Magnolia - Tilda

My first order from MAGNOLIA-licious arrived the other day and I just couldn't wait to jump in there and start working. So here is my very first "Tilda" card and it's taken me all day to get it done. Countless other "needs" had to be dealt with so I worked on her between taking care of house and family.

I added several little extras to this card. The dp I used is from my scrap bin. I placed a small paper doily behind the scalloped square. Both squares were achieved using my Nestabilities dies and then I ran the white piece through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

When cutting out Tilda, I cut off the ribbons on her braids - they were just too small for me to cut around so I took some embroidery floss and tied it around the ends of her braids. Then I used a darker color of floss and tied it through the button, which came from MAGNOLIA-licious! Tilda's dress had white dots on it so I added these tiny pearls over them, which I purchased from Michael's. Lastly I computer generated the sentiment and punched it out with my small oval punch, used black in on the edges to make it stand out and then adhered it with dimensionals.

Here are the Copics I used to color her.
