I had SO much fun making this card. I loved coloring all these images together to create this cute Spring scene.I used some October Afternoon Thrift Shop Papers. I love the bright, yet vintage feel of the papers. I know a lot of the papers were covered up in this card, but really, they are gorgeous. I chose to stick with the yellow and turquoise, as I love the color combo, and it is just such a happy scene. I added a white paper lace doily to the background for another layer of interest. I followed the sketch at Magnolia-licious for this card. Although, it is a bit hard to see under all the layers, but it is there, I promise!!!
For the scene, I used three different Magnolia Stamps; Romantic Window, Tilda in Butterfly Dress, and Magnolia with Butterfly. I just love how this scene turned out, isnt it adorable. Just looks like a perfect spring day of picking flowers for Tilda and her puppy! I colored the scene with copics (too many to list, sorry), and added stickles onto the flowers for some added bling .
Here is the artsy view of my card. I added a sentiment circle from the Lili of the Valley Dreamy Days set, which I used yellow stickles and copics on. I love this stamp set, the sentiments are AWESOME!! I also added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (duh, it wouldnt be one of my cards without some flowers! LOL). I used white 25mm wild roses, which I painted with Patina Glimmer Mist to match, yellow two toned 25mm roses, yellow cherry blossoms, yellow 15mm roses, and white 15mm roses again painted with Patina. I also punched out some turquoise branches with my Martha Stewart Frond Punch. I have been making stick pins lately, so I also added a hand-made stick pin to the flower arrangement! This is going to be my new addiction, I can tell. It is so easy, and super pretty to add to cards!!!
I finished off the inside of the card with more of the gorgeous design paper and a pretty Marigold Silk ribbon and bow. There is tons of space for a personal note!
I hope you like my little scene. Thanks so much for stopping by and as always, your comments are very much appreciated!
