Lilly of the Valley

I knew when I saw this May Papertrey Ink set that it would soon be mine! This is one of my favorite flowers and I just love how peaceful and elegant it looks. On this card, I stamped the image on the blue cardstock and also on white cardstock. I cut out the flowers from the white cardstock and then adhered them over the blue cardstock after I had colored in the green. I used some clear Stickles on the flowers to help them show off :)

The flowers really don't take long at all to cut out, and as you can see, several of them are touching - so they get cut out together.

I trimmed the blue cardstock to fit on the kraft base and then punched along the white cardstock I had left over. I added the punched border and then stamped the sentiment. It didn't seem quite finished, so I added the blue pearls.

Thanks for taking a peek!
