Lili of the Valley Challenge -week 1

Yay! It's here at last! Today is Lili of the Valley's Challenge blog's first challenge!! Every Thursday will see a new challenge with some great prizes on offer. As this is the official challenge blog for LOTV, Laila and Lisa will be donating the prizes and will be visiting the blog to take a look at everyone's entries!!

This week's challenge is called "Welcome"- this could cover "welcome home", "new baby", "welcome back" etc. For the first few challenges you are not limited to LOTV products so don't worry if you haven't got any yet!

Here is what I came up with for my design team entry:

For this card, I used the Lili of the Valley Babies- Hello stamp which I coloured in with copics and highlighted with Crystal Stickles and a blue hotfix crystal. I cut the image out and mounted it on flowery paper (both from Lili of the Valley) and layered with some pretty gingham paper. I then added some more crystals, buttons, a ribbon and die cut the sentiment using my Wingo Zingo alphabet. I think he looks cute!

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Lili of the Valley); Papers (Lili of the Valley & Making Memories); Copics; Crystal Stickles; Assorted cardstock; Buttons (free); Ribbon (recycled); Hot fix crystals; Wingo Zingo alphabet (Sizzix)

Do have a look at the challenge blog and see the other girls' entries on the design team- they're fantastic! And have a go yourself because the prize is sooo cute!

Whilst I'm talking about LOTV, I also wanted to say a big thank you to Laila and Lisa for making me part of the design team but also to Jacqui who did fantastic work in getting the blog up and running and for sending me this stunning card. It's so beautiful, I just had to show you! Thanks, Jacqui!
