Lili of the Valley wedding card

Hi dear friends!
I'm so happy I could sit for an hour in my craft room today and have this Lili of the Valley card done. I promised myself I should ink at least once every stamp I have before ordering new ones. But it seems that I keep breaking my promise since I have already ordered some of the stamps from the new LOTV animal collection. Can't wait for them to arrive!
Today I'm going to show you a wedding card using 2 LOTV stamps I have never inked before; the Mr and Mrs and a circle stamp from For you circular stamps.

Stamp; Lily of the Valley - Mr and Mrs
Medium;  Promarkers
Paper; Blushbutter- digital
Embellishments; Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon, paper doily, feather from stash
Misc; Magnolia die, lacey circle nesties, MD circle die, pearls from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, glitter,  ice sparkles.

Challenges for this card;
Lili of the Valley - Say It With Flowers
Delicious Doodles - use green
Southern Girls - Use Flowers
Stamp Insanity - Anything Goes, with a twist - A pop of Green or St Patty's day

Now, I also have been honored with a new blog award, this time coming from the Netherlands from Marianne. I just love this lovely lady's work. She's extremely talented and her cards always have a terrific design. I'm really touched by this sign of appreciation. Thank you, dear Marianne! Please go and check her gorgeous cards, she also has a yummy candy going on, so why not take a chance;))

This is the award;

It seems that I also have to fulfill a few tasks to 'deserve' the prize. Well, that's simple. Without too much thinking, I'll just put down whatever comes first to my mind;
1. I'm 31, married for nearly 8 years and we have a 1 year and 8 months old son, Victor
2. Love my family more than anything else.
3.I have a degree in Philology and used to be a French teacher
4. Love reading and traveling 
5. I used to practice speleology during my faculty years
6. My favorite color is red
7. I only started cardmaking  during my pregnancy when I was put to bed rest, so about 2 years ago

Then, I am supposed to pass this to 8 more people. I chose the followingladies who make such gorgeous inspirational cards; Joe-Anne, Debora, Alison, Sandy, Lynne, Janet ,Cami, Sharon.  
Feel free to pay them a visit! You won't be disappointed!

Choosing among so many talented ladies was a difficult task. Of course everybody deserves blog awards. The simple act of starting a blog is in my opinion an act of courage. It's not an easy task to start sharing insights from yourself with complete strangers, at least in the beginning.

Hugs to you and have a great Sunday evening!

Iulia, Thank you so much for your kind words. It makes me blush.
Your card is so pretty. I love the combination of colors. Your flowers are gorgeous the way you put them round the circle.
I learned from your rule for yourself: no new stamps before I colored every stamp I have.
Love and hugs: Marianne
