Growing Love

I love these little Lily of the Valley images!  Isn't that the cutest couple?  (by this, I'm referring to the image, lol.)  I love the little clothes and the scenes these stamps come in.   I had to surf the web a little to find some pictures with vintage colors and try to incorporate those into my copic colors for this image.  Some of these colors, like the olives, I have never used before.  So this was fun and challenging at the same time.  I am entering this in a few challenges I found.

1. Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - Ribbons and Bows.  This seam binding ribbon turned out to be the exact color I needed.  It was a gift from my Splitcoast Friend Linda, AKA Morningsun47.  I'm also going to enter into the Lili's guest designer contest.  Crossing my fingers.

2. Glitz April Blog Challenge - Spring is in the air.  This image is definitely Spring, it's called Growing Love and I've added a few Spring time roses.   The paper I used is Glitz - pretty in pink. 

3. Bloggers Challenge Friday - To Die For - using your dies.  I used my MFT's roses die-namics and also my new Spellbinders - bitty blossoms (center/main flower). I also used MFT's doily die. 

4. Fashionista Challenge - Anything goes for girls.  Well, girls love vintage paper, being in love, and pretty flowers, beautiful ribbon, so I think this qualifies.

5. MFTWSC4 - I used the sketch from My Favorite Things.  I am still catching up on last years sketches I missed out on.
