Tickled Pink Stamps Guest card

Today I have a card to show you - it's another Lil Lolita for the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges - the latest challenge is:  NO DESIGNER PAPERS; MAKE YOUR OWN.
And here's my card:

I've used Lil Lolita - Ivy - and you can find her right here at Tickled Pink Stamps
I've gone with Old Olive, Barely Banana, Kraft and White for this card -  not colours I would usually use together, but I think they work well together - I tend not to choose too many colours for the one project - usually two main colours and the one or two complimentary colours - for the background paper I've used Fifth Ave Floral and stamped up the large rose image in the green and yellow ink.
I've also made a circle from Banana cardstock, then added the En Francais BG stamp.  There's lots of sponging around the edges of all the cardstocks.
The cute Ivy image has been coloured with Copics and I've used stickles and glitter to add a bit of shine to her dress.
For the embellishments, I've used:
* wide lace from my stash
* pearl spray and leaf - Bizzy Becs - i love these pearl sprays and have just ordered a whole heap more.
* the crochet flower was from a dear friend and I've added a Basic Grey brad to the centre
* a circle sentiment and some rhinestones.
Here's a closer look at the details:

This challenge was a bit of fun and I've really enjoyed working with these quirky images from Kellie.
I hope you are inspired to join in with this challenge - just pop over to the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge blog to see how you can join in and also check out the amazing cards from the Design Team.
