My favorite flower is Lily of the Valley. The house I grew up in Ohio had fields of it that my mom planted that just smelled amazing and the delicate little flowers were so beautiful. When my parents sold their house I had only one wish. I wanted a few pips of the flowers so that I could grow it myself. My mom packed the pips in wet newspaper and hand carried it to me 7 years and ago and I planted it in a pot and now it packs the pot and I get a handful of stems with the fragrant flowers just for a few weeks every year and I just love it.It brings back the memory of that old house with the pink and red flower wallpaper in the bedroom and you can't do anything but smile.
I have been looking for a die that would make this but could not find one until I saw this tulip and thought it could work so I tried it and think it does. What do you think? Base is lucky limeade with a flower from Mixed bunch stamped on it with craft white ( I had it left over from another project but I thought it still worked. Stamped the sentiment (Full of Life- retired) in black. The flowers just looked very dramatic with the black background so I kept it but did the tulip EF around it to frame it a bit then layered it with white before layering on to the base card. I could add some more flowers but ran out of time. oh well.
