Summer Congratulations

Tonight I’m sharing a summery card I made a few weeks ago for a gorgeous family with some special news.

CongratulationsThe main card colour is Strawberry Creme by Lime Tree Craft, picked up at a craft fair and repeated for the lacey square die, the punched border (Tonic Studios Daisy Border), and the tag die (Joy Crafts).

CongratulationsThe image is one of the fabulous newer Lili of the Valley stamps ‘Annabel Upside Down‘, such a fun stamp. I coloured her with my Promarkers and and made good use of the blender pen.






The yellow flowers are from various places, with a couple of leaf die-cuts behind and pearls to glam them up. I added liquid pearls to Annabel’s dungaree buttons and hair bows. Congratulations is embossed from a Crafts-Too embossing folder and inked with VersaMagic Pink Petunia. I’ve combined organza and satin for the ribbon embellishment.











Finally I die cut the tag twice, once with vellum to overlay, and underneath I stamped and embossed another LOTV sentiment. A few other additions completed my card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
