Love You Mum

This one's all out Lili of the Valley, as I've used a LOTV stamp and LOTV papers, these ones are Forever Yours, a beautiful stack bedecked with roses.
 I made a 6x6 gatefold card on Hougie board and covered all the panels with patterned paper, adding a circular panel to the inside for the message to be written on, I also used a Martha Stewart border punch to make lacy strips to stick to the front panels to add some interest.
I've coloured the super cute stamped image with my trusty Promarkers and added a hint of Glamour Dust to the fairy's wings for some magical sparkle.  The sentiment stamp is from Hobby Craft, I stamped it in Fired Brick Distress Ink, I think the slightly patchy look you get with DIs goes rather well with the grungy style of this stamp.
I made the flowers with  Woodware and Nellie Snellen punches, using micro beads in the centres, the hearts were also made with a Woodware punch.  To finish off, a added a double decker bow of satin ribbon and baker's twine, and some tiny gems.
