Here is my first card for the Midnight Madness Design Team!!!! I love this week's sketch, dont you??? I sure hope that you play along with us, and follow me on this new journey!!!!!
For my card I used this adorable Gilli Stamp, Florist Gilli, which can be found at Stamping Scrapping, isnt she adorable!!!!!! I just love this image, and thought it was perfect for a Thank you card.
I secured the large pink ribbon in the corner with glue dots, then crinkled it down the edges of the card, securing a few more times, to give a ripple impression. I tied a small white button with white floss, then sewed it to the center of the bow as the finishing touch!
I used blue, pink, and white buttons from my stash as the accents for this card. I usually do not use buttons, but as the sketch suggested it, I thought I would give it a go, and LOVE how it came out. I also distressed the background that Gilli is on with Victorian Velvet distress ink, gotta love distress ink!!!!
I colored Gilli with copics:
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - Y11, YR20, E53, E35
Shirt - R81, R83, R85
Pants - B91, B95, B97
Shoes - W1, W3, W5
Basket - E33, E51, E35, E37
Flowers - R11, R13, G20, G21, G24
