Lillies are my all time favourite flower - I had them in my wedding bouquet - so when Janey
created this image - I knew I had to use it. However, the card has turned out nothing like how it was supposed to - it was going to be C&S - but I wasnt liking it - so it seemed to progress to this and I'm really pleased with it:
The image has been coloured with promarkers and some little golden glitter spots added (after my mum had some lillies in a vase and I was having a good nosey at the colours of the petals). The papers are freebies from a magazine ages ago. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards and have used my new Memory Box die and added a little bit of bling.
Before I go, I also want to show my gardening notebook:
Now I must admit I'm not a very good gardener I tend to kill a lot of things, however Jane has inspired me as has the lovely Carol Klein after watching her in her recent gardening series so
I have taken a 30p notebook from Asda and given it a revamp. I printed Janeys fern image directly onto patterned paper, cut it out for around my title - then added papers, ribbons and lace from my stash. Last year in the garden I had loads of plants I wanted to swap around and now I've forgotten what I was going to do - doh!!! so hopefully I'll put the book to good use and remember what to do - must be my age.
Thanks for looking
