A rose for my sweetheart


These Lili of the Valley images of this couple have to be some of the cutest images suitable for anniversaries. I challenged myself to colour them only in red, black and grey apart from the hair. Not a couple combo I use much but I think they look adorable. I just had to give her red shoes like Dorothy.

The backing paper is from Hobbycraft and the other is Victorian Classic from Papercellar. They have been coloured with Promarkers with red glitter pen for the pattern on her skirt. I have used DI Worn Lipstick around the image. Ribbon and pearl hearts are from The Works, sentiment is Lili of the Valley, corner was made with a Memory Box die, Macarena corner, bow from Meiflower.
