Love Grows

Good day, I hope that you have all been enjoying the same sunshine that we have had here. Spring has definitely arrived and I am so excited to see my garden springing back to life. This is in keeping with my card today as it features a super cute image from Lili of the Valley called Love Grows.


This is another image that I had coloured some time ago without giving any thought to what papers I would use it with. I struggled with what papers to pair it with but when my new Hello Luscious paper arrived last week I knew that this image had found a home. This collection is full of wonderful, cheery spring colour that just makes me happy.

This is a rather large card for me measuring a full 6 inches square but I wanted to have enough room on the card that you would still see those gorgeous papers. To embellish my card I have created a little floral arrangement using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and have die cut a little tag which I have tucked behind the image and embellished with a ribbon bow and a heart charm to continue the theme of love.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope that you will come back again tomorrow for the start of another ABC Christmas Challenge.

Just a note, the charm that I used came from my friend Lacey (thanks sweetie)
and she has a sale on now at her store
