Lily of the Valley


Happy Sunday!

I made a set of three cards using the Year of Flowers: Lily of the Valley stamp set and the background circles from Round and Round. This card set is off to my mom whose favorite flowers are Lily of the Valley.

I also used the large rectangle from Take Note to frame my focal image, an idea shared by Erin Lincoln here .

Thanks for coming by!
