Party Time with Gilli!!!

Hi!  I have two cards to show you today!  The first one is for Challenge #9 over at House of Gilli.  To enter this challenge you must use buttons on your project, and I'm sure this will be easy for everyone!  We'd love to see you use your Gilli images and you'll get two entries if you do, but it's not a requirement.  We'll have many inspirational ideas for you over the next couple of weeks, so keep checking in at Gilli's House.  ;)  Oh and the challenge winner will receive a Gilli surprise!!!  Here's a look at my card using Rockability Gilli (and buttons):

 I paper-pieced Gilli's dress; and as I was trying out different ideas, it was reminding me of paper dolls and Colorforms.  I used to love changing the outfits and scenery of both of these, and I guess my love of card making is somewhat similar, lol.  Gilli is colored with Copics and the pretty die behind her is a Stamping Scrapping/Spellbinder die.  You can get these at Stamping Scrapping, as well as, matching stamps to go with these!  Here's a close up of Rockability Gilli:
 So pull out those buttons because we're looking forward to seeing what you create!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Mark's Finest Papers  ~ Flowers
One Stop Craft Challenge  ~ Texture
Inspire Me Fridays  ~ Anything Goes
Creative Craft World ~ 3 or More Flowers
Through the CraftRoom Door  ~ Paper Piecing
