Magic among the lily pads

Hello! I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.

I have another easel card here. I just adore the images from the Magnolia's Fairy Tale Collection. Tilda just keeps getting cuter with each new collection. The image I have used for this card is called Fairy Tale Tilda.

For the layout of the card, I used Bev's sketch that she's created for Just Magnolia's Week 53 Challenge .

And here are a list of other challenges for this card:

Everybody-Art-Challenge #88 - Song Title. I think the song "Do you Believe in Magic?" fits the bill, don't you?

Stamping for the Weekend - Getting to Know You. The book that inspired this, of course, is the fairy tale The Frog Prince.

The waterlilies were created to meet the theme for two challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge - Do something different, and
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 110 - Make your Own!
Yes, I made these flowers!!! And I am quite pleased with them. I haven't done waterlilies before. I wanted to get it just right that I even went to the library and took out a book on waterlilies with tons of pictures in it. What do you think?

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Their Challenge 101 is to 3D Something.

Charisma Cardz Challenges - the theme for their Challenge 17 is Girly Card with Flowers.
Creatalicious Challenges - Challenge #9 - Create Something with Flowers and Wings

Crafts and Me - Challenge #3 - Sparkles. Lots of glitter on the card. You can probably see it better on this close up. Glitter on the DP's, on Tilda's wings, on the Frog Prince's crown, outlining the inner circle and on the stars in the background.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a good week !

Stamp: Magnolia Fairy Tale Tilda.
DP's: SEI pearl foil paper from Addison paper pad, DCWV Nana's Nursery baby girl paper pad.
Tools: Marvy Uchida scallop circle punch, Coluzzle circle template, Fiskars flower punch, Carla Craft sun punch, Fiskars corner punch, tiny sun punch from Michaels $1.50 bin.

This is STUNNING! Norma where do you get these ideas, now that i look at it, the Tilda and frog to have on a lily pond makes perfect sense, it is just too adorable. I may use your idea when i get my little Tilda with the frog. TFS

Hi Norma,

Your waterlilies are lovely so are the waterlily pads. Clever gal.
Perfect choice of Tilda. She obviously got Prince frog from the waterlily pads. It's a lovely design and the DP is wonderful.
