Make a Wish

I LOVE this new stamp, Tilda with a Heart. I think she is my new fave. (I know, I love them all, and my fave just keeps on changing). But, I do love her. At first, I thought I would not use her that often as she has a heart, so it must be mostly for Valentine's day. HOWEVER, I have used her here for a birthday card, and I think she looks fantastic!!!
I went with some of my favorite colors, brown, pink, and cream. I love this color combo, as the soft colors just blend well together. The papers I used were from my K&Company HUGE stack, which I jut LOVE. I followed the sketch over at Just Magnolia, and really like how this card came together.
I colored this cutie-pie with copics -
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress & Socks - R85, R83, R81, RV10 (I added clear Spica pen to the ruffle for some shimmer)
Shoes - E40, E41, E42, E43
Heart - RV02, RV23, R0000 ( I also added clear Spica pen to the heart for shimmer)
Background - W00, W1, W3, B0000
The sentiment, Make a Wish (By The Greeting Farm), was stamped in the upper right corner with Walnut Stain distress ink. It was not dark enough, so I went over it with my black Spica pen. This completely darkened it up, and added a little sparkle. Just perfect!!
Here is the artsy view of my card. This view also shows off all of the sparkle I added to this card. The flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts, pink roses, light brown cherry blossoms, and chocolate brown mini roses. I added Stardust stickles to the top edges of the petals. I also punched out leaves with my Martha Stewart punch to finish off the flower arrangements.
I finished off the inside of the card with more of the design paper and a pink silk ribbon and bow. There is lots of room for a personal note and sentiment. I just love how this entire card came together.
