LOTV Guest Designer - Wonderful Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone and Happy TGIF! I like to share some news with you today! For the month of March I am a guest designer at Lili of the Valley. Sooo exciting! What a surprise when I received the email from the wonderful Anne from LOTV asking me if I would be interested in a GD position for the month of March. And of course I said yes *smile*  it's my honor and pleasure! Thank you for  having me!

I also want to say thanks to the lovely Dena. It's due to her post on Facebook where she mentioned me so Anne found the way onto my blog! :) My GD projects will be posted on the LOTV's Ideas to Inspire blog.

There is also still time to join LOTV's 9th birthday celebration. Create a birthday card and enter to win some yummy stamps and having the chance of being selected as a GD ! For all the details please visit the LOTV blog HERE

Ok now onto my first GD project. I used the super cute "Flower Arranging" stamp from the newest release:

The adorable image was colored with my Copic's (for list of colors used, please scroll down). I also used one of the 'Everyday Grungy Messages'. One of my favorite sentiment sets, as they are so super versatile! Well this image just screamed for bright and vernal colors so I chose the DP from Bo Bunny's 'Alora' collection. My flowers are from WOC and Prima. The large butterfly is a Cheery Lynne die and the small ones are die cut with a Memory Box die.

A closer look onto the image. I also added some Glossy Accents to the vase to make it look like glass and for a 3D effect. You can see that a bit better on the following picture here:

Copic's used:
R00, R21, R24, R27, R29 - E70 E71, E74, E79
C00, C1, C3 - B000, B0000 - YG11, YG13, YG17 - T0, T1, T3

The inside was decorated with the same DP to complement the outside of the card.

This card has been sold, thanks so much!

Thank you for visiting me today and have a good day all!
