Tilda Gathering Flowers at Just Magnolia



Happy Saturday to everyone and I hope you are starting a marvelous weekend!! I know my weekend is going well and I intend to enjoy each and every moment of it!!!

This week at Just Magnolia we were treated to a marvelous sketch by the magnificently talented and creative Jane. You can rotate and/or flip the sketch, as long as we can still see the basic sketch on your creation. Don’t forget that you can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp. If you meet these requirements, you will qualify to be in the draw for the splendid prize from Dies to Die For. And remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please. Please turn off comment verification if you want the DT to leave you a comment. There are step by step instructions in the side bar at Just Magnolia on how to turn it off and enable moderation.

For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is CreMotion's Victorian Romance, Mixed. All panels were machine stitched. Little Tilda with Flower in Her Hair from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White twice and colored with Copics. I also added some Glossy Accents and tiny pearls to her shoes. Yet again that little cutie has her shoes on the wrong feet!! This image was in the Easter collection and has eggs in her lap--I changed those eggs to some red flowers!! This is an example of how to use certain holiday images for other times of the year!! What do you think? One of the Tildas was cut out and propped up on dimensional tape, resting on oval Nesties. I used a double grosgrain ribbon vertical, added a flower treatment on MS punches branches, and red rhinestones to finish the front.



For the inside of the card I also used the double ribbon verticals on each panel, adding heart buttons, sewn with jute. For the jotting panel I added a red/blue bow and tiny red flowers to repeat the flowers from the front!

I hope you like my little creation and will want to join us at Just Magnolia this week. I would love for you to come on over and check out the absolutely gorgeous cards by the DT Members featuring the cutest Maggies!!

Thank you so much for dropping by to see me today! I sincerely appreciate your sweet and kind comments as well as your emails and cards with so many wonderful thoughts and wishes!! May your weekend be one of many smiles and much joy!!! Hope to see you again real soon!! Maggie hugs to each of you!!
