Finally, a Lilly of the Valley image...

Hi everybody,
I am sharing this card with you with much excitement and joy...
I bought a few Lilly of the Valley stamps back over a year ago when they were still very new in this country. I was so excited to get some because I just loved their beautiful creations. Now they have so much more and I am very excited for how their business has grown.

Anyway, I was really intimidated to try them. I started a few times but somehow I could never get the image colored decently. I see all that beautiful coloring that crafters do on their projects and I just don't seem to have the talent to make them look right. I think that what I need is the right product for the job. So I finally bought some DerWent pencils, but they are too dark for these small images.  HELP please!!! If you have any suggestions for me, I would surely welcome them. I really want to be able to be comfortable with coloring images.

So here's my card and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. The image is not as lovely as you ladies would do, but it's a start. And hopefully, if I get some helpful hints, maybe you will see some better colored images coming up.

I have entered this card into these challenges:
