CAS Lily of the valley

This week on Daring cardmakers the theme is Flowers for May - either hawthorn or lily of the valley. I used a clipart picture from Publisher and digitally tweaked it a bit. The base card is pearlised (haven't used any of this pearlised card for some time) and the dark green textured card is some that I came across when I had my sort out last week - no idea where it came from or how long I've had it - from my early days of cardmaking. The background paper behind the picture and the sentiment is from Dena. The sentiment was computer generated and printed, using one of my favourite fonts, Lucida Calligraphy.

This is also for:
