Lily of the Valley for Doodle Pantry

More colouring! I think I might enjoy deciding what colour the flowers are going to be more than I love colouring the flowers. OK, well maybe not more but this choice was really easy! There are only pink and white lilies of the valley and I went traditional. I think it would make a great wedding card!

I couldn’t decide what DP to use. Green overwhelmed the leaves making them blend in. All the colours I tried, even pastels seemed too strong for tiny white flowers. So I went with all white. I mean, why not? It is elegant and sweet.  The background is scored in a diamond pattern to give some texture. I haven’t done this before and I see it over and over again and never get to trying it so here it is! Finally! And I got to try my pansy Punch-Around-The-Page rather than just using the border punch.

Oooo, so serene and calm looking! Love the crispness too, perfect for wedding! That image also works for sympathy. (p.s. I've been trying to reach you at the email I have on file!)
