Tilda With a Gift For You

Hello.  This is going to be a short posting.
Here's my latest card.  The base of the card is just the one layer...

and the top half of the card is folded back so the card can be put on display standing up. 

I am featuring this adorable image of Tilda With A Gift For You from Magnolia's Turning Leaves Collection 2012.  I have coloured her with my Letraset Promarker and Tria markers.   

Check out Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious for this Tilda stamp and other full-size and mini-size stamps from Magnolia.  While you're there, have a look at the dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn.  Prices are discounted and you earn a 2% store credit to be applied on future purchases.
