Yes, it's sad but true. Lily Pad is going away. They will be leaving their site up but no more new news. I for one am so sad to see them go.

I colored the images with my Stampin' Up! markers and a dauber. Added highlights with a white gel pen. The dotted Ranger Liquid Pearls to make the flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push t…
