You are fabulous!

Hi there!

Happy Saturday to you 😊

I was considering all options for a focal point for my card... just couldn't decide. On Thursday night we invited friends over for dinner. They were so kind to bring along the prettiest bunch of lilies. They smell amazing! Just then I remembered this beautiful lily stamp from Concord & 9th.

Problem solved ... so happy to ink up this beauty only for the second time!

I love the way you inked it up. Very interesting and pretty! The rock background works perfectly for the sketch. You're very good with the challenges!

You are inspiring me to take my own C9 Lily
stamp out again! What a beautiful way to color that stamp - the sketchy style of the image goes perfectly with the rest of your card design! So elegant and artsy! Love it. :)
