My Sweet Lili - FS104

I was so happy to see that BevR is the featured stamper on Splitcoast today. I have long admired her work, and it gave me the perfect excuse to ink up on of my Sarah Kay images!

The stamp I used is My Sweet Lili , and Bev's card I decided to CASE is HERE . According to the rules, you have to change two things about the card that inspired you. You will see that I changed the colors, designer paper and parts of the layout.
The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I cut and embossed it with my petite oval Nestabilities. The designer paper is Basic Grey Bittersweet, and the raspberry velvet ric rac is May Arts.

My friend Tosha gave me the flower punches. Thanks girlfriend! They are two different Martha Stewart punches, both called Hydrangea. The centers in the flowers are pearls by Kaiser Craft. The Dew Drops were added to give a little balance to the card.

I still haven't heard from the winner of the Dreamy Treats. I'm going to give her until noon tomorrow to contact me. If I haven't heard from her by then I will choose another winner.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Michelle, you've clearly outdone yourself with this marvelous card. I adore what you've done with it, the lace punched strips and your watercoloring are all perfect. Those little layers of flowers add such sweetness.
