Delightful Lilies

Good morning everyone. I have been a poor blogger as I was turning bedrooms around and sorting out, you don't realise how much junk you keep stored away! Mostly sorted now and hope to do better now that it is out of the way.
Sun is shining but very cold here in my part of Cornwall.
This card has been a work in progress all week due to time constraints. Love the lilies and the colours worked beautifully for me on the parchment. It was a nightmare doing all the embossing though. I think this will make a very nice Mothers day card.
Entering this in a couple of challenges which the theme was flowers.

the pixie cottage.

Hope you all enjoy your visit and thanks so much for the comments you take the time to leave here.
