A Little Card With Love

Hi All,
 
Have you bought your Lili of the Valley new stamps. They were released yesterday and are so gorgeous.
 
This is a card from the stamps released a couple of weeks ago. I was so excited to get them, that I stamped them and left it a couple of days before I coloured them. I could not decide whether to use Distress Inks or Copics.
 
In the end I used Spectrum Noir and Copics.
 
The background is a piece of Vintage Collection Core'dinations card, run through my Joy machine in an embossing folder. I then used my sanding block on the embossed bits.The floral border is Memory Box Die, Fairytale Flower Border cut from Vintage Core'dinations.
 
 
The sentiment is a stamp that I have had for a while and cannot remember where it came from. I know it was with other stamps on a sheet! Gosh I hate getting old!!
 
 
The flower is also a Memory Box Die, Fabulous Phlox, which I cut from the same card as the floral border. I used a piece of Dry Foam to apply some white acrylic paint around the edges of the petals. The leaves come with the flower dies.
 
 
If you use my link at the top and go to LOTV, you must look at their Design Team's card samples. They are stunning.
 
Thanks for visiting my blog and have a good weekend.
 
Hugs,
 
Carol S.xx

Glad you like the new stamps Carol. Love the colour scheme you've chosen here and your colouring is divine! The sentiment is from the LOTV Watering Can stamp!
