Just Magnolia

I made this card for the challenge on Just Magnolia where they want birthday projects.
Now i know that this is Christmas morning Tilda, but since she isnt holding holly i reckon i could use this any time of year and she is such a darling.  I colored her with my favorite medium, copics and gave her head band and the candle light some glittah!  The DP is an old Rita Marie paper, the lace down the side of my card is another of my ek success border punches and the sentiment is a hero arts.  Now i know that the pearls at the bottom of my card are a bit of overkill, but when i cut my colored image with my nestie i missed the edge and it wasnt scalloped so i had to do something to cover my boo boo, or at least try to distract from the fact that its a mistake.  I was not gonna recolor my image so if i can live with it so can you,he he.  flowers are from my shop and so are the srprays of wirey thingys and it just so happened that they were the perfect color for this DP.

Now dont forget to leave me a comment what would i do if i knew no one was visitng? still make cards but it would be very quiet, i love reading all the comments and have made so many friends from the people that leave me comments.

  5. Cover up a mistake by sticking something over it?! Horror of all horrors! I would never do anything like that, except maybe when my granddaughter decides to add some extra glitter to a fairy's foot. LOL
    Can't see the mistake, but if you say so, I believe you.

  6. I just love your card Paola :) The colours and image you used are fab and it's a gorgeous design. Thank you for joining us over at Just Magnolia this week. Hugs, Dawny xxx
