ABC Challenges - "K is for Keep it Simple"

Good Morning Crafters yet another half of the month has flown by and we have now reached the beginning of a new one and for todays theme over on ABC Challenge Blogspot is all about "K is for Keep it Simple" and we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Oak Pond Creations.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/OakPondCreations
They are offering a fabulous prize of
3 digi images of winners choice.

And we were lucky enough to be able to choose a image to play with and I love Lilies so its a not surprising that I chose this gorgeous one and you will find it here.


I printed it onto white card and used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I cut it out with my rotatrim and layered it up onto a piece of white pearlescent card. The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of white pearlescent card which I have run through my ebosser with a embossing folder. I also wrapped a piece of pink ribbon which echos the colour of the flowers and attached it to the back of the first mount.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the ABC Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team for inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this themed "K is for Keep it Simple" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
