Lili of the Valley challenge

This is my entry for the Lili of the Valley challenge which I am entering for the first time after seeing Jacqui's gorgeous card this week. The challenge is to make a Christmas card for a child, so I decided I would make a non traditional pink card for one of my Neices, although I might keep it for my daughter now as I love how it turned out!

I used the gorgeous Sarah Kay stamp, I have coloured her with copics but I paper pieced her dress and the bow on her hat because this image just seems like some of it should be tartan to me LOL! I distressed the edges of the oval with tattered rose distress ink and also stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp around the edges in the same ink.

I have added a tulle bow and the snowflake charm is tied in with the bow using some silver jewellery wire.

I thought these fun shaped letters were perfect for a children's card, they are from Doodlebug and I have covered them in glitter glue. All the snowflakes are double layered, a pink one and a white glittered one, made with Woodware snowflake punch.

The tulle runs underneath the image and I have secured it at the bottom with a gem.

Hope you like it and thank you for looking! I apologise if I don't get round to you all today but I hurt my neck and back over a year ago and have struggled with it ever since but this morning when I turned over in bed my back did the most horrendous crunch (yikes). I think it is actually a crunch that has corrected whatever was out of place but as it has been out of place for so long it is now hurting rather a lot so I don't want to sit here too long and make it worse! x
