Card no. 112 - Lili of the Valley Christmas Cards

As promised, I've been working   on the benefit cards and absolutely enjoying my time in my craft room.  I made four cards (two and two - two blue and two pink) last weekend and I just adore how simple and easy they were to make. It took me only 2 1/2 hours, where other time it takes me daaaays - but my hubby took the kids and kept them occupied, so I could craft these up ... 

I used the super cute image from the Lili of the Valley's Christmas collection and some old paper from my stash.  The images were super easy to pick - I wanted to use LOTV one, because they are running a super awesome giveaway and THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY GOOOORGEOUS!

The Front View

I did a lot of sewing and a little gluing.  The blue ribbon is from Papertey Ink and the pink ribbon is from JoAnn. 

The Detail #1

I colored the images with ProMarkers, Copics and ShinHans - I love how I can blend them all together. The border is by Spellbinders and so is the little shape under it. 

The Detail #2

The rhinestones are by Me&My Big Ideas. I think you can tell I used A TON of Stickles (Stardust & Diamond) - just to add that little be-zaaaz 


I am entering these challenges:
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Sewing or Stitching
ABC Challenge - Anything Goes
CES CHallenge - Pretty Girls

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!
Hugs,
