Gilli Gets Bling!!

Today I'm sharing a fun card I made for a NEW House of Gilli Challenge HERE!  We have been challenged to GO PASTEL with BLING on our Gilli stamps!  Easy peasy me thinks!  I used this beautiful "Girly Gilli"--isn't she adorable, reminds me of my teen daughter Alexa!  The papers are by Basic Grey called "Hopscotch" & I loved the muted tones of peaches and greens and fun patterns.  The sentiment is from PTI and that lovely paper trim was done with a MS border punch.  The fun flower accents were cut with Spellbinders dies and then embossed with different Cuttlebug embossing folders.

And yes she was colored with Copics (but of course sillies, LOL)!  I used G04,G02,G00/R02,R00/E11,E00/E37,E35,YR20,E50.  I put some stickles on her shoes and accents for some bling--every gal has gotta have bling right?

Now you can see the whole line of Gilli stamps and accessories at here!  And come join in the challenge at the House of Gilli HERE for a fabulous prize!!
