Lili of the Valley Challenge - Easel card

It's Lili of the Valley Challenge time again, and this fortnight the challenge is to make an Easel card, one of my favourite types of card to make.

I have used another of the adorable Thomas the Cat stamps from Lili of the Valley – these go on sale on the 10th March.  I’m definitely in a peach mood, I’ve gone for this colour scheme again and last night made yet another peach and green card lol.

I just love this little guy and his little mouse pal.  I’ve coloured the image with Copics and applied stickles to the bubbles (not showing up very well in the photo sadly).  The flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts (the lace is on straight – it’s my wonky photography)  The swirls in the corner are from a set of 4 Cuttlebug dies – called Vintage which I got from Cutting Edge Crafts here.

The sentiment is from a set of 3 stamp sets that I got from QVC last week – it’s the Paula Pasqual All Occasions Sentiments and I LOVE them, best £11 odd I have spent in a long time lol.  They are sold out but are available on waitlist.

The paper is very old K&Co paper and this was just a scrap piece I had left so no name, sorry.


Thanks for stopping by,
