Delphinium die, then cut them down a bit.  The stems are from another flower die set - Lily of the Valley, I think.
The white circle and the scalloped Kraft circle are both from Spellbinders Nesties sets.
The sentiment was stamped in black ink and the whole panel was matted onto black card before adding to my white card blank

It would be great if you'd check out all the lovely cards the DT have made - honestly, it always surprises and delights me to see how our talented team respond to the challenges each week, they are so fab!  You can CLICK HERE to see what they've made this week
Well that's all from me today, except to show you the photo I took from my bedroom window this morning - just check out that blue sky!
