Lovely Lillies

I will be entering this little number in these challenges:

Simon Says Stamps 'Paper piercing/piecing'
Papertake Weekly 'Fancy a punch'
Daring Cardmakers 'Lily of the Valley or Hawthorn'

Now I must admit Lily of the Valley isn't something I would normally choose to use on a card, and it took a while to find an image that was 'me', but it's good to get out the comfort zone! Also really like the black and green together. The idea of the card is supposed to be a love/wedding theme, it could be either :)
I made the card blank by punching the corners of my card / paper. The image is from the internet and coloured with Pro Markers.

Look closely and you can see the paper piercing!

Core'dinations Black Magic card embossed with Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder
Lily image from internet
Chipboard heart (which I inked) and black chipboard label from stash
White label, die cut
Pink Petticoat Damask paper
'Adore' from Doodlebug Stick With It double sided stickers
Liquid Pearls


  1. Gorgeous card!! Those flowers are amazing and I love all of the little details you used. The paper piecing, the glitter on the title, the lovely embossed paper, gorgeous ribbon. You have it all! Thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog!

  4. Oh, That is really stunning Fran! I love the shape and the soft colours of your card. And emboss core'dination is working fantastic as a backround. Thanks for playing along with DCM this week.
