What is black, white, and pink all over????

This card made Top 3 at 7 Kids College Fund!!!!

Why it's TILDA, of course!!! I love the bold colors of this card. I do not usually work with this color combo, but these papers were perfect, and I love the way this looks!
I used some DCWV papers from my stash for this card, the graphic patterns were just so awesome, I love the different patterns together. I paired them up with Running Tilda from the Butterfly Dreams collection, one of my fave tilda's of all. And that pink and white gingham bow is just to die for! It matched the paper colors perfectly, it was like it was meant to be!!!
I colored Tilda with copics
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
Hair and Shoes- C9, C7, C5, C3
Dress and Socks - RV17, RV14, Rv13, RV10, RV00
Basket - E33, E31, E50
Grass - G40, G21, G24, YG03, YG63
I used Flower Soft in Heather on the flowers in her basket. I love the texture this gives them and makes them pop right off the page.
Here is the artsy view of my card. Of course, I added Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to it! I used white gardenia, white 25mm roses which I sprayed with Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist, white 15mm roses which I sprayed with Black Gold Glimmer Mist, a hot pink cherry blossom, and white 4mm closed roses. I also added a hand-made butterfly stick pin that I made. I love making stick pins to match my cards, so easy and so much fun!!!
I finished off the inside of my card with more of the fab-O design paper and gingham ribbon.
