Pretty Bouquet's the 1st August already. Happy birthday to all the horses, and here in Australia it is National Wattle Day.

It is time for my second DT card as one of Lili's Little Fairies. Our challenge theme this time gives you heaps of opportunities to ink up so many of the gorgeous Lili Of The Valley stamps.....
Our lovely sponsor this week is

I have used one of my new LOTV stamps, Pretty Bouquet. Isn't she sweet!
I have had this gorgeous paper for ages, and have procrastinated about using it (you all know I am a paper addict/hoarder don't you). However, this cute image justified me cutting into it. As soon as I saw this little cute-pie, I thought "mmmm...she's a soft pink and blue girl". I have also been hoarding that luxurious lace for what seems like forever.
She was a joy to colour, using my Promarkers as usual. I used the largest die in the Spellbinders Labels Four set to cut the pink mat under the image, and cut out the image itself by lightly tracing around the inside of the die then cutting it out by hand. This gives a very narrow mat. I then glittered everything in sight.
The pin just had a crystal head, and I added the beads myself. The little 
sentiment tags are LOTV.
A closer look at the lovely flowers which I 'smothered' with Stickles.
