I'm really not a peaches girl!!

Hi Everyone,

Well I finally got my Lili of the Valley card finished after the first 3 attempts made it to the bin! The challenge this week is peaches and cream and oh my was it a challenge!! I'm still not sure about the card but decided that I either post this one or nothing at all.

I love the LOTV image, but I really struggled with the background papers. I couldn't find anything peachy! This one is from the First Edition Spring Drop paper pad.I coloured the image with promarkers and then stamped the image a second  time and cut her out. I also added a bit of glitter to her wings.

I used a spellbinders edgeability die and a Joy!crafts die for the flowers. I didn't have any peach card candi for the centre of the flowers so I used white ones and coloured them with promarkers. The Joy crafts flower die seams to be making it onto most of my cards but I've just ordered lots of paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts so I'll be able to have a play when they arrive!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Have a fab week.
