Lily

I loved making this card, it´s my first tent card (I found the tutorial here) and I´m very pleased with the result. In general the card is easy to make and so nice to look at, I´m ejoying a lot making these 3-D like cards!
I used Lily from Michelle Perkett that I colored with colored pencils
I tried to match her dress and wings with the colors of the papers (I used Jaime´s papers), the flowers are a darker shade of pink and some of them are purple to change a bit, I applied also some dots of pearl paint here and there and on the centers of the flowers. What a lovely image to color! I really like it...
I made the flowers cutting them in my cricut machine first and ronded the petals from behind
then I glued them together and put a pearl on the center. With my cricut I cut also the oval frame that I later glitered, pasted it to the front of the card, cut the central circle following the frame and arranged the flowers on its right low corner.
I added a piece of lace that I embellish with three hearts (also cut with the cricut machine) and some stitches with gray embroidery floss. I cut the image around the fairy and hung it with a tiny piece of embroidery floss to the back of the front part of the card. Here you can see how the card looks like from the side
I´m entering this card in Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog were we have to use our favorite color, lace and pearls. My favorite color is brilliant blue, but..... I´m very shy with that shade of blue so I chose my next favorite color that is pink!
Also I´m posting this one on One Stitch at a Time Challenge Blog were anything goes, and on Meljen´s Design Challenge blog were we have to show girly colors.
