House of Gilli ~ Pastels and Bling

Welcome Spring!  Spring is my favorite time of year, and we've been having some glorious weather recently here in Pennsylvania.  This week I've made a Romantic Gilli card to welcome in the season; Gilli stamps are available here.  For this week's challenge at House of Gilli your project must include pastel colors and bling.  Here's my Romantic Gilli:

I gave Gilli's dress a coating of Star Dust Stickles available from Stamping Scrapping.  Gilli was colored with Copics and I added some decorative pearls to the card, as well as seed beads for Gilli's necklace. 

  Thanks so much for stopping by and please join in our challenge at House of Gilli!!!
