Fred She Said Lilly of the Valley

Good morning bloggers. I trust you all had a very Happy Easter. Today's card is made with the Lilly of the Valley Fred She Said Digi which can be found here. This flower evokes memories of my beloved Grandmother. She had Lilly of the Valley in her garden every spring. They are such a beautifully fragrant addition to your garden with these delicate little bell shaped flower.
I colored my image with pencils and blended the colors in the leaves and left the flower part of this digi white. I cut out my image and created some dimension by adding an extra stamen pop-dotted into the middle. I added crystal effects to the entire image and then put a touch of stickles on top of the flower. This picture shows you the effect achieved which adds a special effect.
Martha Stewart - Loopy Around the Page Punch, Deep Lattice Border Punch, Large and Small butterfly punch
Sizzx-Corner Die Cut
Spellbiners- Lattice Pendant Die Cut, Lattice Border Die Cut
Paper - K & Company
Embellishments - Crystal Effects, Pearls, Stickles, Rhinestines, Ribbon, Versa Magic Oasis Green Chalk Ink.
Envelope Kit - 6 x 6 from Priscilla Styles found here.

This is a picture of the inside of the card. The edges of the some of the papers were inked with chalk ink described in detail above in the recipe. I just enjoyed making this so much! My Grandmother would have loved this card! She also had white and purple lilacs every spring - so stayed too for something I have in mind for that!!! LOL Lilacs are another fragrant flower. We used to have a bouquet in the house for as long as they bloomed.

Thanks for stopping by today. I really appreciate it. If you have a moment, I would love for you to let me know what you think. It would really make my day.

Hi Carol, you left a lovely comment on my latest card on SCS, so I had a look at your gallery on SCS and was really impressed with your cards. So here I am, now following your blog. I just love what you've done with the cut outs and layers, very inspiring. I have some myself and as a newby not sure what to do with them, but you have answered my 'prayers'.
Many thanks
