CTMH Lillies - MMSC41

I'm back with another card inspired by a sketch Challenge from Midnight Madness #43. Gotta love their sketches!!!

For this card I used the Lillies from a Close to my Heart stamp set called "Enjoy Every Moment".
The designer paper used is from the Veranda Paper Pack.
The Buttons are clear buttons that were backed with matching designer paper from the same pack.
The image was stamped twice, heat embossed with Clear EP, colored with Copic Markers, and layered.

The emtire front was hand stitched with matching embroidery floss.

Hi Nancy, I admired how gracefully you have done the calla lilies with such soft colors. The complimenting spring like pastel colors give an aura of gentle tenderness. OH, your handstitching is impeccable! I sure want to see more of your cards in the coming sketchs, xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT
