Punch It Up with Lili of the Valley and Mojo Monday and Papertake Weekly. Alwight?

I'm so ashamed.  I have at least 9 beautiful Lili of the Valley images. Some of them I have owned for over a year and whereas I use the sentiment stamps quite often, none of the image stamps have ever seen my ink.  
Papertake Weekly have an "anything goes" theme with an option for all white  with just one other colour excluding hair and skin.  I've actually gone for the "anything goes" but my card has a lot of white and just two colours with no fur colour and only the teeniest bit of pink for the skin on bunny's cheeks and in his ear. 
I have used the "sketch" over at Mojo Monday, reducing the number of scalloped panels to three instead of four and making a square as opposed to a rectangular card, and I am also entering my card into LOTV who want us to "Punch It Up", using dies and punches.
I cut the scallops for my Cuttlebug embossed panels with a new EK Success punch and mounted them on some green card cut with a more lacey scalloped EK Success punch. The image is cut with a Nestie, mounted on a more frilly Nestie.  I inked over the embossed panels to make them more pronounced and coloured my image with Copics before adding some ribbon and Craftworks candy.

This is simply adorable. This turned out to be a great sketch to highlight the stamp. I have that LOTV stamp too, however I haven't been able to create anything that will show is off so well as you have.

Well done!!!
