Lili Of the Valley - Special Friend Wreath

 Hello everyone

Wow, I can't believe we are in April...where on earth did the past 3 months go! I also cannot believe that I will hit the 'big 6-0' later this month. When I was a little girl, people who were 60 and beyond were simply OLD, but now I have a totally different view on on that....surprisingly enough. Lol  

Moving swiftly on, today I'm sharing another newly released collection called 'Circle Floral Frames with Beautiful  Messages'. These flower frames are gorgeous and includes lots of different messages inside plus one that is blank along with lots of separate sentiments. The one I used is called 'Special Friend'. I used Copic pens to colour with. I hope you like it.  

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
To start with I covered the front of a 6 x 6" card blank with some turquoise grungy paper leaving a slim border around the edge. Using my graphics software I imported the beautiful flower frame and resized it to fit my project. The image was printed twice onto colouring cardstock, one of the images was die cut with a decorative square die. The image was coloured in using Copic pens apart from the flowers, then mounted onto a piece of white card to give it some support. Funky foam was added to the back of the topper to give it some height and attached to the centre of the card. 

On the 2nd images that was printed out, only the flowers were coloured in and fussy cut out. Glitter was added to each of the flowers, and then added to the card front using foam pads directly over their counterpart on the main image. To finish the card I added several pearls around the frame.
