I’ve had this image sitting on my desk for a few days now. You see, I tend to favour the pastel shades and this one just cried out to be bright!!… so we had a bit of a stand off, LOL In the end I gave in and coloured her in some brighter shades of purple and yellow, but kept the papers soft and muted and added lots of ‘shabby stuff’ to just let my image pop. This is what I created:

Festive Lily card
