My Day Lilies are not blooming yet, but I was inspired to use a set from Heartfelt Creations called Sunrise Lilies released in February 2016. The HC paper collections include a number of panels just for card making, so I decided to use a pre-made card front with wonderful printed layers. The Sunrise Lilies were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Fantastix in Versa Magic Mango Madness and Persimmon. The leaves are colored in Tea Leaves and Sage. The stamens are die cut from black cardstock and the tips are touched with the smallest amount of On Point Glue. The tips are then dipped in Recollections Flock in Coral followed by Art Institute Ultra Fine in Sedona Sun. I tied a section of sage ribbon from my stash in to a double looped bow using the Bows-It-All-V2 to finish the embellishments. The "Thanks a bunch" is also by Heartfelt Creations from their Heartfelt Expressions sentiment stamp set from December 2010. It is stamped in Versa Magic Tea Leaves with a bit of Versa Magic Sage lightly sponged over the top. After adhering the card panel to the card base I inked the edges in Tea Leaves. Even with shaping and assembling the flowers the card took about 30 minutes to complete.
