Over at the Lili Of The Valley challenge blog this week we have a theme challenge for you. We want you to reflect one of the Four Seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter on your creations.


Lili of the Valley are offering a £10 voucher to be spent on the website this week, what a great chance to get your hands on the new images.

To be entered for the prize you must use a Lili of the Valley Stamp or Diecut Image on your creation.

Pop on over to the blog and see the DT's creations INCLUDING some sneak peeks of the NEW stamps that are being released on 19th August.

Right, onto my card. This is one of my favourite LOTV images, I love the way the little boy's boat is almost as big as him. The large circle is an old CD that I have recycled by colouring it with alchohol inks (stonewashed & stream). The panel behind the image (should have done it slightly bigger as you can hardly see it) has been embossed with swirls with a CB folder using blue pearl card. The image itself has been coloured with Promarkers and chalk in one of my favourite colour combinations of blue and lilac. I think this is a great combination for boys cards.
