Lili of the Valley challenge

Another card with the papers from that gorgeous MME Jack and Jill range! I've followed the stunning sketch at Lili of the Valley challenge! Thanks for such a gorgeous sketch!!!

This is Rae with journal by Mo Manning! can't quite make up my mind if she looks deep in thought or if she's looking at the butterfly but either way it's a gorgeous image! I've coloured her with distress inks and inked around the edge lightly with spiced marmalade distress ink. I have mounted the image onto yellow glitter card from the Hobby House, it gives a really lovely soft sparkle to the card!

Instead of the two strips of the sketch I used a MS deep edge punch to create two strips of lacey detail. I've backed it with more of the glitter card so that you can see the punched design rather than the patterned paper which looked too busy! I've also replaced the two buttons of the sketch with my butterfly - hope this is OK to participate in the challenge! The flowers, flower buttons and gems are all from the Hobby House. Aren't those clear flower buttons gorgeous! The butterfly is the first one with my replacement MS butterfly punch (I suppose it had done rather a lot of butterflies before it broke).

The gorgeous gingham ribbon is from the Hobby House and I thought it brought out the red of the paper nicely.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Hope you enjoy your weekend! x
