Just Magnolia Challenge...Thanks a Bunch!

Hey!!!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am getting lots of crafty time in! Chris just took the kids skating and to MacDonald's. I am enjoying the peace and quiet as Kieran had a friend sleep over and well, boys are just naturally a bit loud, smile and especially when they are having Nerf gun wars,lol!!!!

Well, I wanted to share this card that I started before the Christmas holidays and finished up today by adding all the embellies! I had the panel made up and the image coloured but I didn't get it done in time to send out as a Christmas card but I didn't want it to go to waste as I just adore this sweet Tilda! I saw that the lovely and talented Minxy used this same Tilda on a Valentines day card, so I thought I would re-purpose this card too! Thanks for the inspiration, hun! So, I have turned it into a Thank you card to enter this week's challenge over at Just Magnolia and when I started making this card I used the great sketch that they had at the Just Magnolia blog for Week 38!

I used Prism Kraft cardstock, Bazzill Basics cardstock for matting and BG Eskimo Kisses...I'm still totally love with this BG paper even after using it for most of my Christmas cards. Good thing too cuz I still have a ton of it left over, lol...well, at least it can be used for other things other than just Christmas cards!!! I might have gone a little overboard on the flowers but I love 'em and the half pearls too! I love sprinkling them here and there! The red velvet ribbon is American Crafts and the blue velvet is from Micheals! I also added some Icicles Stickels for some shimmer!
I stamped Tilda on ATS Copic Quality card and coloured her with my beloved Copic markers and cut the image with my oval Nesties! I left the image in the die and inked the background with Tattered Rose Distess Inks. The "Angel" sentiment is chipboard piece from a dollar store set and the other sentiment is WoJ stamp.

Well, there you have it! It was so good to finish up this "half-made" card! Thanks for stopping by for a wee peek!
