Lily Of The Valley Quick Card

Phew...Blogger is finally back up! WOW, it is funny how it can be missed!

Kitchen sink Stamps has this special edition Lily of the Valley stamp set that I have been wanting for a long time. Lily of the Valley happens to be my very favorite flower. I finally got a chance to order it and play. I was surprised to find that it is a 5 step stamp! I guess I should have read the description better, lol, but I was so excited to get it. I don't have 5 greens that would match for this image, so I used 4 and stamped off one of the steps.

I stamped on the Paper Temptress white diamond paper which allows the shimmer of the paper to show through the ink. I still need to practice getting the layers just right, but all in all, it still looks like a Lily of the Valley.

I was in a rush to get this card finished for a challenge that I wanted to enter and could not find paper to match, sniff. I purchased a pad of card maker paper from K & Co. that comes die cut and ready to fold. I really thought the swirls and pattern were pretty with the flowers.

To embellish it a bit and feel like I actually made the card, lol, I added pearls and ribbon. The flowers are adhered with dimensionals, which gives it a nice look, though it is hard to tell in the photos.

I kept the inside very simple with just another of the images and a sentiment stamp. It is a day late to post this due to Blogger being down (I was fortunate enough to get the link from my Splitcoast gallery in somehow, yeah) The challenge I am entering it into is:
