I love violets. I have since college days when I was an Alpha Delta Pi. Today is Founder's Day so this card is with that in mind.
This house mouse stamp was colored with prisma colored pencils. The blue outline was blended with odorless mineral spirits. The one violet is popped. The bow is done with two buttons tied around the ribbon. The three dots are nailhead stickers. The dp is two nestabilities labels cut in half then rearranged around the card. 
Here is a side view to show the popped up violet.
Here is a picture of the inside with Amanda waking.
Hope you enjoyed this latest creation.

Framed Tilda

Tilda is always cute enough to frame - so I did. The flowers Tilda is holding reminded me of the spring flowers I am seeing outside.

Tilda is colored with copics with frosted lace stickles on her dress and crystal stickles on the flowers. The frame is cut from Palace Oval Frame by Memory Box. It is cut out of a piece of cardboard in a fancy feast cat food box. :) Waste not want not! Then it was sprayed with a walnut ink with a gold mica or something like that added. I made the mixture years ago and can't quite remember what I did. The flowers are from Prima flowers with a pink candy dot in the middle. The dp's and ribbon are some I have had sitting around. The butterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart punch which now seems to be ruined. I can't get the butterflies out now. I really don't like punches - they seem to wear out way too soon for the money spent.
