Milly cuddle time

I am entering this card I have made into three challenges
I Love ProMarkers blog challenge - Paper piercing
Mark's Finest Papers blog challenge - Use lace on your card
Lili of the Valley blog challenge - Thank you

The stamp I used on the card is Milly cuddle time by Lili of the Valley. I begun by stamping the cute image with black Memento ink pad. I coloured it in with ProMarkers. I cut out the image and mounted it onto panels of Kraft and green card. Around the edge of the panels I pierced small holes using a pokey tool.

I cut the flowers and swirl shapes using a Marianne Design Creatables cutting dies. I threaded lace through the slits in the flower's petals. I cut panels of green and patterned paper for the background. I used my Martha Stewart Lacy edge and corner punches to punch the lacy pattern. I mounted these panels, and the image, onto each other and also added a strip of lace.

I attached the die cut flower with a brad. I also added a brad to the top corner.
To finish the card I added a circle sentiment from Red Gingham Die-Cut Mixed Sentiments pack.
