It's the first day of April! 15 years ago today, I married my bestfriend on his birthday! It's a double celebration for us BUT because of my post-surgery dietary restrictions, our anniversary/hubby's birthday dinner will have to wait until (maybe) next week!

Today, I'm sharing with you a card I made using Princess of the Valley from the Princes & Princesses collection. I color Tilda with Distress Ink Re-inkers on Arches HP 140lbs paper.
The flowers used are all from Wild Orchid Crafts EXCEPT for the Lilies of the Valley -- I made them myself!  :)  And if you scroll down, you can watch on video how I made the flowers.

 Here's the video!

This is how I made the Lilies of the Valley! I do apologize about this video (lighting/glare/noise) because this is my first time to make a video like this!

MME 6x6 pad: Lost & Found 2
