For my card, I followed the sketch from Wild Orchid Crafts and I love the way it turned out on this card. I'm also very excited because my first order of Wild Orchid flowers FINALLY came in! I'm not patient enough for these trans-continental orders to arrive!!!! I used one of my new stamps, Tilda with Balloon and one of my new punches, Martha Stewart's Swirling Lace punch. The color scheme is again one of my favorites, brown, pink, and cream. The pink and white glitter paper is SEI's sweet nothings and the rose paper is from Paper Pizzaz. I chose to make Tilda's dress out of the same glittery paper to tie it all together. I alos used a corner stamp, distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress Ink, the flower treatment is Wild Orchid and I added a beautiful stick pin sent to me by one of my friends. All right, enough gibberish, here's my card - I hope you like it!
