Magnolia love (DT post for The Rubber Buggy)

Hi all!

It's been a while since I had the chance to play with this awesome and super adorable sweetie, Bubbling Tilda. I had the best time putting this card together and had several inspiration sources, see list below.

I coloured her with my copics (a growing collection) and some other alcohol pens.
Skin: E50, ivory, satin, R01
Dress: C0, C1, C3
Hair: E50, E53, E55, E57
Wings: R000, C0

To create some structure and interesting elements I used glossy accent crackle medium on her wings and some diamond stickles. Spring is trying to come through here in Gothenburg, so I was inspired by the colours and the light - which I hope shows in my card.

The layout of the card is based on MFTWSC119 sketch, although I turned it over.
For a oval die cuts check out the store. Here I used spellbinders label 10, but Kellie stock gorgeous decorative ovals on the website both from Spellbinders as well as MFT. I created a little cluster of flowers and sprays using the Magnolia chandilier garland in green and wild orchid flowers. The colours were just wonderful, so I could not resist adding sprays from MB's tresurista.

To soften the card I layered pearl centered lace from the store on top of grossgrain ribbon. I created a banner using MFT banner dies to hold the sentiment SMILE from TGF's newest release.

I finished the inside as well, I stamped the image again in distress ink tattered rose, to make it seem like a watermark.
