Another lilac card

Hello sweet bloggers,
Today was a beautiful Chrtistmas concert in Zeenya's school and every minute of it was enjoyable even though I had to leave Aleeza behind with the helper.
I made this card last night with the same Penny Black stamp that I used on a card a couple of days ago (from ruin to restoration). This time I stamped the image on black card stock and coloured the flowers and leaves with metallic Derwent pencils. And then I went over with glitter glue on the flowers. 
This card was a quickie and I had plenty of fun making it while Aleeza coloured in her images. Finished it off with ribbon and buttons from stash. You may think the pink button looks out of place but trust me that there is some pink in the flowers.
  

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Wish you a happy Wednesday.

Love,
Monica

I don't think it looks out of place at all! Pink and purple go together anyway and I think your card is beautiful - as always! So lovely.
Glad the concert went well.

This card, as all of your others, is quite brilliant. I love the flowers on the black background. Your border punch is beautiful - gives the impression the flowers are in a cute little flower box in the window sill and it is one of the lovely shutters of the house. It's gorgeous. I just love your creativity, Monica! Your cards are always so lovely and so different - you're so talented! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us! Also Aleeza - how wonderful were those lovely ice cream cones; she's talented as well! ;-)
