I Love You So Much! -Sketch Saturday Challenge #174 w/Lili Of The Valley Stamp!

If you're looking for the mid-week post for "Fairy Fun Fridays", please scroll down to the previous post!


I'm back for a second time today with another card to share...yes my mojo is officially back and hopefully will be non-stop!!

I meant to get this posted and linked up yesterday, but one of my boys had an eye appointment and then hubs decided to let me splurge a little at Michael's...and you know me and we didn't get home until really late!!

Anyways, I made a card for the sketch they have over at "Sketch Saturday"...I know I'm cutting it real close for this weeks deadline, so hopefully I get it in on time!! If not I still had fun with it anyways! It's been awhile since I was able to play along with their challenge and I almost forgot just how talented their team is with all the awesome inspiration! They even have a DT Call going on right now...I'm thinking about applying. Will have to talk it over with the hubs first!

Here's my card...

And the sketch...

The stamp I used is from "Lili of the Valley" called "Rosie Posy"...isn't she just darling?!! I actually got me a bunch of their stamps at the beginning of the year and I'm just now getting around to mounting them all! Mounting stamps is obviously not my favorite I'm hoping someday I will stay ahead of the game and actually stay current with new released stamps...but until then, they are still fun to play with and ink up new or old!!

I really like how the distressing turned out on this one...I don't do distressing all that much, but I think it's starting to grow on me! But you know me I always got to have some sparkle!

All the flowers are from "Wild Orchard Crafts" of course and so are the transparent leaves, flat back pearls and the gold heart shaped crystal can probably tell I'm addicted to those things!!

The sentiment is from a gorgeous set of sentiments I got from "Papertrey Ink" called "Signature Greeting". If you haven't had the pleasure of working with their're missing out! I think they have the best style, assortment and intricately detailed sentiment stamps ever! Their prices are awesome and they stamp real nice and clean! And not only that but the sets all come with their own CD holder case with a way to keep them all organized too!

Onto the inside...

I'm starting to really like the way it looks with the image stamped on the inside message panel!!

I think I will continue with this way of doing the inside!
