LOTV Challenge!

Hiya! I have a card for the new LOTV Challenge today.  We have a sketch by Donalda for you all to follow.

This was a great one Donalda, thanks!

I used the super cute image from the latest Lili of the Valley release called "Milly Me and My Dog".  I needed several papers that coordinated so I grabbed the K &Co. Watercolor Bouquet pad.  Love it!

I'm so pleased with the new smaller metal corners from Wild Orchid Crafts! They are such a great size for our cards.  I used several flowers also from Wild Orchid Crafts; Gardenia, Cherry Blossoms, Sweetheart Blossoms, and Aster Daisies also self adhesive rhinestones!

I will be entering the Papertake Weekly challenge with the theme "Anything Goes".

It's really hot here and still no signs of rain.  We are even considering getting a pool. That seems to be the only way to cool off ! haha!  We'll see how that goes, I have an appointment with the pool man today.

Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog!  I hope you will consider joining in our challenge this week!

Hugs, Dena

Hi Dena,
This litle sweetie is adorable & I'm lurve-ing those papers big time! How cool to be getting a pool, that sounds fab. Of course, even if we had the space, we wouldn't get much use from one here!! Hope you're all well.
Big Hugs,
