Celebrating generations

I so love this wee lily of the valley stamp it just looks so cute and cuddly. I love the fact that its got ready made matting and layering and the stitching details and the stars are the perfect finish.

I coloured my image with promarkers and the stars with sakura gel pen after stamping with memento black ink on a die cut from kurate I think will have to check the spelling apologies if I've got it wrong.

I made this card for my parents who became great grandparents for the first time when Maddison came along earlier this year.

I used a white base card and kept the design simple by simply adding a base layer of pink gingham from birdhouse.I used a scrap of dry embossed white copy paper with dots vertically and crossed this with a strip embossed with flowers horizontally which I tied ribbon round it and added a hand tied bow before adding the die cut with the image.I finished it using peel-off wording and added this vertically for a change which I thought was quite effective.

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

Fantasy stampers-pretty pastels

Suzy Bee's -use ice cream shades

sugar and betty-anything goes

not just cards-always anything goes

paradise of stamps -anything goes
