Stargazer Lilies

Seems we are getting into the fall weather pattern with cooler nights, and not quite so hot days. Leaves are turning, and it's getting time to empty the flower pots and pick up the garden art.  I can handle that.
I've had this little scrap of  DP floating around my table for awhile now, just begging me to use it.  I was looking at this package of 'canvas' ready to color stickers, and it popped into my head to use the lilies with this lily sticker, colored like stargazer lilies. So......
I will enter this into the challenge over at Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes.
I will also enter it in the following challenges:
Fab-n-Funky #183, Opposites Attract -Use 2 colors from the opposite sides of the color wheel (pink & green).
Dutch Dare - Birthday Wishes
Flutterby Wednesday- Anything goes-with butterfly or fairy.

I know this looks more peachy in this photo, but it is more in the pink range. I water colored the sticker with Momento markers, Rich Cocoa (frame), Rhubarb Stalk, Bamboo leaves & New Sprout. I mounted the sticker on a green die-cut (SB Timeless Rectangles, Bazzil CS). I added a small green butterfly (SU Papillion Potpourri) Stamped with Memento Bamboo Shoots, colored with Copics and punched with SU Bitty Butterfly punch. Added a  piece of Offray ribbon, and 3 green rhinestones. Stamped greeting with Versa Mark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder (S.U.). Quick and simple! (And I finally used that piece of DP!)

Your comments are always welcome.
