House of Gilli DT - Stripes and Bling & GDT Pile it On - More than one Bow

Happy Easter!!!!! I hope you are all having a great weekend with family and friends.
I have another card to share with you for two different challenges. This week at House of Gilli, we are challenging you to use stripes and bling on your project. Easy right? And, as my last week as a guest Designer at Pile It On, we are challenging you to use more than ribbon. This card came together perfectly for both challenges!!! Love when that happens!
Well, I had so much fun making this card for this week's challenges. I chose to go with some K&Company Julienne papers, so pretty. I paired the papers up with Fairy Gilli, whom just looks gorgeous is these dusty pinks, I think. When I heard the word BLING in the challenge, all I could think of was Fairy Gilli, too perfect!!! LOL.
I kept the card design pretty simple as I wanted to showcase the image and papers. I used some sage green ribbon to tie to large bows to either side of the card. I think it makes it look very feminine and pretty this way.
I colored Gilli with copics
Skin - E000, E00, R20, E11
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress and Wings - RV91, RV93, RV95, G24, G21, G20
I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the fur at the bottom of her dress to give more texture and interest.
Here is the artsy view of my card. I used lots of Recollection gem swirls for the BLING on the card. LOVE it!!
I hope you will join us this week at House of Gilli for our stripes and Bling challenge. Also, pop on over to Stamping Scrapping and pick up one of these adorable Gilli stamps for yourself, you will LOVE them, they are too cute and super versatile.
