LOTV challenge card

This is my card for this weeks Lili of the Valley sketch challenge.

Since my last post I've reached 1,000 hits on my blog. I was very happy to see my counter go over 1,000. I didn't think that was too bad as I only started blogging this year. Thanks to all my visitors!

Back to my card for today. For the challenge I chose to use another one of my new purchases from Ally Pally last week. The stamp is Thistledown Fairy by Lili of the Valley,

I stamped the whole fairy image twice using Memento ink pad. I also stamped the flowers a few times more as I wanted to use them for the background. I coloured in the fairy and flowers with ProMarkers. I added highlights with Sakura gold and glitter pens. I cut out one of the fairy image and a scalloped frame with Nestabilities. Where the image was cut off I cut out these sections from the second fairy image and attached them to the original fairy image.

I cut a large square of the dark green card. This was the same colour that I used for the scalloped frame. Onto this I mounted a square of white paper. I cut out more of the little flowers and attached these to the white square with double sided tape.

I added a strip of dark pink ribbon across the card and attached it behind the green square. I printed a greeting which I mounted on gold card and then onto the card.
