An Easter card

Hi!!! Here's an Easter card I made using a new PI, who I think is sold out at the moment - just tried looking for her on the site and couldn't find her! Anywho, I paper pieced her dress and colored everything else with copics. Used some dp I've had a while (yay!) and ruffled some ribbon around the edges. Nesties, sponging and brads finish it up. I made this using a sketch from MFT and for Flourishes release challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby MFT flower girl

Hi all! Here's my latest card for this months' MFT guest designer challenge - Shabby Chic! Whatcha think? Too much? I have to say that I had a BLAST making this card! It was one of those where you just keep thinking, "oooh, what else can I add??!". The card base is kraft and I used a combo of crate paper and MME designer papers. I pieced her cute little dress and jacket, the rest I colored with copics. The doily behind her is from a pack of Martha Stewart ones that I got a while back. I made the half rosette myself - *side note~I'm sure it's much easier with a die!* The little strip of scalloped kraft (next to the dp that's yellow with flowers) is from the MFT banner die. It's supposed to be the top part of the banner, but I thought it made a cute border. I added liquid pearls to it, though most of it is covered by everything else! ;) I cut out some kraft using the dizzy border dienamic from MFT and covered the middle with some lace trim. The main layer that she's on is up on dimensionals. I broke up the sentiment so that it fit in my Verve die. I poked a hole in one end, added some MFT twine, an antique button and a cute little key to dress it up even more. Lots of sponging on the sentiment die, the doily and the black-ish dp layer. I roughed up the edges of the main layer that she's on and the yellow flowery dp. Here's a close up of the sentiment detailing:

Oh, and don't forget the bling! I added some swirls to the left and two little ones on the upper right! Ok, too much description?!? Hehe, sorry! Hope you like it! I'd just be thrilled to PIECES if I won!!! ;) Oh, I almost forgot!!! I finishes the inside, too! Nothing too fancy, just another bit of dizzy border, matching dp and that sweet girl stamped off to the left.
