Lili of the Valley challenge

Thursday already, why does the time whizz by when it’s supposed to be dragging???  So it’s Lili of the Valley challenge day today and Dena has done us an amazing sketch.  This challenge is going to run for 3 weeks to give the DT a well deserved break.  So our next challenge is 30th December.

This card was thrown together, literally.  I had scraps of Pink Petticoat paper lying on my desk from another project.  The scraps fitted the sketch perfectly thankfully.  Then when I was moving things around I found a box that I take to shows for demonstrating and in there was a whole pile of coloured images.  Managed to find one that had blue in the colour scheme so I fiddled with Prismacolor pencils to dull the brightness of the blue down to tie in with the paper.

The only things that were done especially for the card was the snowflakes lol, even the sentiment had been die cut ready to go.  How’s that for a card in under 10 minutes lol.  The snowflakes are large – Whimsy Stamps Winter’s Jewel 1 die and small – Martha Stewart punch.  The spacers are from Ebay.  I have several shops that I buy them from on there so if you want the links email me for them.
