The Most Beautiful View

Here is a card I created for a few different challenges.  I got to play with some of my favorite things: buttons, ribbons, flowers, dies...the list goes on and on.  

I just love this Paper Shelter image.  She's so adorable!  And I just love the gathered skirt!  I colored her using Copics (except for the mirror glass, which is colored with a silver Spica marker, then covered with a clear glaze pen to give it a smooth sheen).  The design paper is from DCWV's The Sweet Stack. I made the lillies using the McGill Paper Blossom punches.  So much fun, but takes quite a while to put together since all of the petals are punched out separately, decorated, curled, then glued together.  Then I spritzed the entire flower with Tsukineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz in silver.  When the flowers were dry I added a blue gem to the center.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter #1: Buttons and Bows
Southern Girls Challenge: Blue and Chocolate
Fab 'n' Funky: Make Your Own (I made my own flowers)

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!  =)
