Going Green

OOOO, Saint Patty's day is coming up this week, so I wanted to make something green. I chose to use this sweet Will You Be My Valentine Tilda for this card. I am totally obsessed with the Your So Special collection of Magnolia stamps, they are all so adorable and can be used for so many different occasions!
I used some of my new Prima papers, Botanicals. the colors are just GORGEOUS of this paper pad, and I totally love them. They are super soft and shabby, and just perfect for the feel of this card. I used a bunch of Wild Orchid flowers 25mm white (Which I sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist), green cherry blossoms, and 15mm cream roses. I added some Prima leaves which I also sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist.
I colored Tilda with Copics.
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E53, E50
Dress and Socks - YG91, YG95, YG99, R02
Shoes - E35, E31, E50
Flowers - R02, R00, R01, R0000, Y15, Y00, R81
Background - W5, W1, W3, W00, BG00, BG10
I used Crushed Olive to stamp the Star Border around the circle then further distressed with Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo.
I added a paper doily that I inked with Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo to the background as the back circle. I used my Olive Vine Glimmer mist to turn the white silk ribbon into the green one shown here, and layered some vintage white lace underneath that. The charm is a Tim Holtz word charm, which I hung with a mini safety pin from the ribbon. I cut the lace border with my Magnolia Tilda Lace Doohickey Die, and the tag out with my Magnolia Vintage Tag Doohickey Die. I stamped the sentiment "Make a Wish" from a Greeting Farm set that I have. The finishing touch was some white pearls that were added to the corners of the patterned paper.
I finished off the inside of the card with more of the patterned paper and another vintage tag and more dyed ribbon. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is a Magnolia Stamp. I finished off the inside with another prima flower and some pearls. Easy Peasy!!!
