Lili of the Valley Sketch Challenge #65

Hello my lovely friends. I meant to post this card this morning but instead I was up at the crack of dawn going on a road trip with Sean and our friend Rich. The fabulous news is Sean bought a 1967 Ford Galaxy off EBay and we had to drive 3 1/2 hours to pick it up. This car is absolutely drooling gorgeous. It needs some TLC and we have lots to give her so she's gonna feel right at home here with us. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

So on to today's card. I'm entering my card using LOTV sketch challenge 65 designed by Lena from the Lili of the Valley. I also ordered this super duper cute LOTV stamp called "Decorating The Tree". I just couldn't wait to get my Copics all over it. I'm not happy how the tree came out. I think I need more of a variety of green Copics. Next time.... The paper is by Tim Holtz called "Vintage Shabby". The black lace and small black roses and mini red ones are by Wild Orchids. The larger grey flower is by Recollections. Sentiment by K&Co.
Thank you all so very much for all the love you leave on my blog. I really really appreciate it. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope I've inspired you a little with today's creation. Have a Sparkling Day!!
Hugs Bonnie :0)

Hi Bonnie, Love this so so much, it just shouts Christmas right at you!
I love all the different colours you have put together they all blend so well even though you have used quite a few colours, I wish I could do that, when I do it it just looks so messy, yours looks so AMAZING.
happy new ford Galaxy, you will get some looks in that, a real drool machine, we have a 1964 Ford Consul Capri, and people do stare.

This is SO cute! I like how you went with the black and gray instead of more traditional Christmas colors. I LOVE LOTV, and in fact, just ordered my first stamps! I can't wait for them to arrive so I can play!

Great job on the coloring, too!
