Lili of the Valley challenge and Sweetheart Blossoms

This weeks challenge on Lili of the Valley challenge is to use Die Cuts or Punches.  And can you believe I didn’t use a single punch on this card lol.  I got so carried away with creating the sky background and colouring the image (Gone Fishing) I forgot so thank goodness for this Spellbinders Heritage set, perfect for male cards. 

Talking of sky, if anyone is interested in me shooting a quick video on how I did this just leave a comment and I will get one done and also include how I coloured this image.

Aren’t these papers just the bizz!!  They are Memory Box Valise (totally love them!!)  and Tracy has them on offer too – bonus!  The buttons are die cuts from the same set, I just threaded some twine through them.

I was digging though one of my button jars for some fishing themed buttons and found this cut little fishing rod, which was perfect as I don't think I could have crammed much more on the card without covering all the paper lol.

And now for the Sweetheart Blossoms news, there are new colours and also restocks going on the website today so if you want them get in quick, they usually sell out right away!
