ABC Challenge - S is for Shabby Chic

Time for another fun challenge at ABC Challenges today. This time we are up to S is for Shabby Chic. Our sponsor for today's challenge are Live and Love Crafts. Here is my card.

For my card  I printed my image on Kryogen card stock and then coloured it with my copics. Then I cut around the image using Stampin' Up Oval framelits and mounted it on Nestabilities Floral Oval that I sponged with blushing bride and Sahara sand inks.

The Copic colours I used are:  skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, hair:E37, E33, E31, dress and bow:R0000, R81, R83, R85 picnic basket: B0000, B91, B93, G20, G82, YG23, YG25, YR0000, YR21, YR24, Y26, Y23, Y21, E55, E53.

I used a Martha Stewarts around the page punch to create a border on my base card, and layered it with papers, lace and a pretty butterfly die cut from my stash. 

I then added a bouquet of beautiful flowers, tied with a pink seam binding and added a charm.  Here is a closer look at this delightful Tilda from the new Pink Lemonade collection, Summer Buzz Tilda:
