Pink Lily

Hello Everyone

Another week has gone by. Where does the time go too.
At least the weather is slowly improving.
I was pleasantly surprised when found out I made the top three at Crafting with Dragonflies for a birthday card I made a couple of weeks ago you can see my creation here

For todays card I have used a stamp that I just adore. I purchased it a few years ago at a craft show, I don't know the make of it, but lilies are one of my favourite flowers.


 As spring has started I thought I would use pink for this card.
I stamped the Lily with Black Archival and heat embossed with clear powder.
I then used  my watercolour pencils to colour it in. I added a Wink of Stella in the clear in the centre of the flower to add touch of glitter. I am not sure if you can see it in the pictures.

 I cut the image with Sue Wilson's Classic Adorned die from her Noble range and then used the Ornate Pierce die cut in pink card.

 I finished the card with a ribbon and a flower made from the open Camellia flower from Sue Wilson and added a small clear dazzler which I coloured with a hint of pink with my promarkers.
I have entered this card in the following challenges:
crafting-with-friends challenge 16
