Good morning bloggers, and thanks for visiting the Lili of the Valley blog today
We have some exciting news – todays post is our 1000th!!!
To celebrate, and to say thanks for all your support in making our blog so successful, we are going to randomly pick a couple of comments from those that are left on todays card and the 2 lucky winners will get a prize
Lou is our guest designer for April and you’ve loved her work so far. I’m sure that this card will be no exception so over to her;
With the sweet Bunny Cupcakes image I thought I would make a frame as the picnic scene looks like a photo and I have used Labels Two Nestabilities to make a double frame. The image has been coloured with VersaColor cubes and Marvy pens and I distressed the edges with Walnut Stain.
I have followed the theme with a die cut cupcake and used the designer paper to make the cupcakes case and paper pieced the little cupcakes too.
I put some glossy accents for the cherries and the icing on the big cupcake.
I love buttons so added a few of those too,a charm and the LOTV sentiment layered onto the fishtail banner die cut shape.
