Beary Sweet LOTV creation!!

Happy Tuesday everybody!!!
I hope your weekends were lovely.
Our hot weather is back with a vengeance
so I guess there's only one thing for me to do....
Hide out in my craft space!!

I put together this little cutie after shamefully acknowledging my pile of unused Lili of the Valley stamps, they're so stinkin' cute, I'm not sure how I've been able to avoid them for sooooo looooong!!!

So I went to work with my distress ink pads and painted this image up, it's called "Hello Gorgeous." I took a shot in the dark with colouring the dresser and things, I wasn't sure what was wall and what was furniture, but I think I got it right...

I've used October Afternoon spotty paper and Prima floral papers along with lots of glimmered-up flowers and stamen, a touch of pearls, some glitter, distressing is done in Vintage Photo, lace and other goodies are from my stash.

The sentiment I've used is designed by Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps and is from the Magical Mini Letter Seals sentiment set!!

And here's the inside, left open for a personal greeting!!

I'll take animal-related challenge blogs for $500, Alex:

Have a great week!!
Hugs, stephanne
