Love is in the Air

Love is in the air. I spent the day yesterday at the Scrapbook Expo, then dinner with my family for my sister-in-law's birthday. I LOVE both things, crafty shopping, and my family. So, I am feeling the LOVE today!!!
Also, I just LOVE this paper, image, ribbon, die cut, etc, of this card I created. So, over here, Love Is In The Air!!!!
I used my Basic Grey curio paper pad for this card, which I adore! I love the rich colors of this paper, and the natural distressing it has, it is so pretty. The image I chose was Tilda Spreads Love from the new You're So Special collection from Magnolia. I love this cutie image, she is just so unique, and I think she is adorable.
I colored her up with copics.
Skin - E00, E000, R20, E11
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Shirt - RV10, R81, R000, RV000
Pants - E27, E25, E35, E31, E50
Boots - W00, W1, W3, R83, R85
Heart Bouquet - R81, RV10, R83, E41, E42, E43
Background - B0000, W00, W1, W3
I added Stardust stickles to the lace on her shirt and the heart glitter for some added shimmer.

Here is the artsy view of my card. All of my embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used some of my FAVE new seam binding, and lots of flowers. I used cream 25mm roses, coral 20mm roses, dark brown cherry blossoms, and mini light pink 15mm roses. I added some punched branches and stardust stickles to EVERYTHING to finish it all off. IRL, it is SUPER sparkly!
The sentiment I printed out on my computer and then used my Magnolia Vintage Tag Doohickey die to cut it out. I then used some silk ribbon to tie it off.
Here is the finished off inside of the card. The same silk ribbon was added to finish off this simple inside.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Magnolia Down under - Flower Power
