Lili of the Valley #53 & C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #51

Hi girls, thank you for taking time to call in. I appreciate your visit and I hope you find something to please the eye. I have enjoyed the last few days visiting some of my regular blogs. I had almost forgotten how inspiring your cards are and how much pleasure I got from seeing them each day.
I am entering this card into two challenges. Lili of the Valley gave us a fabulous sketch to follow and C.R.A.F.T. Challenge asked for a card with the theme og Celebrate/Birthday. I have have inked up LOTV's "Girls Story Time" and coloured it using my Copics. The papers are from My Mind's Eye's "Beloved" set and are "Beautiful Branches" and "Dearest Dots". The flowers are made using a new die set from Marianne Designs and I have used ribbon and stamens from my stash to complete them.
It took me a long time to do this card, I'm not able to sit for long and have to take breaks, but I really enjoyed doing it. I hope you like it and I would love to hear what you think. I know it takes time to leave a comment but if you can spare a moment I would really appreciate your views.
Take care and have a good day.
Hugs,

  14. Gorgeous card, great image and those flowers are beautiful. I love the way you have threaded the ribbon through the flowers and added the stamens to the centre. I know it is frustrating but you are doing the best thing in taking breaks from sitting too long.
