DS4J #66: Women are Special

We will be celebrating Mother's Day on 12 May this year and for a change my Mom will actually be with us then. Mmmm, maybe we should plan something  :D.
Here's my card for the new Digistamps4Joy Challenge: WOMEN ARE SPECIAL.

I printed the lilies out twice. On the 2nd copy I colored the flowers and cut them out to pop onto the bottom ones for dimension. The bottom lilies were cut out as a unit and then glued to the white background. I shaded the doily before gluing the circle panel.

DS4J; Day Lily
Sentiment: GinaK Designs
Dies: Spellbinders circles, Nellie Snellen
Frame embossed with Spellbinders impressabilities "Flourish"
Background DP: Prima "Melody" (quite an old paper pack... but it had hints of a lily on it! See bottom edge where it's peeking out)
The white with silver background paper for the lily is from a specialized paper that my sister bought years ago at a hobby expo. She had a whole pack of different designs that she passed along...)

Playing along: 2W, P1/15 Use doily/cake napkins M, P1, 2E(daily) Anything goes with flowers (must have 3 or more) M, P1 - Mother's or for a female
