Lilies

My weekend started really well with a trip to the scrapbook store where I found many new crafting goodies....bought some and left plenty there. Two of the things I bought were a couple of punches to make a lily flower (not used on this card, of course). Maybe I'll get to use it soon.

This pretty, stamped lily is for the Friends of Speedy TV (FOSTV) challenge to use at least three punches. My lily image is from  Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company  Blessings set. I love it and it is fun to color. This challenge can be found at Home of Speedy TV.

My punches:
  • Martha Stewart Wildflowers border punch
  • Martha Stewart ribbon/bow punch
  • Fiskars Decorative Corner Lever Punch-circles 
The paper is Mark's Finest Paper, A Heinrich Company-Premium Heavy White and Florida Peach cardstock
I added 2 green pearls and a rhinestone on the bow.

I found a new challenge I want to enter: Always Crafting--Creative Mondays #2-Anything Goes
Also, The Crazy Challenge #107 is to use a punch or die. I used three punches that I listed above.
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #127-Your image must be or include a flower

Thanks for visiting...have a great week.

These lilies look pretty with all that punched lacy goodness. Hey, I'm guessing that's worth some dessert, working out with the punching you did. ;)
