Blue Tilda with Straw Hat

For some reason I am on a blue kick lately. I just LOVE my K&Company Julienne papers, and there is a ton of blue patterns in this stack, so that might be why. I used Tilda with Straw Hat from the new Butterfly Dreams collection, which I am just totally in LOVE with!!! I TRULY want EVERY SINGLE stamp in that collection, they are all so super adorable.
For this card I decided to make an easel card. I LOVE making them, they are super easy, and interactive for the recipient. I love these papers so much, and think they just go so perfectly together and coordinate for spring cards. Lots of flowers and pearls were added, which makes this card super feminine and pretty.
I used the Doohickey Doily Flowers die to punch out flowers from the design paper, then added some small 15mm Wild Orchid roses to the centers. I also added two 25mm roses. I glimmer misted the flowers with Vanilla Breeze Glimmer Mist to match the papers.
I colored up Tilda with copics:
Skin - E00, E000, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress & Socks - E43, E42, E40
Hat - E43, E44, E42, E40, B97, B93, B91
Shoes - E25, E33, E31, E50
Flower and Butterfly - G24, G20, Y23, Y26, Y21, B02, E25
I used my Tim Holtz Swirl Stamp to stamp around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then distressed the edges.
The inside of the card Is finished with more of the pretty design paper, and a blue silk bow. I also used more of the Doohickey Doily flowers as the anchor for the Easel. There is lots of room for a personal sentiment to be added.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Anything Goes - Pearls
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Tons of Texture
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Die cuts and Ribbon
Simon Says - spring Colors
Paper Sundaes - Spring Blossoms
