Cheerful Lily - Stampin' Up! Lasting Lily

 Today's card just screams spring to me and with the sunny warm weather we are having the last few days it's nice to look ahead to things greening up and flowers budding.

  Lasting Lily is one of the free Sale-a-Bration rewards this year and it is a fantastic mix of beautiful images and sentiments.

I choose the Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight color combo for a bright, cheerful thinking of you card.  It's always nice to have a few cards like this on hand to pop in the mail when you're thinking of someone.

  While the lily is beautiful with a lot of fine detail I will say that when using a very juicy ink pad I didn't have such great results so if you're having a bit of the same kind of trouble try using a dryer ink pad or even stamping off to see if that helps.  I think extra ink can pool in some of the fine lines of the design and then they get lost when stamped to cardstock.

  The base of the card is Highland Heather, a layer of Whisper White topped with a piece of Gingham Gala DSP.

  The lily is stamped in Daffodil Delight, stem and leaf in Pear Pizzazz and the stamen lightly colored over with a Mango Melody marker.  I cut out the flower panel with the Stitched Rectangle framelits.

  The sentiment was stamped on strip of Highland Heather in the same color ink and layered across the bottom of the flower panel and adhered with dimensionals.

  I haven't used adhesive pearls in a really long time but I thought their understated elegance worked wonderfully with this card.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
