Cute Cottage Garden for LOTV

Hello lovely peeps.

If you hadn't heard, the Lili of the Valley paper pads and art pads are being discontinued, so if you want any then you need to head off to the website and snap them up before they're all gone. 

My first January card for the Design Collective uses images from the 'Cute Cottage Garden' art pad and the 'Heartfelt' paper pad* - these are both still in stock at time of writing.

*The dark red paper is from Always and Forever Solids (no longer available at LOTV, but still available as a digital download from Nitwit)

I've also used one of sentiment stamps in  'Set 7 - For You Circular Sentiments'

The basis of my design is a sketch from the current Stamp, Ink Paper Challenge as I thought this was a good way to showcase the beautiful papers.
SIP Sketch Challenge 29 800

Katrina, this is gorgeous. Such a pretty card and a really clever idea to use two images in the same design.

You have really captured the prettiness of an English cottage garden here with the lovely image and gorgeous papers, and the fishtail design is fab for using up scraps.
Big hugs, Kat xx
