Lili of the Valley - Say it with Flowers!

Hands up who got their brand new Lili of the Valley animal stamps yesterday???? There are 19 in this release and at only $4 (should be pound sign ... keyboard being silly) they are such excellent value. I can't wait to see what you all create with them. 

The theme this week on the LOTV challenge blog is ....

SAY IT WITH FLOWERS




I am loving experimenting with different colours and combinations of colours, especially ones that I do not usually use. I took my inspiration from these beautiful papers available from Tracy at Dies to Die For. They are by K & Co and are from the Julianne Speciality papers ..... complete with glitter (click pic for better look)


Another totally adorable stamp - Hello Cupcake .... I just love colouring these so much, I feel so lucky to be part of the Lili of the Valley family :o)

Copics

E000, 00, 11, YR 20, 23, Y28, 35, YG0000, 03, 11, 63, R20, RV11, 34, W1, 3, 5


Did you spot my Australian lace????? Well ok, it isn't Australian ..... I stuck it upside down by mistake so I thought I better make it match on the insert too. I am trying to convince myself there is no wrong or right way up for lace but of course we all know there really is ... isn't there? The lace and roses are available from Wild Orchid Crafts .... my favourite place on earth on buy my flowers from!


Just to prove never to throw your lush paper scraps away ..... managed to turn them into a matching piece for the reverse of my card .... it would be a sin even to throw this tiny amount in the bin!
