Lily of the Valley


Well, the challenge said Lily of the Valley, so here's my card (I did have to check what they looked like first!) I made a stencil for the stems and inked them in with SUs Lucky Limeade. I added more colour to the corner to give the impression that they were growing in the garden. I punched out the little white flowers, shaped them with my scoring tool and added a dot of green promarker to the centres. Finally I used more Lucky Limeade for the mat and layering, added a border and found a sentiment that I think is just perfect for this card. I think it would make a nice card for someone who needs a bit of sympathy. Thanks to all at Make My Monday for inspiration to craft and for picking this card as one of their Top Three!
