Allsorts challenge week 424 - Lavender and Lace

Here we are another Saturday has crept upon us and this weeks theme has been chosen by the very, very talented Brenda and she wants to see Lavender and Lace on your creations.
We have two lovely prizes for you this week.

This lovely stamp set from KaiserCraft

Also this lovely die set from Sizzex

Here is my card

 I have used a Penny Black image from the Botanical Garden collection.
I have coloured the image with Copics version of Lavender (the darker shade) and Promarkers version of Lavender is the lighter shade.  
Old SU DP. 
Computer generated sentiment.
Lace that was white but coloured with the two pens to match.
The base backing card was white and I coloured round the edge to match the Copics version, I also did that with the banner and the border round the image as I did not have any card stock that really matched the colours of the image.
I do this quite often to be honest.
Thank You.
