House of Gilli Design Team - Recipe

Here is my card for the first House of Gilli Challenge!!! How EXCITING!!! I am so happy to share my creation with you all. I chose to use Victorian Gilli which can be purchased at Stamping Scrapping, along with the other adorable Gilli stamps!!!
The challenge this week has been set by my lovely teamie, Suzanne Dean, and she chose a recipe. The recipe is 3 patterned papers, 2 die cuts/punches, and 1 form of glitter. I chose to make an easel card for my card this week. I LOVE easel cards, they are interactive, and easy to make.
I used K&Company Classic K paper stack. I LOVE the vintage and soft colors of this paper. I added stickles around the edges of each panel to give tons of shimmer, I hope the camera picks up some of it.
I used Victorian Gilli for my image this week. Isnt she so fancy??!!! I colored her up with copics.
Skin- Eoo, E00, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress - R83, R81, R00, RV10, RV11
Hat - B35, B33, B31, R000, R01, R02, G20, G24
I added LOTS of stickles to this little cutie to give her lots of sparkle.
Here is the artsy view of my card!! the two punches I used are the Tilda Lace Magnolia Die for my panel border, and I used my Martha Stewart leaf punch to add leaves to the flower arrangement. Speaking of flowers, I used some white roses, that I painted with glimmer mist in Vintage Pink, and added white Cherry blossoms to even out the arrangement.
The inside of my card was finished off with more of the design paper, a pink silk bow, and another rose with leaf punch (which also serves as the stand for the easel).
I hope you hop on over to Stamping Scrapping and pick up some Gilli stamps for yourself. They are adorable!!! Then come on over and join us at House of Gilli for bi-weekly challenges!
