Lili of the Valley challenge card

This is my card this fortnights Lili of the Valley Challenge blog The challenge was a sketch challenge.

I choose to use Lili of the Valley 'Fairies on tiptoe' stamp. She was stamped with Memento ink pad and coloured in with ProMarkers. I added highlights with gold Sakura pen and diamond Stickles. She was mounted into a panel of dark blue card. I cut a square scalloped background panel using Nestabilities.

On a square card blank I stamped lilac flower pattern. The flower stamp is from Stampin' Up 'Simply Said' stamp set. I embossed a panel of lilac card using Cuttlebug flower embossing folder. I mounted this onto a panel of dark blue card. To follow the challenge sketch I added a strip of ribbon across the embossed card. Onto this I attached a strip of gingham ribbon and a bow. The greeting is by Craftwork Cards.

To finish I added a flower. The flower was cut using Marianne Design Creatables Ribbon Flower three Die. This is a new craft item I have (thank you Auntie Ruth who sent it to me). I attached the flower to the card using a diamond brad.

I layered up the final card following the sketch.
