Plant Kindness, Gather Love

I hadn't used this lovely Lili of the Valley stamp in a while, I came across it whilst rearranging my stamp drawers and it was crying out to be inked up!  I love the sentiment that came with the stamp, it's so true.
The colouring has, of course, been done with Promarkers and I went round the edges with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye.
The papers are Papermania Hot Diggedy Dog to which I've added some kraft and pink textured pearl cardstock, inking all the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink for a soft and shabby look.
The corner element was die cut with a much neglected die, I really must use it more as it's so pretty.  The flower was made from crinkle kraft paper using a Spellbinders die and a large corduroy brad, the flourish was made with the same Jeweled Flowers die set as the flower.  To finish off I added some lace, a ribbon, a bow, a hatpin, a resin flower and some assorted pearls.
