Can you believe that this is my first foray into Lili of the Valley Stamps?!  I know, totally shocking isn’t it.  Problem is, I think I’m hooked now!  Hhm, what’s that website address then???

I made this little card for a few challenges, list at the bottom as usual, but I really did kick myself, I was so busy colouring and cutting and embossing and sticking that I totally forgot to leave room for the lovely sentiment I had picked out, it’s going to have to go on the inside now, and it was so bloody perfect for the card, lol!

The card base is actually a lovely pink, not this odd reddish/orange colour.  The DP is all MME, free with a card magazine, and they were all in the scrap box too.  The image was water coloured with Marcy Uchida marker pens and some Fiskars glitter pens used for a little detail and shine; it was cut out with a Nestie and matted on to some bright pink bazzil card.  I used a glue pen around the embossed edge of the stamped panel and dipped it in Martha Stewart fine glitter.  The pink circle was embossed with a Crafts Concept embossing folder, and that was stuck to a scalloped circle from more MME paper.  The little butterflies are cut from a DCWV Christmas Glitter Paper that I’d previously used to die cut out a Memory Box Christmas Tree die, the butterfly die is also Memory Box.

The bow was made on the Bow Easy with some organza ribbon that was in a candy win, a few pearls from Michaels were dotted around and a bit of doodling on the paper finished it off.  Just wish I could have gotten that sentiment on the front!  It says “Make A Wish” in beautiful swirly letters!
