Lili Of The Valley - Donalda's Sketch

When I saw that Donalda had put a sketch together for the Lili of the Valley Challenge I just had to make a card with it. .........But could I find my Lili fairies? Not on your life. I know they are in one of my drawers somewhere, but they must be playing hide and seek with me. Naughty fairies.

So, instead I used a Stampendous Stamp and made an Easter card with the layout. Hope you don't mind. It was a wonderful sketch to work with.
I also took a leaf out of Jacqui's (Cats Whiskers) book - she mentioned using up her scrap papers a few days ago on her blog, so that's exactly what I've done with this card. The image has been made 3d by stamping it twice and cutting out the doves on one image and attaching them with 3d foam pads

Items used:
Scrap Orange Card, Yellow paper run through the swiss dots folder, Orange DCWV Floral Prints large piece of scrap and Yellow DCWV Pocket full of Posies scrap.
Dovecraft square brads,
Stampendous Glass Dove Window stamp
Red, orange and yellow ink pads
Prima flower, L-Em stamens punch and wire from my stash
Ribbon from a card bought at the local £1 shop
Computer printed sentiment
Watercolour pencils
Stickles (on the doves)
