Happy 4th of July!! I know it's a day late but the little town that my parents live in and where we always go for our 4th of July festivities is celebrating today since yesterday was Sunday. Isn't that great? I love that we didn't have to miss the parade and all the fun and that the town respects Sunday!! So, we are headed there this morning and will enjoy the heat, the parade and the picnic at my parent's!

It's also Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday and I have a pretty lilac card for you today.  I used Multi-Step Lilacs for this card and these are the smaller lilacs.  It's similar to another I had posted but I changed it up a bit and I really like the addition of the patterned paper with it! I stamped the lilacs as follows:

Dark Lilac:  Step 4 - Elegant Eggplant (SU!), Step 3 - Vintage Violet (SU!), Step 2 - Lovely Lavender (SU!), Step 1 - Lulu Lavender (Memento)
Light Lilac: Step 4 - Lovely Lavender, Step 3 - Lulu Lavender, Step 2 - Lulu Lavender (stamped off), Step 1 - Angel Pink (stamped off) (Memento)
Leaves:  Step 3 - New Leaf (Papertrey Ink), Step 2- Bamboo Leaves (Memento), Step 1 - New Sprout (Memento)
