Lily of The Valley and Vellum

I have certainly been out of touch lately with all of you
out of touch with all my designing
but am hoping to jump right back in again!

I had a wonderful, though relatively quiet Christmas,
how about you?

I cooked a big dinner for my husband and my oldest son
that would of been spending Christmas alone.

I am also in the process of taking my Mom to radiation
and it is about 100 miles for me and takes up most of my
day by the time I drive to get her and
then to radiation as they don't have it close by
where she lives (sort long story.

Any who to get me going to I decided to post
one of the many cards I made for the Tutti Designs store.

I love, love this card, so delicate
with the beautiful Lily of the Valley Frame.

I printed out a background of beautiful lily of the valley,
then cut out a piece of vellum to cover
for a soft look.
The die cut was placed on top of that.
I colored the leaves with my Copics, then added a pretty green bow.

This card is beautiful! The colors are perfect! I love this particular die, my Mother in Law adored Lily Of The Valley, I have a ton of them in my gardens from her. I am sorry to hear about your Mom, wish there was something closer for both of you. You're both in my thoughts and prayers. xo~

Ohhhh, this is so sweet and beautiful! What perfection to use the Lily of the Valley in the background with the vellum overlay. Love the soft green. I'm with Darlene -- glad you're sharing your Tutti designs here. You're a good daughter, Diane, and your mom appreciates you.
