So, I have 2 projects for you!

Delight in the Little Things
For this project I used Floral Border and Delight.
The beautiful border was stamped on a piece of watercolor paper in Versamark Watermark Ink, then added White embossing powder and heat set.
The florals were colored with Ken Oliver Color Burst: I used Fuchsia, Indigo, Lemon Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson and Ultramarine Blue, trimmed the image after it was dry and sponged all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
After that, I used Circle Make Circles Stencil to add a little extra to the card, I used Broken China Distress ink, then the sentiment was stamped in Stazon Ink. 
Added white satin ribbon to the left side of the card and  pearls on the flowers.

Beautiful Minds
For this project I used Reflections, Floral Border and Beautiful Minds.
I started stamping the beautiful Reflectionsand Floral Border images on a piece of watercolor paper in Jet Black Stazon Ink, I used my MISTI to get the perfect impression. 
Then, I used the Arrowhead Chevron Stencil, combined few drops of Candy Apple Mist (Tattered Angels) and white embossing paste and added it to the panel, after that I misted the panel with Angel Pink, Rhubarb Stalk and Tangelo Firework Mists.
After it dry, I colored the face with Color Bursts, the flowers from the floral border were also colored with Color Burst and then cut out to decorate the head.
Then for the sentiment I used Diamond Fade Stencil and Vintage Photo Distress ink on a piece of white cardstockafter that I stamped the sentiment. Added a little bit of cheese cloth and silver thread behind the sentiment.
Decorated the panel wit flower sequins.
