Card Captain-Monday April 29, 2013

This week I am "Card Captain" for the Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps Yahoo Group. Today's card is made with Mike's  Special Lily stamp set, which I think he named after his granddaughter, Lily.  Isn't she a doll!
For the card base I used a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2" piece of yellow bazzill cardstock, folded in half.
Stamped the large lily stamp on white cardstock with Distress pumice stone ink. Added color with my stash of color pencils. Then  trimmed the flower with scissors.
Embossed a 2" wide x 2-1/4"high strip of white cardstock with Cuttlbug's D'vine Swirls. Distressed that with scattered straw distress ink on the edges and on top of the swirls.
Cut a small strip of white cardstock, 1" wide x 5-1/2" long and distressed the edges with scattered straw. Adhered a strip of cotton lace underneath.
These elements were adhered to the card as shown. Foam squares were used  for the flower and a mini glue dot for the tiny bow.

Below is the inside of my card. Used scattered straw distress ink on the edges of the white paper and to stamp a portion the lily on the left.
