Bear, Butterflies and Roses

Hello Friends,
The theme of this week's challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty is one I'm sure all of you will love. I know I did! 


There, see, I knew you'd love it. Not only did I get to go wild with my equal favourite colour (the other is burgundy), I was also asked to use one of my Lili Of The Valley stamps. 
Our lovely sponsors this week are

I used LOTV's 'Thinking of You' , one of the 3 gorgeous ones that 
my dear friend, Pauline, in England sent me last Christmas.
To create the background, I sponged the edges with Versacube Petal Pink,
then scored it with my Scorpal.
A closer look at this cute little guy, which I coloured with Promarkers.
My flowers and buds are all roses, and all pink.
As usual, I have made the inside of my card to co-ordinate with the front.
All the tiny little butterflies are the negatives (which I coated with Star Dust Stickles), 
from my Spellbinders Butterfly Circle die (from another project) - 
see, I told you before I don't throw anything away!

  22. Jennifer, this is one of the sweetest cards I've ever seen. This is so gorgeous. I love the image, who doesn't love LOTV stamps, but it's the details of this card that are truly magnificent. The way you colored your own background, hence, it matches the card just beautifully. The flowers are outstanding and I'm are a weakness with me. The diecuts are outstanding. This is a card that is a beautiful piece of art. --Gail
