Hope for Love

This card made Top 3 at Magnolia Stamp Lovers!!!!

A friend of mine is need of some support and Love, as she is going through a hard time right now, so I decided to make her this little card to brighten her day. I chose Tilda with a Heart, as I just love this stamp and wanted to show my friend that I love her and support her.
I used K&Company's gorgeous Julienne paper stack. I just love that they are making them in 6x6 now. This was a very different color combo than I usually use, but I loved working outside the box on this one, and the outcome is very pretty.
I colored Tilda with copics:
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E57, E55, E50
Dress - Y35, Y33, Y32, Y000, E25, E33, E50
Heart and Socks - Y11, Y13, Y15, Y000
Shoes - E25, E31, E50

I colored some white seam binding with Mustard Seed Glimmer Mist, and crinkled it up. I love the deep yellow of this color. I added a metal button to the center of the bow, and dangled a star charm using a vintage garment pin. The flower arrangement is all Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I used white 25mm roses which I painted with Mustard Seed Glimmer Mist, brown cherry blossoms, yellow and brown 15mm roses. I also punched out some fronds with my Martha Stewart punch for the branches. I added a Tim Holtz charm that says "Hope", and some Tim Holtz Film Strip to finish off the arrangement. A Tim Holtz Metal Corner is added to the opposite corner also.
The inside of the card was finished off simply with more of the design paper. I also used some the dyed Seam binding to tie a bow around the middle.
