New Lili of the Valley/Sketch and Stash


Right, well now I am using some goodies purchased at BSSS on Saturday, including this cute Lili of the Valley image and the Penny Black postcard stamp.  This was actually one of my 'happy' buys as I have been looking for this everywhere, but it's a discontinued stamp - and the Penny Black stall at the show had a few found in the deepest corner of their stock room!!  As you can see, I've used one of the flowers that I made over the weekend,  Bloom nestie for the image cut out and a Martha Stewart punch for the border.  The vellum leaves are from a set I bought from QVC back in the day (!!!!).  Background paper is BG Wisteria and I've used Promarkers for the image and Distress Inks for the postcard image and edges, and Silver stickles too.  The ribbon also has a silver edging that isn't really showing in the pic.  I'm entering this for the following challenges - only two tonight!
