Bears and Butterflies

Hello everyone,

I received my Lili of the Valley stamps last week and this is my first card I created with one of my favorite images. For my fellow South African card makers paying a visit to Lili of the Valley online shop  is worthwhile  – their stamps are beautiful and the service excellent.  I also found three new card challenge blogs Stamp with fun, Stamp Something and For Fun Challenges , decided to join and added their blinkies to my blog.  So here is my card for the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley Challenge #53 – Sketch by Bev

Stamp with Fun #59 – Streifen/Stripes

For Fun Challenges – Use a Stamp

Stamp Something – Celebrate Something

I used the following:

  • White and orange cardstock
  • Making Memories scrapbook paper “Stripe Pitter Patter Oliver”
  • Lili of the Valley stamp S115 “Bear and Butterflies”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Pop-up Butterflies”
  • Sentiment stamp – freebie from Papercraft Inspirations magazine
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Ovals”
  • Pearls
  • Paper hydrangea flowers
  • Perfect Pearls for colouring
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Faded jeans”

Thanks for visiting my blog and please leave a comment so that I can come visiting yours. I would love to see your card.

Greetings from South Africa,
