For a Sweet Friend Mingle Card

Happy Tuesday, y'all! It is really a pretty day today here in FL - yesterday, it rained cats & dogs yesterday, so some sunshine is definitely welcome!

I made this card for my Magnolia-licious May Mingle partner, Line Cinq-Mars. I really hope she likes it! The May Mingle theme was 'flowers'. This was my very first time to participate in a mingle and I hope I did it justice.
I used Tilda with Flowing Hair and Spring Tree - both available at Magnolia-licous! I used some Basic Grey Sultry papers along with some Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss card stock. The sentiment comes from Amy R's Friend Sentiments set. My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the fern punch is Martha Stewart. The punches used on the sentiment are Stampin Up and the bling is Kaiser Craft.
Here is a close-up of Ms. Tilda. I colored her with Copics and cut her out. It is hard to tell, but I added some Stickles to the flowers in her basket. This card is very 'blingy' actually. I also added Stickles to all of the flowers on the tree and around the tips of the paper flowers as well! I masked off the tree and airbrushed the background on with my Copic ABS. Tilda is popped up with some 3-D foam tape. Copics are listed below.
Hope you have a great day! ~Tori
