Lili of the Valley - Anything Goes

Ok I took the title as it stated and experimented and this is what I came up with and in a weird sort of way it works. I used my Cutterbee Bug to mark 5mm holes and then joined them up at opposites with a green marker pen to create a frame for the image, which was a rak of Jane I think. The flowers are prima and the brads making memories. The paper was from the bottom of my stash and the image cut out using Nesties. The sentiment is a peel off from stash.
Would be interested to see what people think.
