I decided to give this Lili of the Valley stamp it's first inking, I haven't had it long and I've been itching to use it.  It's been coloured with Promarkers, with a tiny bit Spectrum Noir pencil over the top in some areas, the edge of the topper has been inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and I then added some Glossy Accents to her sunglasses and a touch of Star Dust Stickles for a bit of fairy sparkle.
 The gorgeous papers are Lili of the Valley, Baskets and Bunnies, I've distressed all the edges with my Tim Holtz tool, and stuck them to a Craftwork Cards shaped blank.  The sentiment stamp I used is from Lili of the Valley too.
To embellish, I made a waterlily from Spellbinders die cuts, using a poinsettia die.  The lily pad is a heart shape that I scored, shaped and added a few drops of Glossy Accents too.  I also added some pink organza ribbon, some lace that I glittered with Star Dust Stickles, and some pink pearls.
