I run to you....

I just finished up this cutie card for a friend of mine who moved away. I wanted to send her something special to let her know that she is missed, and this is the perfect card to send! I inked up Running Tilda from the new Butterfly Dreams collection (LOVE that collection). Isnt she a doll??!!
I used the new Butterfly garden paper by Pink Paislee. I love the vintage, soft, muted colors of this paper pack, just so beautiful.
I paper pieced Tildas dress and colored the rest with copics:
Skin - E000, E00, R32, E11
Hair - E57, E53, E50
Dress - Paper Pieced, then shaded with W5 and Y28
Socks - C00, 0
Shoes - E57, E55, E53, E50
Basket - E55, E53, E51, R02, Y15, G24, G20
I added some Wild Orchid Crafts roses. I used a white Gardenia which I sprayed with Carmel Apple Glimmer mist, white 25mm roses which I sprayed with Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist, 15mm white roses which I sprayed with Sage Glimmer Mist, 15mm brown roses, and 4mm yellow rose buds.
I thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my creation.
