A Mother's Day Round Side-Step Card

Hello!

This Mother's Day card is the end result of my doing a tutorial on how I do my round front-panel side-step cards.  I've posted the tutorial just previous to this posting--see below or click HERE if you're interested. 


View from a different angle. 



This adorable Magnolia princess is called Princess of the Valley.  She is part of Magnolia's newest Princes and Princesses Collection 2012.  Have you seen the rest of the collection?  Oooh, they are all just as adorable.  Check them out at Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  You will find that Diana has a huge inventory of regular-size and mini-size Magnolia stamps and doohickey cutting dies.  Don't overlook her selection of dies from Memory Box and Poppystamps--they're exquisite!     


I've mainly used my markers to colour Tilda and my coloured pencils to add some shadings. 

Here's a view of the entire round card when I lay it flat out on the table.
