Tilda with Butterfly for Magnolia-licious August Sketch


A very happy Sunday evening to everyone!! I hope that you have had a magnificent weekend and are looking forward to an exceptional week!

My card today uses the August Magnolia-licious DT Sketch which was designed by the marvelously talented Becca and was a real challenge for me!! I hope that you will join with Becca and the other DT members to create your card using the same sketch and place it with ours on the Magnolia-licious Highlites site. I would love to see your individual interpretations of this sketch!! Be sure to link your card to your comment so that you will be eligible for the 2 prizes being given by Diana....one selected randomly and one for thinking outside the box!!! Good Luck!!


I used Bazzill CS for the base and PTI and SU CS for all of the matting. I also stitched each of the major backgrounds for each panel. For DP I used Mini Flower Glitter CS from the Heidi Grace A Little Bird's Tale Collection. I used Tilda With Butterfly from the Catching Butterflies Collection 2009. I could not find her on the Magnolia-licious site which probably means that it is temporarily sold out. I'm sure if you would contact Diana, she would try her best to get this Tilda for you...but while you are there I'm sure you will find some darling Maggies that you NEED!!!!

For the front of the card, I stamped and colored Tilda twice and cut her out to be propped up on dimensional tape. I used Souffle pens and Spicas to color the butterfly she is holding and added a few white dots to eyelets on her blouse and the dots on her hat. Finally I added tiny pearls to the buttons on her shoes that she obviously placed on the wrong feet...so much like a little munchkin...lol.

To complete the front I added green and lavender satin ribbon to cross at the lower left side with a double bow of the lavender satin and organza ribbons...topping the bows with an organza mesh butterfly. I then added four-layered flowers with Dew Drop centers to the two circles on the left side and topped them with 2 green flower pins. All of the corners were dotted with green or lavender Dew Drops. All of the flowers, ribbons, Dew Drops, and pins are from the August blossom kit at Crafty Feeling. Jayne has some absolutely beautiful things in her shop if you would like to go check it out. Thanks, Jayne!!


For the inside of the card I used the same papers and ribbons as the front, adding tiny heart buttons threaded with DMC for each of the corners. On the first panel I centered the double bow and added a dangling butterfly charm. On the second panel is simply a bowed jotting spot.

I have to note that no matter what kind of light I used or what kind of editing I tried I could not get the greens to photograph true to life. So I hope you will take my word that they really do match...lolol

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening here today and I hope you will leave us a note so we will know you have visited us. I do appreciate your comments and always look forward to hearing from you. May you have a safe and enjoyable week and I hope you will come back often!! Magnolia-liciously wonderful hugs to each of you!!!!

Ohhh...what a sweet card! Your dp is sooo pretty (I LOVE purple!) and the flowers are perfect. Little Tilda is sooo cute in the middle. And, your inside is equally gorgeous! I'm so jealous that you are able to do the inside, I never seem to find time to do this. Great card. hugz, Mary
