I am so happy that Elizabeth has asked me back as a Guest Designer and especially glad that it happens to be in May since Soft Pencil is one year old this month and I get to take part in their Birthday Celebration Blog Hop! Now you can't have a Birthday without presents......so each of us have the image that we used on our project up for grabs! You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog, but if not, please head back to the Soft Pencil blog to start the Birthday hop at the beginning.
For my card I used Lilly ~ I just love Elizabeth's darling girls, and Lilly is one of my favorites! I colored her with copics, added some shimmerz to her flower and then cut her with a flower shaped nestie. I drew a pink line to make a border and then added shimmerz to this outside border (as well as on the sentiment border) just to add some interest. The shimmerz doesn't show up real well in this photo, but if you look at the peek at the beginning of the post you can see it on the flower. I added some pearls to each of the scallops and then in the 4 corners as well as a pearl heart pin to the flower.
So, how would you like to win Lilly? All you need to do is leave me a comment by Sunday, May 8th at 8:00PM EST. All winners will be posted Monday on the Soft Pencil Blog.
Your next stop is Betty but be sure to leave a comment before you go!
