Just Magnolia #60...Tilda In the Garden!!!

Good morning crafty friends! I played in my craft room quite a bit this weekend and I made this card for the Just Magnolia Challenge...it sounded like a great theme...In the Garden...I just couldn't resist playing along! I decided to use this sweet Tilda picking strawberries from her vegetable garden and I used the Magnolia spring fence to make a little scene.
So, I'm not a gardener at all but my Dad sure is...boy, does he love his garden! He was at my house the other day and said "awk, I best get home to make me tae" (with his Irish accent I must add) and then he says with a sly look on his face "me compost tae, that is! I got the recipe off the Internet." lol! Well, I think that is just too funny! I didn't even know there was such a thing as compost tea...did you!? Well, get this, my Mum informs me he uses her old pantyhose to strain it through,rofl! Sounds like too much work to me,lol!
Well, enough story telling...now about this card...I used some new October Afternoon papers from Scrappin' Great Deals and I am soooooo in love with them. They are just gorgeous and so fun to work with! I added some eyelet trim that I picked up at a quaint little sewing shop on my travels to Lindsay, some Prima flowers with gems and I punched MS butterflies from QuicKutz cork material.

I coloured Tilda with my Copics, of course, and cut the image out with my Nesties and inked the background with Tumbled Glass and Old Paper Distress inks. The Garden Notes sentiment is from Catslife Press and the other sentiment is from Stamping Bella and is stamped on a QK tag.

Here is the inside...I used a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sentiment from Kimmie's Beachy sentiment set!
Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I am off to make me a tea but not compost tea, that is for sure, smile!
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
