Lili of the Valley Birthday Card

Hi everyone! This is my 3rd week as Guest Designer for Lili of the Valley. I had little spare time these past few weeks and had to narrow down my work only to DT/GD commitments. In July it will be even worse as we plan some holiday trips bot hopefully should be back on track sometimes in August with a new thrilling Guest Designer spot I shall not reveal to you yet:)
Ok sweets, I have a simple card to show you today. There's a fabulous sketch by Donalda to follow this week at Lili of the Valley Challenge Blog and I really enjoyed playing with those layered panels:) My card was made for a very special friend of mine who celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago. She loves LOTV stamps; no, she's not a cardmaker, just that she always picks as favorite from my cards collection those with lilies on:).



Recipe:
Stamp: Lili of the Valley- Emma Presents and Coffee Break
Medium: Promarkers
DP; Echo Park- For the Record - digital
Embellies: WOC flowers, metal corners and metal flower (painted with silver paint), robbon from The Ribbon Girl
Dies: nesties (circle and scalloped circle), Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily 
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley- Calendars - love this!

I kept it simple in the inside. I wanted to use this gorgeous Coffee Break stamp because it so reminds me of my friend and I chatting- especially in the good old days:)


Some challenges for my card:
Penny's Paper-Crafty Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp - stitching
A Spoonful Of Sugar -  Sewing 
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes 
Kaboodle Doodles - Celebrations 
Stamps R Us - there was a little girl 
Paper Sundaes Stitching
2 Sisters - Birthdays 
Catch The Bug -   Anything Goes 
Ellephantastic -  July: Celebrations

    Thank you all for taking the time to come by; I really appreciate that. Don't forget to visit the Lili of the Valley challenge blog for more inspiration from the super talented DT ladies I have the honor to work with these past few weeks. Their work is amazing!
Look forward to see what you make with Donalda's sketch! It would be a pity to miss that:)

Hugs and take care,
