Tilda in the Garden


I have a day off from work, and it is another 90+ degree day here in Connecticut, with humidity too, so I tucked myself away at my craft desk and put together this card. I have made a few over the past week, but this is the first one with a Magnolia image in a while.

Challenges:

Magnolia Down Under--
embossing
Just Magnolia--
In the Garden
(oops, I was 24 minutes too late)

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge--
bugs
Totally Gorjuss--
Sugar and Spice
The Shabby Tearoom--
color challenge,
"Cottage Comfort"


This image is "Sweet Tilda" and you can
get her through the Magnolia-licious store.
Some of my flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts,
others from my stash.
The pearl stickpin came from Susan at Killam Creative

Here is the inside:

A close-up of the embossed sentiment (from Stampin' Up!),
and the little punched butterfly with Stickles.


Thanks for visiting my blog...I hope you will leave me a little note, so I can visit your blog too!
