Keepsake of Time

Good afternoon!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a good start!  The sun is finally shining again here.  Hope it stays that way for awhile!  I am popping in quickly to share a card I finished up for a few challenges I enjoy doing.  I have another busy week so I wasn't sure when else I'd be able to get my post in.
Here is my card:

My card base and mats are Bravo Burgundy and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Nature's Storybook collection.  The beautiful image is Lilleth from Delicious Doodles (Teresa Sherman).  It is also available as a digi from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bit of Stickles to the centers of the large open lilies and some Liquid Pearls to her hairpiece and earring.  The sentiment is from A Piece of Heart.  Sharon generously shared it as a freebie here.  A vintage-style, fabric flower and a spray of Wild Orchid Crafts Gypsophila finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I've got to run a couple of errands, then I'll be by for a visit.
