Lili of the Valley, Thinking of You


Today I would like to share with you a card I made for my friend who is poorly in hospital at the moment. I wanted something to brighten up her day, and I know how much she loves flowers, so this is the card I made for her.
The photo is not the best because I took it at night. The paper is from the First Edition Pad, Summer Breeze. The card is a scalloped edge 8x6" card. The message is by Lili of the Valley, it is the Friendship Recipe Stamp. It was stamped onto a piece of card which had been die cut with a Marianne Die and then gently inked with distress inks. This was then matted onto some shimmer card (it doesn't show up very well) die cut with Nesties Labels 17. Yes I know I went overboard with the flowers, but my friend is worth it! So the Loreal people say :) The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as are the leaves.

I would like to enter this card into this weeks Lili of the Valley Challenge, Anything but Christmas.

I really enjoyed this card, although I would rather have not had to make it.

Happy Crafting
