Ahhh....Lily of the Valley.........

Yes..........another one of my favorite flowers!!  I wanted to carry these at my wedding but since I got married in February, it was a little out of the question.  These flowers remind me of my grandmother. She use to pick little bouquets in the garden and bring them inside. They smell sooooo good!

I felt like I channeled a little Jill Foster for my card. I've been watching the Penny Black videos and some of her techniques are rubbing off on me!  I'm quite pleased with this card - especially the one corner I rolled up and added the pendant!   I really wanted to sew on the card, but after I glued everything down I was too afraid to mess it up!

I cut out every flower and popped them up. Here's an close up shot:

This is a beautiful Papertrey Ink set in case you want me to enable you!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Wow, wow, wow! How stunning, Maria! I absolutely adore that flower, and LOVE how you popped up each and every blossom! Gorgeous coloring and design, too. That rolled up corner with the charm is just beautiful. Love the subtle embossing on the bottom also.

Over the top in beauty!!
Fancy and wonderful cutting on all those flowers but it really makes them stand out so pretty.
Also love the corner and the charm!
Gorgeous card!

Stunning card! I love the text background and the dimension on the flowers.

I love Lili of the Valley. As a kid, we had a neighbor that always let me pick his flowers so that I could give them to my mom. Your card brings back good memories of both my sweet neighbor and my mom. Thank you. :)

We have lilies that we inherited when we moved to our house. The husband wants every year to mow them down and I fight him every year! I love their smell. Your card is beautiful. Great fussy cutting!
