I always remember as a child thinking these lilies which my mum still has in her garden were like the turbans they wore in the cartoon that was on , on a Saturday morning The Arabian Knights. I insisted that they were turban flowers as lilies just didn't seem an appropriate name for them, funny how the mind of a child works.
I still love the vivid orange colour it just seems somehow magical and when I was lucky enough to win some images from Stitchy bear stamps was so pleased this was in the Easter collab set.
I decided that I would make a simple one layer card and colour the image with sakura glaze pens the shine they give I think give this lily they magical effect I remember as a child. I decided it still looked a little flat and used this mesh design embossing pad from fiskars , reminds me of chicken wire and was so pleased with the effect. The sentiment is from a gardening set from the stampman and I think it fits the card perfectly.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Card Cupids -no patterned papers
Cupcake craft challenge- in the garden
Dream Valley-use old and new( first time I used this digi and the sakura pens and fiskars board I have had for at least a couple of years)
