Iilies of the valley…

Here at Sugar Creek Hollow, challenge #84 is all about Easter~  I found a vintage image of lilies of the valley that just speaks to me of the fresh greens of spring and the renewal of life all around us.  With these thoughts in mind, I created this card…

I adore this fresh color combo and had such fun embellishing this lovely image.  I believe that it is copyright free and so I am happily sharing it with you…

For this card, I printed the image onto white card stock, 45% of the full size, then matted it with a sliver of green and then white…

A band of venice lace and an undulating ombre green ribbon trim run behind the image.  There are die cuts of lily of the valley sprigs, bits of faux fern and die cut leafy branches.  The triple looped bow is made from 1/4″ silk ribbon..a favorite for tying bows!…

On the right side, a loopy, flourish of white card stock adds some movement and lightness to the layout.  My favorite embellishment though is a gossamer butterfly!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join us for this challenge!

For some extra fun, I’m entering this card into these challenges;

 

Sending you blessings and ((hugs)),

  • This is so fresh and beautiful!! My Lily of the valley have just appeared in my garden … I adore them! Such a beautiful scent and your card certainly evokes that scent …

  • These are one of my favorite flowers, though sadly they don’t fare well in the Texas heat, so I’m thrilled that you’ve shared them in this fashion! The card is so lovely and springtime fresh, and that lov die cut is too sweet! I’ve never seen that die before! The bows are of course always delightful, and your remaining design details (fern fronds, flourish in the corner, lace behind it all) are always the perfect touch of class and elegance. This card’s getting pinned for future reference! (And thank you for sharing the image – definitely going to be using it in the future.)
