Happy yellow lilies

Hello crafting friends!

Welcome to a brand new challenge at Addicted to CAS! Joy is hosting the challenge for the next two weeks and has chosen Flower as her theme word.

It's always fun to get out the flowers isn't it?! I've chosen these pretties from Clearly Besotted's Perfect Lilies, a bargain I recently bought from the company's amazing sale section.

I stamped them in a pale yellow ink then held Funky Fossil's Trellis Background stencil over it and sponged blue ink roughly round the outside. The flowers were coloured using coloured pencils and the card finished with a sentiment from Altenew's Birthday Greetings.

And now it's your turn! There's heaps of inspiration from my teamies over at the Addicted to CAS blog.  Check it out and you can also link your creation up there using the Linky Tool. I can't wait to see the gallery fill up with beautiful CAS floral creations!

I'm linking this card up with Happy Little Stampers Stencil challenge where Anything Goes; and Stamplorations Stencil challenge where Anything Goes; I've not used the lily stamp before so I'll share this card at the NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) challenge.

It's so much lighter now and it's showing up all those dusty corners! I think this weekend is going to have to be the start of my spring cleaning!

Sending hugs,


  1. BEAUTIFUL LILY and so well coloured.

    Good luck with the Spring cleaning!

  10. I'm curious, Vicky ~ where on your walk did you take this lovely photo of the lilies? Wait. What? It's not a photo? Well, that's how fantastically you colored this sweet yellow beauty! And I love that you just let it be the single focus pocus in all its glory! Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

  16. Very nice, Vicky! I love how the background just fades away, making the yellow flowers pop. Oh, and good luck with that spring cleaning thing. xoxo Fran
