Just Magnolia #12 - Copic Creations #7

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend so far. I've made a card for Just Magnolia challenge 12 where this week the theme is 'so charming' and a charm must be used and also for Copic Creations no. 7 where the challenge is 'brunette hair'. Thank you ladies for all the gorgeous inspiration which certainly boosted me to make a card. I've stamped my sweet umbrella Tilda and coloured her with copic markers then given her some glitter with star dust stickles. I've mounted her over a layer of pale pink Core'dination card one of which has been punched with an MS lace doily punch and they're attached with dimension foam over the card blank made from Scenic Route cardstock. Added some flowers, ribbon, a little silver doll charm, Doodlebug candy dots and some sponging with vintage photo distress ink to finish. TFL. Chris x

Your coloring is just fabulous. Being a sensory person, I want to feel your card. With all the layers and textures it has so much going on (in a GOOD way). Especially love that background print.

Wanted to let you know that the ribbon you asked me about (a long time ago) came out in the new Stampin' Up! catalog here in the US. Not sure how your catalogs run over there? It is called 1-1/4" striped grosgrain. Only downside is the colors have changed (no red). But I have a feeling I can love the new colors, too!
