Lili of the Valley Challenge

Hello again!  We are freezing here in Texas.  OMG! This Arctic front we have is putting everyone in a tizzy.  Schools are closing, power is going out, etc.  We are so not used to the cold. haha!! It's great crafting weather though so that is a plus.

I'm back with a card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge! Our theme this week is "ROMANCE".  
I had to use this cute little Teddy Romeo from Lili of the Valley.  He is too precious isn't he?!!!  He comes with the sweet sentiment on my card.  Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid Crafts!! woo hoo!!!! That is ALWAYS a wonderful prize!! So be sure to join in.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Lili of the Valley - Teddy Romeo
Inks:  Copics
Paper:  Prima
Embellies:  Wild Orchid Craft 15mm Roses, Flatback pearls
Tools: Sm. Retro punch, MS Pine Branch Punch, Nellie Snellen Punch, EK Success Fleur de Lis Edge Punch

If you look real close at the scalloped nestie, you will see that I added the throw away pieces from the border punch that look kinda like fleur de lis.  I also added them in the corners.  No waste for me!! haha

I almost forgot about the challenges I am entering:

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today! Be sure to go and have a look at all the talented DT cards on the blog.

Hugs, Dena
