House of Gilli - Ribbon and Pearls

It is my turn to host our challenge this week over at House of Gilli, and I have chosen the theme of ribbon and pearls. I LOVE these Gilli stamps, and so many of them can be used for multiple occasions. I have chosen Jeans Gilli for this weeks card. I just LOVE her, she is one of my faves.
I used my new K&Company Julienne paperpad for this card. I love the soft, vintage feel of these papers, so pretty. The designs are just gorgeous. I loved these papers, as the soft blues are perfect for Jeans Gilli.
I used white Grossgrain ribbon for my ribbon, and added tons of prima pearl swirls, as well as large adhesive pearls to the corners.
I colored Gilli with copics
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E25, E31, 50
Shirt - G99, YG91, blender
Pants - B95, B91
Shoes - E41, E40, E42
I used my Flower Border stamp to stamp around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress ink, then sponged the edges.
I added TONS of Wild Orchid flowers to the arrangement too. I used white Gardenias, blue 25mm roses, and two-toned blue 15mm roses. I also used my Martha Stewart frond punch for the branches.
I finished off the inside of the card very simply with more of the design paper and a simple ribbon.
I hope you will join us this week over at House of Gilli for our challenge this week - Ribbon and Pearls. Cant wait to see what you create.
