LOTV card for a friend

Hello there!
I got my new Lily of the Valley stamps two days ago. I just couldn't wait to start color them up - they are FANTASTIC!! I couldn't afford more than 5 because I have to pay my Education loan this month, but I wanted to order them all! (You know, I REALLY struggled to find out which one to choose...) Guess I have to make a new order soon... *lol* I ordered a couple of stamps from the latest release, and some of the "good old ones" :) Here are some pics of the first finished card, which goes to the following challenges:

* Friday Sketchers Blog - Sketch #139 (I turned one of the squares a little, I hope it's okay...)
* Anonyme Scrappere - Bright pink and white
* Basic Grey Challenges - Flower Power
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Valentine's card with a heart (in the dp's)

My finished card - you can see that the flowers in the dp's are filled up with hearts, I think it's a fantastic detail in these gorgeous papers :) But hey, wait! NO MACHINESEWING?!?! *lol*

Isn't she the most adorable girlie you've ever seen?! This is definitly my fav LOTV stamp :)

The brad - and the ribbons my mum bought me in Germany ;)

"For you, my friend"

My homemade flower. Since I didn't have a bright pink flower, I had to make one on my own. I sprayed some paperflowers with Glimmer Mist and folded them together, let them dry and added some glitters :)

The inside - I think the dp's are so beautiful that I didn't have to decorate the inside - I've only added some glitterglue on the edges of the writing panel

Size: 6" x 6"
Papers: Basic Grey Bittersweet - Ganache and Rocky Road
Stamps: Lily of the Valley - Rosie Posy
Coloring: Watercolorpencils
Others: Brad, roseleafes and halfpearls from Kort og Godt. Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Glitter glue.  Paperflowers. Glimmer Mist Sweet Pea from Tattered Angels.
Techniques: All papers are distressed and inked with Distress Ink

I hope you liked my card, and I would love to get some comments on it if you're here :)
Today is my day off from work, I was asked to work extra at school, but I had to say no because my three kids are all sick. But it's OK to have one day off, since I'm working this weekend too. It can sometimes be hard to combine being a mother to three small kids and working fullpart too...
Well, thanks for visiting. Wishing you a great day!

Lots of love,
