Lilly's of the Valley


 Hi All, today I am sharing a card I made for the Gecko Galz design team using this lovely Lilly's of the Valley image from the Pretty Petals Collection.  This has always been one of my favorite flowers, my grandmother grew them in her garden off the porch, I can remember sitting on the glider smelling their sweet scent.  This was a rather simple card to make, I just printed the image on Staples photo paper along with the background paper from It's Not Easy Being Green.  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to trim a 1/16th frame around the image, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink, mounted it to a sheet of white card stock that had also been distressed, then mounted that to the background print.  The envelope is lined in the same matching paper printed on to copy paper.  I had the embellishment in my stash for a long time, and decided it would be a great finish to this card.  Well that's it for today, hope you are all enjoying some Spring like weather wherever you are, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane
