Lili of the Valley Challenge


Wow! I have really done good this week with posting huh? I never make that many cards! I can't promise it will be that way next week. haha!
My card for today was totally inspired by my friend, Claudia.  She made the most gorgeous, cheerful, colorful card the other day and I wanted to make one just as cheery.  I chose these deep shades of pink and bright blues to go with this very cute Lili of the Valley stamp called Birthday Fairy.  This card is for our new challenge at the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog where we have another wonderful sketch by Dawny for you to use.

Our prize is once again donated by Laila and Lisa  from Lili of the Valley  a very generous £10 voucher to spend on the Website.


Card Recipe:

Stamps:  LOTV - Birthday Fairy and Circle Sentiment
Inks:  Copics
Paper:  MME - Quite Contrary
Embellies:  Wild Orchid Crafts rhinestones, 10mm open roses, 30mm Wild Roses, the white flower I found randomly with my friend Andie at some dollar store.  The leaves are a MS pine branch punch. The large paper flower is a Prima flower.

I used rhinestones also on the baubles on her headband and on her wand.  Stardust stickles were used on her wings and the package.

Well, that's about it! I love bright colors!! They help Spring come faster you know!

Thank you for coming by my little blog today!  I hope you will check out the gorgeous work from the design team and join in our challenge!
Hugs,

Dena

Oooooh this is soooo cute!! Great colors!!
I wanted to join the LoTV challenge 'things with wings' but my new stamps didn't arrive yet. Hopefully they will come soon so I can join this challenge with the lovely sketch.
Ofcourse I have other LoTV stamps, but most of them are christmas stamps and I don't feel like making christmas cards at the moment LOL.
hugs, jolanda

I am waiting patiently for my LOTV stamps...I can hardly wait to play with them, especially after seeing what beautiful things you have done. You coloured this spring card so bright and cheery...I love the spring colours. What colours did you use for the pinks. I have tons of pinks but they just don't seem to be the right ones. I may need to make another purchase! I just love your choice of papers too!
