Inky Impressions - Spots and Stripes & one for LOTV

Good afternoon!! Today I have 2 cards that I would like to share. One for Inky Impressions Spots & Stripes challenge and the other is Lili of the Valley's sketch challenge

I have used the super cute Joseph and Lynette's First Date which can be found HERE
My papers are Basic Grey 'Bittersweet', the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Pearls, pins and ribbon from my stash. 

Challenges - 
Flourishes - Three pattern papers
Top Tip Tuesday - Stitching
Cupcake Craft - I heart you - use hearts
Karens Doodles  - Animal Friends
Stamps R Us  - Love/Valentines


Lily of the Valley have a fabby sketch by Dawny to follow. I picked up all the cute girly stamps when I was in the NEC last November. My little one just loves this one as she wants to be a ballerina girl 'when she grows up', lol. 

I've coloured it with copic sketch markers and added loads of shine in the form of Star Dust stickles. 

The sentiment is made up from die cuts that came along with the papers, which are Papermania's Rose Garden. 

 I am also entering this into the challenge on One Stitch At A Time which is Make it Pretty and the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge which is Calling all Squares.

Hope you like!! Thanks for visiting
