Lili of the Valley #89 - Punch It

Good morning folks and what a lovely morning it is here with the sun shining brightly and the birds chirping away. I can´t believe it´s Thursday already, I just seem to blink these days and the week has passed me by.

We have another fabulous challenge at Lili of the Valley for you this week


so let´s see you dust off your punches and play along!

I have inked up Together Forever, coloured with my copics and cut out with my nesties, the circular sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley. Papers are BG Urban Prairie, Martha Stewart border punch and flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I adore this image and can´t believe this is the first time I have inked it up, versatile for so many occassions don´t you think?
