Flower card

I seem to be keeping my creative juices flowing at the moment by looking around at the various challenges set each week.  The one at caught my eye this week as it is for May flowers - which are hawthorns or lily of the valley - I thought this fitting to make a card for my Nan (albeit early as her birthday isn't for a few weeks yet) as her name is Lily.  So here is my entry:

Papers are Prima - Flights of Fancy as are the butterly, tag and chipboard letters, the Lily of the Valley image has been taken from the internet, printed onto Stampin Up paper and coloured in with Promarkers - Forest Green and Lush Green, I have used a nestability die to cut it out, a sizzix tag for the tag, a Viva My PaperWorld script stamp for the background and used Tea Dye and Tattered Rose distress inks, string and staples.

I have based the card on the sketch over at so I am entering the card into their challenge too.

Thanks for looking :)

This is so pretty Nicola, the lily of the valley is perfect and the addition of the butterfly just pulls it all together so well. I;m sure your nan will love it
