Welcome to Lily and the Lotus.
I am Susan S. and I am happy you stopped in.
My first piece is a wonderful art challenge given to us by Lori with  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EverythingWendyVecchi/
My piece is simple. I used studio 490 'Art by the Number LCS 005. A Tim tree die cut and numbers from Tim Holtz  grunge board digits and punctuation.I used barn door stain and distress ink tea dye,picket fence stain and white dabber.
I added a few pearl embellishments .
I hope you like it.
How do you like my tree topper?I love the Blossom Bucket pieces.
Thanks for peeking at my challenge 56 piece.
