Dancing for Love

I LOVE all the stamps from the new release, Your So Special, by Magnolia. Arnt they all so SUPER cute!!! With this card, I have used Dancing Party Tilda. I dont see her used that often in blogland, and I just think she is adorable.
For this card, I used one of my new paper packs by October Afternoon, Thrift Shop. I LOVE the vintage colors and patterns of this paper pack, so pretty. I went with the color combo of blue and yellow. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone more and work with different colors and combinations. I used cream cardstock and Kraft cardstock as matting, and love the vintage look it gives.
I colored this cutie with copics
Skin - E00, E000, E11, R20
Hair - E31, E53, YR20, Y11
Dress and socks - B97, B95, B91, B000
Shoes - E40, E41, E43
Shadow - E50, W1, W00, W3
I used lots of my new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, blue 25mm roses, yellow cherry blossoms, and blue two-tone 15mm open roses. I also punched out some branches with my Martha Stewart punch and distressed them with Stormy Sky distress ink. The butterflies were punched with my Monarch Martha Stewart punch out of some of the yellow patterned paper. I used my B97 copic to color the pearls that were added to the card, as they were white, but I wanted them to be blue to match the card.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
