Lily birthday card

Hello! I hope you're having a good weekend! I'm back after a little break with a birthday card I've made for my step mum-in-law. I used the MFT Lilies die and coloured it with Copics. I originally left the background blank but it looked a bit plain so I stamped a background in VersaMark ink. The lilies are perfect for sympathy cards but I didn't want to this to look like one so I followed this weeks bright colour combo from Colour Throwdown. I also took inspiration from this weeks Cutting Edge challenge card and I'm entering it to Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes challenge too. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!







Supplies;
Dies - Lil' Inker 'Stitched Rectangles' & MFT 'Lily'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Coastal Cabana'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Smoky Slate' & VersaMark
Sentiment - MFT 'Let's Toast'
Background - Hero Arts 'Lotus Background'
Other - Copics & gems

*gasp!* Your Copic coloring on the lilies is stunning! I've had that die ever since it was released and have yet to use it, but this inspires me to get it out! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown.
