Happy, Happy!!!

This card won Top 3 at Charisma Cards!!

Wow, the weekends always seem to go by so quickly, I ant believe it is Sunday night already. This weekend flew by, as I taught a Magnolia Card class on Saturday, worked Friday in San Diego doing wedding makeup, and my hubby had his first basketball tournament for the girls middle school team he coaches. SO, we were super busy, and I had VERY LITTLE craft time.
I did, however, have a few spare moments to finish up this super cute LOTV card I have been working on. Watcha think???
I followed the sketch over at LOTV challenge blog, and I just LOVE how this card turned out. I used some of the cute K&Company papers from the Sweet Nectar collection. I just love the bright colors, so cheerful and ready for spring! I used my Magnolia Tilda Lace Doohickey die to cut all of the lace trim borders, and added some to the outside corners of the card. I love this look, and is something a little different.
I used this cutie Lili of the Valley image, Rosie with Cake. I colored her with copics
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E43, E44, E41, E40
Shirt - R81, E83, R22, R20
Skirt and headband - R29, R27, R24, R22, R20
Shoes - E44, E43, E41, E40
Cake - C00, C1, C3, R22, R20, YG03, Y15, YR13
I cut Rosie out with my Lacey Circles Nestie die, and added VivaDecor Pearl pen around the edges. LOVE the way this looks.
I used lots of Wild Orchid flowers. White 25mm roses that I painted with Scarlet Glimmer Mist, pink and lime green cherry blossoms, pink two toned 15mm roses. I added lots of prima pearl swirls to the arrangements also. Pearls were added to the corners of the card as well, as I think it looks finished off that way.
The inside of the card was finished off simply with more of the design paper. I also used my Magnolia Vintage Tag Doohickey die to punch out the tag and stamped the sentiment, "Happy Birthday". I really enjoyed making this card. The colors are bright and cheerful on a rainy day!!!
