Another week, another challenge, and another card done for the February Stamp Clubs!!!  I love doing the challenges - they inspire me and give me fresh ideas, and keep me on track.  Everyone needs a little help like that.

I used the new Claire background and texture paper for this card.  This paper will be available the beginning of February in the new Spring/Summer 2013 CTMH catalog.  I accented with Pansy Purple (it's retired, but the stamp pad was Smokey Plum which is very close).
I used the CTMH alcohol markers to color the lilies, and added bitty pearls colored with alcohol ink for the stamens. 

Freshly Made Sketches are all about clean designs.  The flowers are the focal point.  The embossing on the front adds detail without being distracting.

The inside of the card uses the other lily image from the stamp set.  Specifics of all the products I used can be found on the "My Challenges" page of this blog.

The design of this card is such that you could turn it into a Thinking of You card or a card for Easter - whatever you need!

Thanks for looking!
