Best Friends :-)

My lovely friend Jo (Boots Blog Spot) has just sent me this gorgeous Lili of the Valley stamp and I couldn't wait to ink it up :-) thanks Jo xx

The theme on the Lili of the Valley Challenge is Easel Cards so that's where I started :-) then to find a sketch ,,,,Jo has designed a gorgeous one over on the Friday Sketchers Challenge ,,, hmmm how a bout a colour scheme ,, Heather has picked a delicious colour combo on the Colour Create Challenge ,, Mint, Choc and Cream ,,,, yum !! :-)

This stamp is called Little Girl's Swing Time,, sooo cute :-) I coloured her with copics and inked the edges with shabby shutters distress ink. The papers are Bo Bunny and the gorgeous rose, satin ribbon and ribbon slider are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and didn't have the 'heart' to throw the confetti in the bin so used those too,,, so corny ,,, sorry :-)

I am also entering this into the following challenges

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ,,,,,, Anything Goes

One Stop Crafts Challenge ,,,Spots and Dots (spotty paper and her spotty dress) :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
