Tilda in Chocolate and Blue

Good Morning!
I fell in love with this designer paper from Stampin Up called Parisian Breeze. It's simply gorgeous stuff! I am embarrassed to admit that I am a HUGE paper hoarder. I have several unopened packages of discontinued paper that I am finally getting around to using and I am having a blast. It's like Christmas all over again as I finally open these packages of paper from my stash:-)

This sweet Tilda is colored in browns and blues with my Copic markers. The flowers were from a sprig of spring flowers that I bought a while ago in the floral department and I simply removed the blooms from the branch! (I definitely need to purchase some of the beautiful flowers that I've seen on numerous cards!) I added a little blue gem to the center of each flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
Julie

I think in order to be a stamper you have to have a little OCD (obssesive compulsive disorder) because we all obssesively collect everything!!! LOL Your card is wonderful, love your dp too. Great job of coloring her. She's one of my all-time favorites. Myrna

I cannot say a word, as I am a fellow paper hoarder. Hello, pot, meet kettle! LOL. I have made a pact with myself that I am not allowed to put any new paper packs away now until I use at least 2 sheets out of them. This has not stopped me from buying paper, and neither has the huge amount I have in my stash. Anyway, your card is so pretty. I love the rhinestones in the flowers, as well as the blue and brown together. Very sweet! Gina L
