Just Magnolia Birthday

Good Morning All,

Happy Birthday Just Magnolia Challenge! This card was created using the Sketch provided by Just Magnolia this week to celebrate their Birthday! My friend Deb surprised me with Wrapped Tilda last week as she knew I really really wanted her. She had planned to give her to me for my Birthday but couldn't wait!
What a wonderful friend.

I have started with a White base card and added an Almost Amethyst layer followed by Melissa Francis "Sherelle" pattern paper sewn to the panel. I then repeated this step with a smaller panel. The ovals are CM cutting shapes and I have offset them and run the white oval through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder before inking her edges and dots.

Tilda is coloured with Copics BV0000, BV02, C00, C1, E50, E00, E02, E31, E33 & E37. I also added a little sparkle to her bow and sock with stickles diamonds. The Thank You sentiment an optional extra challenge at Just Magnolia this week is from the SU Party Punch set and is cut out with the corresponding punch. I have used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Trim Punch for the strip across the card and inked it with Almost Amethyst ink. I have coloured my flowers with a bit of Almost Amethyst and BV02 Copic. The leaves are punched with a McGill punch from True Thyme. Large pearl finish the card as per the sketch.

I am also going to enter this card in this week Colour Create Challenge of Lilac, White and Grey.
