May Guest Designer for Oldie But A Goodie

This card won Top 5 at Fussy and Fancy Friday!!

I was so excited to be chosen as this months Guest Designer over at Oldie But A Goodie! It is so much fun to go through some older stamps that have pushed to the back for new ones. I love pulling them out and inking them up to play! This week at Oldie But A Goodie, the challenge is Say it with Flowers! EASY PEASY!!! I love pulling out my flowers!
I decided to ink up this cutie Lili of the Valley stamp, Rosie Posy. Isnt she just adorable??!!!! LOVE her!!! I teamed her up with some flowery Prima papers from the Annalee collection. LOVE this paper pad, so pretty and springy colors. Just lovely.
I colored up this cutie with copics:
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E35, E31, YR20
Skirt - RV17, RV14, RV13, RV10, RV000
Shirt - RV000, RV02, 0
Socks - C1, C00, 0
Shoes - E55, E53, E50
Flower Bouquet - Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00, RV17, RV13, G20, G24
Here is the artsy view of my cad. I used some vintage lace that I had in my stash, along with some hit pink silk ribbon. The flower arrangement is all Wild Orchid Crafts flowers - White Gardenia, Hot pink 25mm roses, yellow cherry blossoms, light pink 15mm roses. Behind the roses, I bunched up some pink tulle that I recycled off of a present I received for my birthday. LOVE how it turned out. The pink butterflies were punched with my Martha Stewart Monarch punch, and I added some pearls to the butterfly centers and the corners of the card.

I hope you will pull out your older stamps and have fun with your flowers this week with us at Oldie But A Goodie.
