A Happy Day!

Just a short posting here to show you my latest creation.

I've used 2 Magnolia images here:
Mini Dancing Party Tilda from the Mini You Are So Special Collection 2011 and
Summer Background Fairytale from the Fairytale Collection 2010.

Both of these stamps are available from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious.

For this card, I've used this wonderful sketch that Stacy has created for Inspirational Card Sketches #113.

This is also my entry for the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 78 - 123 (1 flower or sentiment, 2 images and 3 DP's)

ABC Challenge - T is for two or more images

Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

I'm still finding it harder to colour these minies--easier to colour outside the lines...LOL, but I'm getting more use to it. I've scaled down my card size a 5 1/2-inch square from my usual 6" square, as I think it looked better proportioned that way.

Thanks for dropping by. Your visit is very much appreciated. One more day and then...woo-hoo...have a wonderful weekend!!!

DP's: We R Memory Keepers comstock collection Buttercup, one sheet from DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girls paper pad, one sheet from DCWV Holiday Stack paper pad

Tools: EK Success Retro Flower punches medium and small, Punch Bunch Ash Leaf punch medium, Joy Craft leaf die

Embellishments: Recollections Autumn pearls

Misc.: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stamp Pad Vintage Photo

Hi Norma,
I can't believe how beautifully you have coloured Tilda!! She's wonderful. That rainbow background works great with her. Really lovely card :o)
I am wondering how you have made your flower with the retro punches. I have the same ones but my flowers never look like that! Have you used special paper?
Hugs, Candy
