Wonderful and Special Day

Hello! Happy Friday! Weekend coming up...woo-hoo...

I have a card to show you. Duh...what else! LOL.

I borrowed the sketch from Just Magnolia's last week's challenge for my layout. It took me too long to finish this card, so I missed the deadline...oh well.

This is a very girly Tilda, but she is just sooo...cute that I couldn't resist getting her. She is called Wonderful Tilda and she is from Magnolia's latest/newest collection, Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011. You can purchase her also from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.

My colouring here was done with my coloured pencils.

I used the Spellbinders Lacey Circle die to match the ribbon with the looped edges that I found at Michaels. And also because I saw Pat's card where she wove a string of pearls in and out of the die cut's paper loops. I wanted to do the same. You can see her fabulous card here.

I am entering the following challenges with this card:
The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge TOMIC - Challenge #2 - Pink + White + Brown
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #73 - Girly Girl
Stamp With Fun - Challenge 115 - Pearls and Flowers
Simon Says Stamps - Let's Play Bingo (shape, ribbon, sentiment)
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 169 - Birthstones! (agate)
