Calla Lilies


I bet you can't wait to see this set :)  I have always found Calla lilies to be a most elegant, regal and lovely flower.  And paired with these beautiful heartfelt sentiments of support during difficult times, it's a stunning combination that is sure to express heartfelt encouragment.


How beautiful is a white calla lily, wouldn't you say?  I subtly colored this little ribboned bundle of lilies with some soft blue/green shades and gray to give the white some depth.  The papers are from the MME Sunshine Pack. I've added some gorgeous ribbons, and ruffled satin , some scoring and some layering with my dies, as well as using the Classic Bracket Edgeabilities on the borders.


I love the simple elegance of it.  

Now run on over to the rest of the Design Team, I know you will love the elegant and comforting creations they've made.
