Lili of the Valley DT

Well I never!  Two just because cards in a week, that’s got to be a record for me.  To be honest I have not been very well for a few weeks now and it’s been a struggle trying to keep up with my DT commitments.  Hopefully another session with the holistic therapist on Monday will help.  So last night it was either make a card because I wanted to or head off to bed (a bit early at 6 o’clock don’t you think). 
Soooo, as I am in a pink phase again out came the gingham paper from Craft Creations and whilst I was rummaging I unearthed this gorgeous rose paper that I have had for goodness knows how long!  I’m also in the easel card phase, and have used my favourite layout (again!!!)  – it’s all or nothing with me lol.

I am loving these sweet little fairies from Lili of the Valley, this one is called Bouquet.  I adore the innocence the artist has captured on her little face.  She’s been coloured with distress inks and Twinkling H2O’s.  I’ve added stickles to her wings (did the out of frame technique that Rach has a tutorial for on her blog).

Check those hand made leaves have made their appearance again lol.
Recipe:
Stamps: Fairies Bouquet and sentiment both from Lili of the Valley
Paper: Craft Creations Gingham, Crafty Bitz PA147 (that’s all the info that was on the roses paper)
Embellies: Wild Roses, 15mm Roses, 10mm Roses and Rose Buds all from Wild Orchid Crafts, 25mm ribbon from Craft Fairy, pearls from The Hobby House, Stickles Star Dust

Thanks for stopping by,
