Gift Wrapped

I have a birthday card to share today...featuring an old Lili of the Valley image called 'Gift Wrapped'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the fresh Spring colours of the papers, from the 'Pretty Please' pad by My Mind's Eye, which were a charity shop find. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.

Challenges for this card:


  1. It's a really sweet image and that paper was a great find, I remember having them many years ago and are very pretty, thanks so much for joining in with our 'Feminine' theme at Penny Black and More challenge.
