Just Magnolia

I colored this image a while ago and have never used it, so i decided that this may be the perfect opportunity, she is such a darling image and one of those that i truly adore, i think i have been fearful of using her cos she came as a Christmas image, but sure why not use her for any occasion.

I made this card following the sketch on Just Magnolia, but i flipped the sketch as it worked better for me this way around, he he, hope its allowed.  Colored with copic, sorry no pic of colors i colored it so long ago and never took note.  Dp and all the product i used is from the stash, the dp is scraps from the stash.  Gave her lots of the glittah treatment.


  1. Oh this is so sweet...Love this Tilda...will have to put her on the wish list I think. The DP's work so well and the pearls & bling just finish it all off perfectly....

  2. WOW, you're back again hehe! Such a gorgeous card. I also luv this Tilda and like you haven't used her cause she's from the Xmas range but it looks really good so possibly we should use our things more and forget about which season they were purchased in lol! Lotsa luv xxxx

  3. Oh my Paola, another precious card.. love love the paper.. the coloring of Tilda is to adorable... of course my glittah is perfect and loving those pearls.... and your one pink rose is so perfectly placed... gorgeous darlin
