Lilies for Delicious Doodles

     A few days ago, I found out that the challenges at Delicious Doodles are back and I'm thrilled about that.  I loved it when I worked on the DT for Teri and making this card with one of her images was so much fun.  I plan to be a regular in the challenges from now on.

     I don't use yellow as my main color very often but I had those papers lying on my desk and grabbed my yellow chalks to do just a touch of coloring on the lilies and butterfly.  Most of the time spent on this card was taken up putting together all the layers.

     The bow is one of those I make myself, sewing them together and putting them in m y stash.  This one was white but I colored it with a buttercup yellow ProMarker pen.  The gold mesh was a leftover scrap.  I still have a piece or two of it left and I'm going to really miss it when it's gone.  It was a recycle/ rescue from a plant I was given and it was just too pretty to toss out.  It has decorated several of my cards.

This is such a pretty piece. The lily image is gorgeous and I love the way you have colored them. The yellow hues are certainly cheery. Great dimension with all the layers too.

Hi there, in love with the beauty of this elegant card. Fabulous composition and palette. Lately, I am liking the yellow, it is like a breath of fresh air and sunshine. Found out today my friend to whom I am a caregiver has stage 4 Lung cancer. She did not know. A shock for the both of us.
Have a wonderful day

NanaConnie, what a lovely card you have made here which fits perfectly the Delicious Doodles Challenge this week of “Anything goes Blog Hop”. Strange too I don't use yellow much. Not sure why as it's such a cheery colour. Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog Design Team Member)
