Hey there, my sweet friends!! I am so, sooooooooo excited today because this is my very first challenge as a Design Team member at Deep Ocean Challenge Blog!!

This fortnight's challenge theme is . . .

Ribbons & Lace!!

And our sponsor for this challenge is none other than . . . 

So . . . are you ready to see my newest creation?
It's no secret . . . I've loved Lili of the Valley images since I first discovered them several years ago. And I'm so excited that I can use any images I want . . . LOTV, Hanglar & Stanglar, Magnolia, and Saturated Canary . . . as well as my favorite Sugar Nellie, Mo Manning, and Sassy Cheryl images! That's the beauty of Deep Ocean Challenges . . . you can use any images . . . or no images at all . . . as long as you follow the challenge theme! Yayyyyy!! OK . . . so, as I was saying . . . this image is called "Meant to Be" and is available HERE at LOTV! Here's a close-up . . .
I made this card for my husband's eldest daughter who recently got married!! I just  thought this image screamed "LOVE" . . . so it seemed perfect for a wedding card! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
