Magnolia-licious dt

Tuesday is here and its time for another challenge on Magnolia-licious challenge blog, the photo inspiration is a great one: 
Not sure exactly what i was thinking when i colored my image, with all those pleats, this image was done  quite some time back while i was teaching a workshop for copics.  I just love this image:  available from Magnolia-licious store #3060 Secret Tilda.
Image colored with copics:  B97, B95, B93, B91, B000, hair: C7, C5, C3, C1, Reds: R29, R27, R24, R22, all our little Tilda's lace got a good going over with star dust stickles, the stars around my image were stamped using one of those random stamps that we all have in our stash, i then gave each of the stars a rhinestone centre, a girl can never have enough bling!
the sentiment is one that i got last year at the NEC from LOTV.  Border punch is  a MS punch, the doily is one from Nellie Snellen mfd dies, and the flourish is a Marianne die.
the paper was really old so i have no idea where its from and the lace is a vintage lace that i found at one of the local suppliers.  I just had to add the stitching to the card to finish it off.
the girls on the dt really outdid themselves with this fab challenge i look forward to seeing what all of you come up with so head over to the challenge blog and join in the fun

  16. Paola, hey girlfriend, what a stunningly gorgeous card you’ve made. And wow, look at those folds and pleats. Terrific colouring job!!! Wonderful layout. Your lace is to die for and I’m a sucker for any kind of swirls or flourishes. Not a thing on your card I don’t like…LOL.

    Hugs,
    Norma
