I used this lovely girl from Emily Showers of Love digital stamp set. She is printed out and colored with Promarkers. Dogwood Rose and Lavender Iris glitters was adhered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen to her outfit and accessories.  Part of the umbrella is fussy cut with scissors and rest of the image is die cutted with Spellbinders Oval die. I added some color to the edges with Broken China Distress Ink. Hearts are covered with Rose Water Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Sentiment is from same stamp set but it is in rubber form. Big plus with digi stamps is that you can resize them. And best thing with rubber stamps is that you can use embossing powders with them. So on my card I used them both. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it is heat embossed with Rosa Embossing Powder. I used stitched rectangle die to cut it out. I wanted one end to be cut an angle, so I took a bigger rectangle and cutted the end again. Edges are inked with Broken China Distress ink.

I wanted lots of layers and texture underneath the main image. First I added a lace to the back side of the Oval image layer. Under that is a die cut shape made with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die. I covered it with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Dogwood Rose Glitter. To add more fancy edges I placed a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die cut underneath. 
Center panel of the background is dry embossed with Embossing Folder. To make the raised parts pop out better, I inked them slightly with Broken China Distress ink. I also adhered 1/8" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the top and bottom edges and covered the tape with Dogwood Rose Glitter. You don't see in on following photo, but I also placed die cut strips, made with Creative Expressions Trellis Edger die, underneath the edges.

Flowers and leaves are from my leftovers basket. Flowers are die cutted with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. They are colored with Worn Lipstick Distress ink... I think... I'm not completely sure of it. Leaves are die cutted with Spellbinders Sprigs die. For coloring I used Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress inks.

Card base is die cutted with die from Tonic Trellis Circle set

The next stop on our blog hop is extremely talented Donna
