Sally-Ann's Lilly, Grab-A-Doodle-Do


Hi everyone, a card today for A spoon full of sugar where the challenge this week is 'Blooming Marvelous'. Sally-Ann at (Grab-a-doodle-do) has just released the gorgeous 'Lilly' on her download site, she's so cute and lovely I had to buy her immediately! I also decided to make another DL size card as it makes a change from the squares and I enjoyed making this size for yesterday's card, I've folded it as an upright concertina. I hadn't planned on spending quite so much time on it and as I ran out of tape runner glue right at the beginning I had to use lift and peel tape which always takes forever. It's a bit rough in some areas but as it took a while I'm uploading it!! The three gorgeous images of Lilly are marker coloured and mounted on various colours of Bazzil card with backgrounds of Basic Grey papers from the 'Two Scoops' collection. I cut nestabilities hearts from the papers and collaged these in the centre panel and on the front, also added punched and shaped flowers, stickles, half pearls, sticky ribbon, some doodling for stitching and little tabs rounded with a corner punch for the sentiments. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
