This adorable image is called Tilda with Hawaii Flower from the newly-released Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011 from Magnolia. The background image is called Tulip Walkway also from the same collection. Both of them can be purchased from Magnolia-licious online store. (Oops sorry, I just checked and both of them--so popular--are out stock, but Diana has them on re-order. Check out the rest of the Tildas in that collection though--they are just as adorable. And OMG, Diana says there are more images coming!!! )
I got this new Marianne Design die set and one of them is a flower die. I had fun making the flowers--I thought they look pretty. The way I curled the petals made the flowers rather bulky--nice 3-D look I thought--they're about a half-inch high. I forgot about this fact when I decided to decorate the bottom of my easel card with them. And now I can't closed the card without flattening the flower...LOL. Silly me!!!
Please have a look at the other DT ladies' fabulous cards/projects at the challenge blog here. Get inspired and join us in our Green Challenge. The prize is a $25 Gift Certificate.
