This card made Top 3 at Lili of the Valley Challenge blog.
This card won Oh La La at My Sheri Crafts

I LOVE Lili of the Valley stamps, they are just the CUTEST things, and so detailed and fun to color. For this card, I wanted to stick with my FAVE colors for the LOTV challenge, which are cream, black, and pink. I chose Coffee Break for this card, and just think this image is precious!!
I followed the sketch over at Wild Orchid Crafts for the layout, and think it turned out so stinkin cute. I used the patterned paper from Webster's Pages Life's Portrait. I love the soft colors of this paper. The patterns go together so wonderfully. The papers are so cheerful and springy. I just love the soft color palette, so pretty.
I colored up these cuties with copics (I will try to remember all the colors I used)
Skin - E00, E000, E11, R20
Clothes - R02, R01, R00, R0000, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9
Table and Stools - W5, W3, W5, W3, W1 (Silver Spica Pen for some sparkle)
Background - W1, W00, B0000

Here is the artsy view of my card. I accented the card with some butterflies punched with my Monarch Martha Stewart punch. (LOVE that thing). I then added some black rhinestone bling to the bodies.
I wanted to show a close up of the flowers I used in the arrangement. All the flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts, LOVE them. I used white roses 25mm (which I painted with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Coral Starburst Stain), black 15mm roses, and six white 4mm closed roses in white. I finished of the arrangement with some punched branches with my Martha Stewart Punch, and some Prima black bling swirls.
The inside of the card is finished off with more of the design paper and matting. I used one of my Crafty Secrets stamps for the inside sentiment, and more black rhinestone bling.
