Happy 18th Birthday with Lili Of The Valley Stamp - Emma Shoes and Spellbinders

Happy 18th Birthday with Lili Of The Valley Stamp - Emma Shoes and Spellbinders

Just love this little stamp from LOTV and as I needed a card for Emma's 18th who also loves shoes, fashion ad shopping it seemed very appropriate for my job.

I've been digitally messing around with the backing papers again although there's so much on this card that it's quite difficult to see them. I wanted this card to have lovely spring colours as those are my favourite at the moment, I think thats because it's been so cold of late and this last few days the beautiful sunshine is making me hope we've got to the end of the winter at last. Mind you I'm not sure the forecasters would agree with me.

    162 - What's Your Favourite Colour

Here is another one but I left out the Sakura this time and just used Promarkers on the shoes
which is definately looks better in the photograph.
I think the mix of colours is a bit better on this one too -


  1. Awww how pretty, love all the pinks and detail on your card, so so beautiful. Thank you for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers this week and good luck xx

  2. Absolutley fabulous. Thanks for taking part at I ♥ Promarkers this week.

  3. Very cute!! What promarker colors have you used for her hat and shoes?

    1. Hi Anna and thank you.
      Hat and Dress are both in Baby Pink R228 and Cerise M647
      and the little apron part is Pale Pink R519

      2 of the Shoes are in Antique Pink R346 and Amethyst (Can't find a number on this pen) with just a tiny touch of Cool Grey 4. There's also a wee tiny bit of glaze on the Amethyst one.
      Other 2 are in Sakura Glaze which has made them shiney in the photo

    2. Oh I forgot about the ribbon and flower -
      Ribbon and Leaves are in Lime Green with Forest Green
      Flower is in Canary with Gold O555 over the top

    3. Ooops again, I really should write down the colours as I go along -
      I think I actually used Buttercup and then Gold on the flower and on the little shoe in her hand.
      It was the box that got the Canary and then Lime Green on it.

  4. These two cards are actually using the same colours - it's just the lighting here and my poor photography skills making them look different :)
