PCS Lily at the Beach - Release Day!

Yay!... it's release day and these summer lovelies are now available to buy in the Pink Cat Store. These little cuties would sure brighten anyones day whether for a birthday greeting, to cheer up a friend or a card just to say "hi". Here is the set in it's entirety:

To see how I created my little nestie card you can see my previous tutorial here. For this card I have used labels one for the main shape and also the oval die for my image but the principle is the same.

The papers are again from the MME Magnolia collection... I know I will try to use some different papers soon ;-) but I did buy 180 sheets of them! lol

The flowers are Prima Hydrangeas, ribbon was free with a magazine and the cute little sun brad I bought from Ebay some time ago. Image coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending. I have added a little sakura stardust to Lily's mask but this is not showing well in the photo.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my sneak peaks and don't forget that in my first post is the links to my fabulous team members.

Big Hugs,
