Best Friends ~ Lili of the Valley

Good Afternoon!

I hope your weather is as lovely as ours is here.
We've had sunshine all day :)

I've had a lovely morning shopping for fabric and got a few wee bargains too!
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my quilt yesterday :)
Clare if you'd like some help,  get in touch ~ sarahmcards@hotmail.com.

My card today is using papers and a stamp that I've had for ages
and I'd like to enter it in Lisa's (Wishcraft) Waste not Wednesday challenge.

 The papers are Laura Ashley and the image is from Lili of the Valley.
The lace and button I've had for ages too.
The flowers and leaves are cut out with the Silhouette.
After cutting the flowers, I crumpled them up, then opened them out and layered them.
Then sponged ink around the edges and added a pearl to the centre.

The sentiment is also by Lili of the Valley,
stamped using SU Elegant Eggplant marker and then layered on bazzill card.
I sponged the edges of the papers with Antique Linen distress ink.


Thank you for visiting again today :)
I'll be round tonight to catch up on some overdue commenting.....
'See you soon'
Sarah xx
