Allsorts Challenge card

Hi there !! Here is my card for the Allsorts Challenge this week. Week 80 !!!

The image I have used is by Lili ofthe Valley, papers are from Pink Petticoat and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The trimming is from Walmart. I cut the scalloped circle using my beloved Cricut from the Easter Cartridge !!! I had put it away as its not Easter but its now back out !!!! The leaves are a punch by Martha Stewart.

I sat with the image and papers on my desk for hours until I got something I was happy with !!

Lili of the valley Glitter and Glitz Challenge

Here is a Christmas card I made with a Lili of the Valley Die cut Image for their Glitter and Glitz Challenge this week. Check it out on their blog here !!

The paper is from Pink Petticoat. I just love their papers ! I used a Lili of the Valley stamp for the Christmas greeting ............. I had to get all three of their sets they are scrummy !!!

I loved the idea Bev used with the snowflake so I went to Micheals and got some, they are lovely and glittery !!! While I was there I found the lovely glittery leaves. They were in the Holiday section for making flower arrangements !! I found some great stuff in that bit !!!

The Poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used stickles to glitter them up !! The heart pins are from Wild Orchids too. I thought this would go to my Grandma hence adding the hearts.

Hope you like it !!

Anything Goes Challenge Lili of the Valley Challenge

Hi there all!!!
I made this card for Lili of the Valleys' anything Goes Challenge using a design called Sundays Child from Mo's Digital pencil.

I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the border and Scalloped oval nesties around the design. The leaves were cut from the cricut cartridge Storybook and the flowers were cut from the cricut cartridge sweet treats.

For the flowers I cut 4 layers, each of decreasing size. For the larger flower start at 2" and the smaller flower at 1 3/4". Decrease the size by 1/4" each layer !!! Place a brad in the middle of all four stacked layers and fasten !!! I curled the petals over a pencil to give dimension and then added stickles glitter for some pizzaz !!

Hope you like it !!!
