Joyful wishes

This card won Top 3 at Creative Inspirations!!!

This is the second post for today, as I have been in cardmaking mode the last few days. I am loving the creative process right now, and have been trying new copic color combos, hair color combos, etc. I am LOVING it!!!
For this card I used K&Company Julienne paper pack. I am obsessed with these papers, soooo pretty. I did however chose a combo of colors that I do not usually work with, dark green and light pink. I love how it came out, but it is definitely out of my comfort zone! I paired the papers up with some Magnolia images, Tilda in Butterfly Dress and Stone pathway. I love these two images together, so gorgeous! Actually, the entire Butterfly Dreams collection is absolutely stunning, LOVE all the stamps in this collection. I also used the sentiment circles from Lili of the Valley, Dreamy Days set, which I cut out with my scalloped circles Nesties.
I colored my image with copics
Skin - E000, E00, R32
Hair - E18, E39, E99, YR23 (new hair color combo for me, what do you think?)
Dress and Socks - R32, R30, R0000
Shoes - E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Basket - E18, E15, E13
Flowers - G20, G24, BV0000, BV00, Y15
Pathway - W5, W3, W1, W00, G20, G24, YG63, YG03
I added Heather Flower Soft to the pathway flowers for some added color and texture.
I was completely inspired by the sketch this week at Sketch and Stash, it makes for such a gorgeous card layout. I added some lace behind the corner panels, along with some light pink silk ribbon. Then, of course, lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I used 20mm coral roses, green cherry blossoms, and cream aster daisies. I used my Martha Stewart Fond punch to punch out the leaves from Kraft cardstock. Pearls were added to the corners for the final finishing touch!
I finished off the inside of my card with more of the green and pink cardstock. Isnt it just gorgeous? I also used some light pink silk ribbon to finish it off.
