Mojo Monday 360 and Doodle Pantry Lily Card

My hubby and I met years ago where he was a chemist at Lily Industries (not the pharmaceutical company). I was just their summer temp since my regular occupation was teaching, which I loved. Three years later when we married, I carried a bouquet of Oriental lilies in honor of our meeting place. I also planted many lilies in our yard to remind us of that time and place of our meeting. Years later his company was sold to another company, so the name changed. This week is the official closing of his lab, which was moved to another state, so I made this card to give to one of his co-workers as a little "good-bye."

One of the lilies I planted was called "Mona Lisa" in honor of our daughter, Lisa. I colored the Doodle Pantry Easter lily to look like the beautiful lilies I love. This week's Mojo Monday sketch was perfect for the card. The white panel is embossed with chevrons. I added CTMH silver shimmer trim and a thistle diagonal striped ribbon with a glitter button on top. The background papers are from CTMH retired Lollydoodle. The lily petals were recolored with Copics: RV00, R81, R83, R85, RV04, RV25.

I used the following challenges to make my card:
Frosted Designs Friday Challenge - Chevrons
Just Add Ink #228 - Color Combo

Mojo Monday #360 - Sketch

Paper Creators Crafts #28 - Bows, Bling, Blooms
The Cutting Edge Challenge #8 - picture inspiration + die cuts - I used Spellbinders Floral Ovals.
