Lady Tilda




I've been having a great time coloring my new Magnolia images from the Spring Club. I absolutely love all the images but am bummed because I didn't receive the Tilda with apple. I've contacted Magnolia so hopefully they'll respond soon.

Well on to today's card. I colored her with my copics and added some bling with stickles. I used my cricut again for the following cuts;
scalloped oval - Storybook p.49 then embossed w/the cuttlebug
leaves - Joys of the Season p.68
flowers - Forever Young p.68
I really enjoy my cricut and it's great to be able to use them with my Magnolia stamps. If you haven't tried I encourage you to.

The pearls are from Queen & Co. The patterned paper is K&Co from my stash. I stitched it onto a piece of purple cardstock. The flowers and ribbon was distressed with Tim Holtz distressing ink. I wet the flowers then sculpted and dried them to shape I wanted.
On the inside of the card I used one of the dragonfly stamps and punched it out and then punched a scalloped circle to mat it with.

Don't forget if you're interested in swapping stamped images of Tilda and Edwin I invite you to check out my post here. We'd love to have you join. We already have some great images signed up so don't miss out. This is a great chance to try some images before you buy them. Let's face we know you will. LOL

I really like this whole card. I like the color choices and I have been looking at cards lately tos see what kinds of flowers people use. I like to use things other then roses. I also think the way you framed the bottom with the flowers and vines looks wonderful!
