Stamping for the Weekend #43 - A Recipe

Hi girls. Great to have you visiting again. I hope all is well with you and your family. After all my moaning about the weather we actually had some sun yesterday - it must have lasted for an hour then it clouded over again. I hope all you mums with lids on holiday from school are getting better weather than this so that the kids can at least get outside without getting soaked.
Anyway on to my card for todays challenge which is Stampin for the Weekend where we were given a recipe of 3 Papers, 2 Flowers, 1 Ribbon plus gems or charms. Actually I used the sketch from the Just Magnolia challenge but forgot I had to use a Magnolia image. I have a good excuse for this lapse. I have longed for this Lili of the Valley image and have yet to get it but I had a visit yesterday from Alison one of my local cardmaking friends. She has been making cards for a while but never got into using stamps until we started to get together once a week. Now she is spending money on stamps as though it had gone out of fashion. Anyway she knew I didn't have this little beauty and gave me a loan of the stamps to do some for myself. The stamp is called "New Hat" and is coloured using a mixture of my Polychromos Pencils and Copics. The papers are all from the Craft's House Tutti Frutti Paper Pad. The embellishments are all from my stash.
I hope you can find a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think of this card. I do so value your opinions.
I hope you have a great day and enjoy everything you do. Stay safe.
Hugs,

  5. Well we are not getting much sun here on the east coast either, mainly overcast with showers on and off although today we haven't had any rain so maybe it is changing.
    Love the card with this dear little image, such a sweetie. I don't have any Lili stamps but the more I see of them the more I fancy some. Lovely papers and a beautiful border punch.
