Midsummer Birthday Wishes

This card made Top 3 at Totally Papercrafts!!!

Here is a new card I just finished. I used so many new items, I was just so excited to break them out!!! I used a new stamp, Midsummer Tilda, and just love her, she is just adorable!!!!
I followed the sketch at Simon Says Stamp for this week, and I absolutely LOVE how it came out. I used my new Basic Grey Curio paper pad. I think I am obsessed with this paper, the designs are so beautiful, I just love it!!!
the pink silk bow is one that I altered. It was white, and I died it with my new Starburst stain dabber from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I LOVE how it came out!
I also used my newer Tilda lace doohickey die to add an edge to the thiner layer, and I LOVE that thing, it is my new fave.
Here is the artsy view of my card. I added a flower arrangement to the top corner. I just got some new roses from iamroses.com, and I painted the large ones with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist, the medium ones are from my friend Mindy, which I was fortunate enough to win her blog candy, and the tiny ones are ones I found in my stash. I love the arrangement of colors just match perfectly with the colors of the card!
I colored this cutie with copics.
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E25, E57, E29
Dress - R000, R0000, R00, R01, R02, W1, W3
I also finished off the inside of the card with more of the designer paper and a couple of roses. I love how this just gives the card that finished look, and makes it ready to give away!
