First of my new LOTV stamps!

\Hi again

I've just finished making this card with one of  my new Lili of the Valley stamps called 'Me and my cat'.  I think the new stamps they've just brought out are absolutely fab, so expect to see other cards come through using lots of these stamps - I bought 7!!!!!!!  The background papers are a selection from the 'Nitwits' digital papers and are called 'Butterfly Kisses Too'. 

The flowers were made with a technique which is new to me, and was kindly shared by 'Lil Daffodil' (alias Fiona), check out her blog here.  Her work is GORGEOUS!!  Fiona doesn't take credit for the flower technique, but kindly shared the instructions from her first Magnolia magazine, which I stupidly missed out on, and of course you can't get them now for love or money - well, maybe about £20.00 on Ebay!!!

Leaves were cut with a Martha Stewart punch.  Pearls from The Hobby House.  The sentiment is a stamp from my well used Claire Curd sentiment set, and I glued on a couple of teeny weeny star crystals just to make it stand out a bit.

Hope you have time to leave me a comment
