Hello peeps, two post on consecutive days is a bit of a rarity for me nowadays, but the sun was shining and I got some decent photos of a batch of cards I've been waiting to take photos of for days, so thought I would share one.
I have used Ruth's A Passion for Stamps Stargazer Lily..............when I first went on her DT she asked if there were any flowers I particularly like, well I love all flowers as you know, but lilies have to be one of my favourites and a few days later Ruth had drawn this lovely image.
I had lilies for my wedding bouquet much to the horror of my elderly aunts......... in those days you most definitely did not have them for weddings. As we married in October they had to be sourced from France as they were out of season, now they are available year round as standard and our daughter had them for her bouquet when she married on the same Saturday in October as us.......not 'the' same Saturday of course, twenty odd years later.
I used a sheet of Bo Bunny DP to create the pleated rosette, which I mounted onto a doily, then used another smaller one to mat the flower onto.......these pretty little ones are available from Sarah at Pretty Little Ribbons, as are the pins and seam binding. I printed the lily out a second time onto the same DP, cut out and decoupaged. Two hearts using an MS punch and corners using Spellbinder Fleur de Lis.
Now this bit really is more than a rarity, I am going to enter my card into a challenge, it's almost a year since I did so as these dodgy eyes of mine have great difficulty dealing with all the links, but as I seem to have used several of Sarah's products I am going to give it a try and enter it for:

Have a good day everyone and as always, thank you so much for popping in, I really do appreciate your visits and kind words.
