A card made using my NEW lili of the valley stamp

Good Afternoon ladies I hope you are well. This is just a quick post as we are expecting guests for dinner soon :) I am so excited I finally bought my first Lili of the valley stamp, I had to wait patiently for the EZ Mount to arrive so I could mount it, I have now mounted all my other stamps too, I had tried using some DST but that really wasn't working so I had found myself neglecting my stamps and that is not on :)

Any how I used the sketch on the lili of the valley challenge blog to make this card. The sketch is shown below;

 

Here is what I did with the sketch, I used K&Co papers I love these ones they are 12x12 so on my little cards they do go far I just need to buy more. I coloured my Lili of the valley image with my copic markers. I love the effect of the ribbon going through the netting (brain freeze can remember what the actual name is) i saw this on someone elses blog and loved it so thought i might give it a go I think I am hooked. (ps i would say whos blog i saw it on but I cant for the life of me remember)

 
 

The buttons were from my stash, the brad is from papermania. 
I am entering this card in to the following challenges;

Lili of the valley - Sketch
Incy Wincy Designs - Buttons, bows ribbons and lace (I don't have a bow but I hope this still counts)
Dutch Dare Chalenge - Summer in Winter i think the image of the boy leaning against the tree is very summery cant wait to go for picnics in summer whoop
