Lili of the Valley Challenge

One more day till Friday – why is it I live for the weekends and they are over in a flash!  Not fair!  It’s Lili of the Valley Challenge day today and it’s a sketch.  I am so not happy with my card but this is the third attempt, the other two went in the bin.  I think it’s the colours of the papers, too insipid and not me.  The papers are DCWV, Nanna’s Nursery Baby Boy.  I have pretty much used up all the blues in the pad, maybe it’s the lilac – so not my colour!

I decided to use one of the XXL Frames from Go Kreate for the curved part of the sketch (it was easier than trying to draw a curve – how lazy).  The sweet image is Little Acorn and goes on sale on 9th March.

I used a Doo Hickey swirl die to sit the 15mm roses and 25mm wild roses.  The sentiment is from a Studio G set that I have had for ages.

  1. Spring is here, lovely pastel colours!! Great XXL frame too, why bother drawing if you have a perfect die to do it for you ;)?
    Have a great day Bev!

  44. Hello Bev, I can so identify with your colour problem - lilac is not my first choice either. Having said that, your card is very pretty and I do like the design paper on the top part. Elizabeth x

  45. I really like the design... maybe it needed a punchup of the gold color in the dp instead of the paler creamy yellow? I think your card is pretty, but I could see where you might think the top section a little washed out - from your work I've seen you tend towards stronger and bolder colors even when working in pastels. Then again, what do I know? I'm a newbie cardmaker. LOL Love checking my dashboard every night to see what new Bev creations there are to be seen! =)

  48. I really like this card and I love the colours, the only trouble is I don't associate this with being for a baby boy I think these colours more suit a girl lol but hey that's just me.
