Lilly Thanks

 I need Thank You cards by the numbers this week, so made 4 of these for starters for my Michael Strong Yahoo Group Day 3 card.
 I used a really old piece of Vellum that I have been hoarding- it has a purple hue to it. I embossed the lillies using white EP, then colored them with Copics V12 and V15 and G82. The cardstock is retired SU. The sentiment is from Sweet Stamps. I debated adding ribbon and embellishments, but I have to mail this card, so will stop at this point.

Challenges:
Cards in Envy- Just Purple
Creative Card Crew- CAS
One Stitch at a Time- Embossing
Paper Players- Celebrate Spring CAS

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, What a wonderful use for that hoarded piece of vellum! (Though I totally understand why you were hanging onto it. LOL... Been there, done that.) Seriously, this is one gorgeous card. Thanks so much for joining us at Cards in Envy. :)
