Magnolia Lovers Challenge 2

I got time to squeek in a little bit of craft time this afternoon after my homework.  Gotta love homework on the first day of class right?!  My professors all seem nice so that is always a plus....hoping I am still saying that in May! LOL!  I took an HR Management class and it's all going to be hands on so that should be lots of lectures or exams....gotta love that, BUT our grade is based on presentations....Eeekkk....I'm staying positive that it will be fun though....and a new challenge!

The sketch I played with this afternoon is from Magnolia Stamp Lovers....which happens to be a challenge blog of my friend Cindy!  She owns StappingScrapping!  She has lots of goodies...and GREAT customer service.
I dug out my Tilda with Hearts....poor thing has never been ink'd up yet!  So I decided to play with her and show her some love.  I also decided that I wanted to use my sewing machine on this card.  The look I wanted was a soft look because my coloring tends to always have a heavy hand with darker shades then I sometimes am trying to achieve.  I was very pleased with this card and my coloring surprised me...I really liked the softer look.

Papers are from my K&Company Lovely Collection....which I accented with a soft blue cardstock and brighter green cardstock.  Used my Labels 4 and scalloped heart nesties....along with my fancy tags.

Miss. Tilda was colored with my Copics.  I used my Blossom Spica over the hearts for some shimmer.  To add more shimmer to Tilda I used my Twinkling H2Os in Blue Ice and Mustard Green in the shaded areas of her clothes.  I love the depth this added and of course all the bling and sparkles!  (Wish you could see all the shimmer to this's awesome IRL!)

My flower collage is made using my retro flower punch and MS heart punch, along with some Wild Orchid roses and Star Dust Stickles for some more bling!

Sentiment is stamped with my new Verve Hearts Desire set....those cute little hearts are part of the same collection!  I went over the sentiment with my clear Spica to add shimmer to it!

I hope you have enjoyed this fun creation....I have another Tilda waiting to be colored on my desk!  Hoping I get time to play with her and share another fun card with you soon!

I can think of several things I'd like to "lift" from this card - the swirls on the background, the lace heart. Nice job, please visit the Magnolia Stamp Lover's Blog Challenges often, your work is wonderful. Cindy2, DT
