Lili of the Valley DT card & Sweet Stampin Challenge

As soon as I saw the sketch on Sweet Stampin Challenge I had to get a card made. It’s just my kind of sketch (although I have flipped it to fit the bow in.

I have coloured Lili of the Valley’s Christmas Angel Praying with Copics and added Stardust Stickles to her wings, on the shadow and around the edges of the papers.

The colours used are:
Skin: E21, E01, E00, E000
Hair: E53, E51, E50
Dress: E93, R00, R000, W1
Wreath: G21, G20, E93
Wings:YR31
Shadow:W5, W3, W1, W00

Aren’t the papers just delish! They are Aimee Asher digi downloads, I am loving the PINK!! The Poinsettias and 15mm roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I coated the Poinsettias with Twinklets. The leaves are a L.Em punch that I have had for years. I never use it as it’s my most hated punch, it sticks and jams every time I use it. Took a screwdriver and hammer to it yesterday when it jammed lol. I think it still works.

The border has been punched with a Martha Stewart Layered Arches punch (I lurve this punch) and popped pearls in the centre of each loop. The 25mm organza ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Also, just thought I would let you know that I have stepped down from some Design Teams. I have a lot going on behind the scenes right now and didn’t feel it was fair of me to take a place on a design team that could be given to someone else that would be able to devote more time to the teams. It was not an easy decision and I cried buckets yesterday but know that right now it was something I had to do. I would like to say a huge thank you to Katharina from Whiff of Joy, Donalda from Whiff of Joy Challenge and Jenny from Create3Fun for giving me the opportunity to work with you all these past few years, I have loved every minute of it.

  50. This is so beautiful, Bev. I have those papers and forgot about them. I always forget to look at my digi papers - will have to have another browse through. This is such a cute image and you've coloured her so beautifully; love the whole composition of your card. And, I'm so sorry you feel you had to step down from some of your design teams - will miss your inspiration on WOJ and I'm sure the team will miss you too.
