It's Lily Week with AiFActory

Hi everyone. I'd like to thank you for all of the good wishes this past week. They are definitely helping. I did go to the doctor and she said it was just a bad strain again. She switched me over to vicodin sso that I could function instead of just sleeping. I'm not at 100%, (and it's making my kids laugh at me when I walk), but I"m getting there.

For AiFActory Challenge #27, we're working with the Lily Collection, which is being reduced to $5 for the whole collection, and the challenge is to make a simple card with some sort of clear element to it. It can be a clear embellishment, clear embossing powder, acetate...whatever, just as long as there is something clear on the card. Since I love embossing so much, I used clear embossing powder to emboss my sentiment.

My lily was the Mariposa Lily. I'd never seen one before, so I googled images to see what they looked like to get colouring ideas. This is the image I used for inspiration. They're such pretty flowers. I used the sketch from CPS157. The dp is from Basic Grey's Origins. Card stock is the lovely new green (the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger!) from GinaK , as is the sentiment. I coloured in the lilies with Copic markers.

Please go check out the rest of the team and see what they've done. There are four different lily images in the set, so there are a good variety of things to see. When you're done, head over to the AiFactory Challenge Blog for full details and upload your own creation by 11pm EST on Wednesday, March 18.

Great coloring, it looks just like the inspiration. I have been on vicadin before and it is hard to function. Hang in there.
