Guest Designer spot with Tilda

I'm so excited to be a guest designer for Paper Crafting Journey today.  {If you are looking for my weekly post for My Time Made Easy's Pretty Patterns post, I'm afraid it will be late.  Between internet problems, photoshop problems (needed for the digi stamps) and not feeling well, I'm running behind schedule.  Thank you for your patience.}  In the meantime, let's talk about this fun card I made for Paper Crafting Journey's challenge!   This week's challenge is a sketch and a theme:  Go Girly!  Do you think my card is girly enough?  lol

(click on images to enlarge)

I used Tilda with Hawaiian flower.  I love the flower in her hair and all the butterflies around her.  My daughter loved butterflies too so this stamp makes me think of her and feel closer to her.   I stamped the dress onto the patterned paper, paper pieced it and adhered it to the image.  The rest of the image is colored with copics.  I added Diamond stickes on the dress, butterflies and flowers.  The photo below shows all the shiny goodness.

Lots of layers and embellishments on this card, which I love to use!

Thank you for stopping by!  Don't forget to check out the other designers on Paper Crafting Journey and join in the fun! 

Here's the sketch and remember, the theme is GO GIRLY!  

Other challenges I'm entering this card in:
Make it Monday

I'll have another post for you later today (hopefully) with MTME's Pretty Patterns sketch challenge.
