Peachy Tilda for GDT card for ABC Challenge

Happy May 1st everyone,

Very excited this is my first card as GDT for ABC Challenge and our theme is O for Orange.

We would like to see orange as the main focus on your design.  You can also use other colors but please make orange the standout.

Here's what I came up with for this challenge.  My papers are from My Minds eye called "On the bright side"
Around the card I used Martha Stewart Scroll Lace around the page punches.  Behind the flowers is a Cheery Lynn doily die called Kiwi.

For my images I used Peachy Tilda from the Yummy for my Tummy collection and Stone pathway from the Butterfly Dreams collection and colored with Copics.

Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E47, E57, E53
Dress and scarf: YR09, YR68, YR65, YR61
Peaches: YR02, YR00, YR31
Leafs: YG67, YG63, G20
Boots and basket: E47, E44, E43, E42
Stones: W5, W3, W1, W00

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts .  On the butterflies are used stardust stickles then covered with glossy accents.  Lace and pearls are from stock.

My tag is Magnolia Doohickey die and sentiment is from Studio G.  The peach is colored with copics then covered with Glossy Accents.

I am entering my card in the following challenges
Magnolia Mania - Bingo (Tilda, lace, distressing)
Midweek Magnolia - Open Theme

Southern Girls - Get your Girly on
