My first Lili of The Valley Challenge

Hello, Ive only just found the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog and I wanted to join in with this at it was a great sketch and it is open for 2 weeks!  Perfect for me as it gives me plenty of chance to join in!
This is the sketch but you will need to tilt your head so that your right ear touches your right shoulder!!  Whilst you practice that bit, I will load my card!

Et voila!
I first saw this image last year when my friend Jules sent me some printed images.  This little beauty was amongst them and I think it was love at first sight!  I just love this image as it reminds me of birthdays and Christmases with my daughters!  Each birthday and Christmas I would buy them a matching set of M&S bra & pants, you know what it's like, they loved them but didnt want to send that money on getting them so I did!
Ive only ever seen this image coloured in pastels so I wanted to see what it would look like in my favourite colours, black, white & red and Im happy with how it's turned out.
I followed the sketch in minute detail as the sentiment on the left is actually the 'Make a Wish' from the Clare Curd Signature Range bp!  That took a moment or three to position it properly!
Pop over and join in too!

The sun shone a little today but the temperature is definitely on the up so I have finally succumbed and removed my summer wear from the suitcase and it is now washed, dried and waiting to be ironed!

That image looks stunning in black and red. I have seen it before but, as you say, only in pastel shades. Stunning card! I love your fur babies too by the way!

What a fabulous card Keryn, I just love that image and its brilliant in those colours too! I love the LOTV blog, have many of their stamps and you don't have to use their stamps for the challenges either which is good too! Hope you've had a good day. Hugs, Claire x

Hi Keryn
you are well organised I have been saying the past 2 weeks must go up and bring down my summer clothes, and they are still in the loft, hate going up in there I usually bring down more than just clothes,
your card is just stunning love the colours, brilliant text, prefer it in the bold colours, isnt it nice to have a matching set.

I love this in red black and white - it makes the lingerie look more sassy!!! I've seen the image before and liked it - but probably wouldn't have done it as well as you.

LOTV is a great blog - great that you find it... I always forget to use a sketch to make cards but it makes so much sense as I either do them all the same or get stuck for what to do LOL

Great card - keep on posting em!!!

Great card(I love your colourway) and I am sure your daughters love their gift every year......I had to go out and spend money this morning as blogger wasn't playing nicely and wouldn't let me leave any messages. So a wee trip to the garden centre was needed.....quite happy now! Cheers Claire x
