Fabric Brads - Heidi Grace for Colorbok
Lace - Wrights
Ribbon - Hobby Lobby

Pearls - The Paper Studio

Now there was no way I wasn't going to use this image as Stargazer Lilies are my favorite flower, I had them in my wedding bouquet, and so this was just perfect for me.
I cut out and popped up a few of the lilies for extra dimension and finished the card with a hand tied bow.
I hope you like this and will be creating too and sharing with us at Besties Challenge
