You are So Special!!

Happy Tuesday night, y'all! Hope everyone is doing well. Things are finally getting back to normal around here. Everyone is finally back at school (yay!!). The sun came out today too, so in honor of the sun, I decided to make a sunny, spring-y card!

I used a brand-spankin' new stamp from the So Special set from Magnolia. This is Tilda with Small Gift.
I don't tend to used lots of yellow, but this dress just begged for yellow!! The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I distressed all of the edges with a distresser tool and inked around all of the edges. The papers are from an old DP set - Chloe's Closet from MM. I added lots of Stickles to the flowers, dress, tiny gift, and swirl. I used 2 leaf punches that can be found here.
Copics Used:
E11, 00, 000, R30, E57, 55, 53, 50, E37, 35, 33, 30, Y23, Y21, Y0000, B95, 93, 91, W5, 3, 00


Supplies:
Stamps - Tilda with Small Gift, sentiment (Hero Arts)
Paper - Cardstock (SU), Chloe's Closet DP (MM)
Ink - Memento, Copics, SU Ink
Accessories - Stickles, Nestabilities, Fern Punch, Distresser Tool, Sponge, Flowers (WOC), swirl punch (EK Success), leaf punch

Have a wonderful night!!

Beautiful card Tori! It makes me happy. Love all the details....distressed edges and stickles. We're supposed to get 10 inches of snow in OK in the wee hours of the morning so seeing some sunny colors on your card is cheering my up! Hugs, Rosemary

Pam said...

Your card is gorgeous Tori. I tend not to use yellow much because I never get the soft girly, springy yellow you achieved. Mine is usually Big Bird Yellow! Love everything about it.
Hugs from Indiana,
