LOTV - On the Garden Wall


 Today's card is one I made for a guest design spot at Crafting by Designs.  I was so excited when Doris asked if I would like to join them and jumped at the chance... YES! so thank you ladies for having me.

 This week's challenge theme is 'Hats' so I was on the hunt for something suitable and I came across a sweet Lili of the Valley stamp I have called On the Garden Wall.  I thought this little gal's big hat would be a good fit for the theme so here we are.
Can you believe it?  There's not a single bit of Frantage on here... not a bit!  The image is so sweet and I wanted to keep the design simple so all I did was add some Stardust Stickles to her hat and flowers and then some glossy accents to his glasses.  I was so happy to find the perfect shade of purple for the enamel dots and that little piece of ribbon was from my stash.
Be sure to head on over to Crafting by Designs to see what the talented gals on the team have created and then pop on over to their Facebook page to check out the wonderful inspiration there.  Thanks for stopping by!
