Never Too Old for a Hug - LOTV

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry I haven't been around for so long! I've been so busy that I've barely had time to craft and ended up taking an unplanned break from blogging, as a result. I've finally had some crafting time though so I'm here today with my second May card for the Lili of the Valley Design Collective. I've used the adorable Never Too Old for a Hug (coloured with Inktense pencils) with Promises papers (hand-stitched). I've also used:
Tag (with Pion Design letters) - LOTV Sentiment Tags
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Lace, seam binding, twine - Ribbon Girl

Butterfly (with added Milled Lavender Distress Ink) - Dutch Doobadoo
Shabby bark star - Live and Love Crafts
Frantage: Aged Silver, Chunky White, Vintage Lilac Tinsel Embossing Powder

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you're all well.
