LOTV - new release

Good morning, hope you're all well

Thanks for your comments on my little penguin card, they're all much appreciated

The new Geisha Girls are out now on  the Lili of the Valley website and they are scrumptious!

The design team have done some beautiful cards with them which I''ve been showcasing on the Ideas To Inspire blog for the past week so if you haven't seen them do go and have a look

We're also launching some new Christmas stamps at the same time, there's a fabulous set of tags with Christmas images which you will find so useful ...and also a sheet with Traditional Christmas Icons

I've used the tree from that sheet on this card...

I tried to keep to traditional colours, I like brown and red for Christmas

I stamped the tree and inked all the edges of the My Minds Eye papers with Walnut Stain distress ink

The dots on the tree are done with liquid pearls and then I've speckled it with gold frantage powder - I love these powders at the minute

The twine is from Creative Expressions and the sentiment is one of the HUGELY popular Grungy Christmas Messages

Sorry for the bad picture, the light was terrible!

Enjoy your day!
