Just Magnolia challenge 13

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good week and a bit of sun here and there. This card is for the Just Magnolia challenge where this week there's a great sketch from Mina which I loved working with, thanks Mina, it's a goodie :). I've used a sweet Tilda from last summer, coloured with markers and then cut out, I could have arranged the cut out a bit better, it looks a bit like she's floating in space, I attached the horizontal strip a bit too far up. The papers are all imaginisce and they've all been sponged around the edges, also the cut out flowers. The card blank is embosed with the Moroccan screen embossing folder and I've added a doodlebug rub on sentiment and stickles here and there which is just about showing up in the photo. See you tomorrow with my colour create card. TFL.

Note: Pop over to Hero Arts new website, they're celebrating their launch with some fantastic prizes!

Totally gorgeous card Sweetie. Great to see that you listened to 'Aunty Sandra' and got some card making done ;o)
Just love the way you have coloured your Sweet Tilda... and how she is angled towards the sun! A triumph... even if she is a bit 'Paul Daniels' when it comes to floating (only kidding ;o)
