Lili of the Valley Challenge - Punch It!

Hello everyone! I  am still working on tons of stuff at home so seem to only be able to get to my Design Team obligations at the moment.  I hope to be back to normal in about 2 weeks.

My card today is for the new Lili of the Valley Challenge.  Our theme is "PUNCH IT".  We would like to see you use dies, and punches etc. on your cards.  I think I have gone a little overboard in that department today haha!

This super cute stamp is called "Times to Treasure" and can be purchased at the Lili of the Valley Shop.  I think this image may be my very favorite, even over the super sweet fairies.  It is just way too hard to have a favorite with LOTV. haha!

Anyhow, I am on a little pencil kick so I colored this one with Prisma Pencils and blended with Gamsol and a blending stump.  The GORGEOUS papers are from my very sweet blogging friend (thanks girl) and they are called Pion Designs.  This is just the front and back of 1 sheet. They are so pretty!

Here are some of the tools and embellies I used:

Tools:  Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Magnolia Doohickey Swirl, MS Frond Punch, Misc. Small butterfly punch

Embellies:  Pearls Sprays, Large Flat Gardenias, Ivory Cherry Blossoms, Gardenia, 10mm Open Rose, and Gypsophilia all from WILD ORCHID CRAFTS!!!

The little cute heart and forever sentiment are from LOTV and can be found HERE!

I hope you like my card today.  This is one super easy challenge, so I would love to see everyone join in with your LOTV stamps.  As usual you will see tons of inspiration from the Design Team!

Thank you for visiting me even though I am a little missing in action right now.  I sure do appreciate you all!

Hugs, Dena
