Lili Of The Valley Birthday Card

Hello, I'm back with my third project as Guest Designer for Lili Of The Valley. This time I used a pre coloured image from one of their Art Pads

I love the LOTV Art Pads as they are perfect for me to use when I want to make cards - I either want to stamp and colour and then keep the images  to make a card later on or I want to play with paper, use scissors, glue and glitter to make cards. I make too much mess when I am making a card to colour in at the same time so the Art Pads mean I can simply pick my image, remove it from the pad and go!

I used:
Papers that were already out on my table left over from another project - there are benefits to not tidying up!!
Doo Hickeys tag die
Ranger Distress Ink (Walnut)
The sentiment was printed onto SafMat using Simon Script font

( I added stardust stickles direct to parts of the Art Pad image for extra girly sparkle)

Hello ...

A simple card made using papers from the Days Of The Week: Friday digital kit by Sugarplum Paperie, the label was also from the kit and the alphabet is Nicole's Quotable Alphabet (I love it because it's just like my favourite tiny wooden alphabet rubber stamps) and a freebie mason jar image found via Pinterest

The lace and twine are both from Ribbon Girl
