'Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters!'

This week's Lili of the Valley Challenge is Bring On The Music. You have to make a card featuring music, or a song, or musical notes etc!

My sister's birthday is in July, so I immediately thought of the song 'Sisters, Sisters' by Irving Berlin from the film 'White Christmas.' This cute little stamp, 'Coffee Time', is just right! I used papers from the 'Bloom and Grow' pad by My Mind's Eye, which are lovely and bright.

The sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Ribbon and flowers are from stash, and I stickled the edges of the papers, and you can just see where I used a MS doily lace punch, too. There's also a Marianne swirl at the bottom left, but it isn't showing very well!

I decorated the inside to match:

The sentiment is LotV, the doily is a Nestie. I'm rather pleased with this card - but not with the pictures! They're rather faded, and definitely wonky - I snapped them outside in between breezes, so it was all a bit hurried!

I hope you're all having a lovely evening on this longest day of the year! Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
