Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday, everyone~
I know all of us are a kind of busy this week (or maybe it's only me??) so I will try to keep this post quick and short ;)

The flower image I used for today's card is Multi Step Lily of the Valley from A Year of Thanks 2. I created the brick wall using the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. The only thing I did differently from the tutorial was I masked the lily when I stamped the script image from 3 Step Letters from the Past. Then I sponged around the lily to give the depth while the mask was still on.
The swirl images on the corners are stamped using Big & Bold Swashes.

These are the steps I did for the lily of the valley image:
(Lily of the valley) 5th - SU close to coca, 4th - SU garden green, 3rd - SU old olive, 2nd - SU kiwi kiss, 1st - kiwi kiss (1 x stamp off)
