Lili of the Valley Christmas

I think that I am going through a bit of a Lili of the Valley phase at the moment - but they are so lovely, aren't they?  This is not one of my new ones but it is probably my favourite Christmas one of theirs.  I don't really send many Easter cards so I made a Christmas one instead - although Spring time has definitely influenced the colour scheme!

I'm having a problem printing any of my digis at the moment - printer is playing up!  So, that's another reason why I've been looking through my stamps again.  I'll buy some new ink cartridges later today and keep my fingers crossed that it will fix the dodgy printing!

I have coloured the image with pro markers and added a bit of Glamour dust glitter.  The papers are from a pad that was a magazine freebie - Vintage roses by Craft Work Cards.  The flowers are from Prima, I've used a Woodware Grass punch and the roses and buttons are from my stash.  I decided to be brave and stamp the greeting directly onto the card - after I'd made it all up.  Yes, I know that was quite foolish/brave of me but, it worked and no smudges (phew!).

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley - peach and green
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Stamp n doodle - girly
Woodware USA - Anything goes
Christmas Inspirations - Christmas scene
Crafty Hazelnut Christmas - Going round in circles

Pink and green is such a pretty colour combo. Sweet LOTV image and I love the added shimmer to her hat and coat.
