Lili of the Valley

I received my first group of Lili of the Valley stamps a few weeks ago. They are just so cute! I decided to make my first Lili of the Valley card using the Lili of the Valley Sketch Challenge. This card is for my brothers’ birthday which is in December. My favourite bit about this card, besides the image, is the Leather strap and buckle. You see, in some vintage cars, they use leather and buckles to keep the bonnet (hood) secure to the rest of the car. I thought it was a fitting addition to the vintage style motor car in the image! I added some Tim Holtz metal gears for added charm! This card also fits the Cards for Men challenge #15; Use 1 image, 2 Papers, and three embellishments.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Lili of the Valley Zooming Along, PTI (Papertrey Ink) Sentiment Birthday Basics
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: SU Night of Navy, Gina K Pure Luxury White
Paper: Basic Grey Oliver, SU Chocolate Chip DSP
Accessories: Leather Trim from Michaels, SU Hodge Podge Hardware Ribbon slide, Tim Holtz Metal Gears.

Thanks for visiting. I love reading your comments!
