Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge Anything but a square

Hello everyone, it's time for another Lili of the Valley challenge. Our challenge is to create a card that is anything but a square. Well, mine is not very creative, but at least it's not a square! I chose to use a Spellbinder label to die cut the entire card. 
I used 'Get Well Bunny' for my card, and instead of Copics or colored pencils, I chose to go old school. I started out water coloring my images with Tombow markers back in the day, and I felt like pulling them out of storage again. Actually, I used my Tombows and SU markers and a water brush.

I printed the sentiment from my computer and die cut it with Papertrey Ink's banner die. Since I didn't have yellow ribbon to match the colors of my papers, I quickly dyed some seam binding with Candlelight Glimmer Mist. I love how quickly I can dye ribbon to custom match anything! Sometimes I use reinkers, alcohol ink sprays, Twinkling H2O's, anything to create a custom color. I pop the seam binding in the microwave at half power for a few minutes, and in no time at all, it's dry. If I want wrinkled ribbon, I leave it as is, if not, I press it with a warm iron. Simple!

We'd love to have you join us on the challenge blog, create your own card following the guidelines and you could win some LOTV stamps.
