My first Lily of the Valley Card!

How cute is she!!! I love her I think she's ADORABLE!!!!! I was going to use Pink and Brown and then I heard a little voice in my head, it was Jennifer! So I decided to use RED! Aren't you proud?! LOL!! I decided to try the ABC tutorial challenge which is the cracked glass effect. I just used regular clear embossing powder with like 6 layers and it just doesn't come out like the tutorial :( I need to get that other stuff. But I tried! I was orginally trying to make a regular 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card but when I stood the card up I had glued it all on pside down! So easel card it was meant to be and I LOVE it. I was able to use my new Martha Stewart Butterfly border punch. I also just got this other Butterfly Martha Stewart punch. I'm loving them!!!
Here's the Challenges I've made the card for:
Lily of the Valley - Valentines
Charisma - I love you (what says I love you more than red flowers)
Dutch Dare - Summer (my butterflies)
Copic Color - E18, E42, E77 (My hair colors are close to these)
ABC Tutorial Challenge - Cracked Glass
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch ( I totally forgot the sentiment. I have it though! I was sidetracked by the whole gluing upside down)
Simon Says Stamp - Inspired by a red rose photo
Supplies:
Paper - SU and Misc
Hair & Shoes -E13, E35, E37, E39, E49
Skin - E51, E11, E13, R32
Skirt Flowers - R32, R35, R37, R39
Shirt & Socks - C2, C3, C4
Leaves - YG93, YG97
Accessories - Prima Blingy Swirls, Flowers are Prima and misc, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Martha Stewart butterfly border punch, Stampin Up! Ribbon, Paper Doily, White Gel Pen, Heat tool, Clear embossing powder.
