Just Magnolia! Week 1 - A Sketch For You

I was really looking forward to posting this card yesterday morning. I had my granddaughter all lined up to help me with the techanical side of things but when we went to log onto the pc, it decided to completely die on us!

I can't believe that after all these weeks of my family nagging me to set up my own blog, the dratted thing decides it doesn't want to do it after all. Here I am then, with my daughter's laptop and let me tell you, me and laptops don't get on. I did wonder what was the matter when I was trying to type the recipe in and nothing was happening. I asked Kimmie what was the matter and she told me I had to use the keyboard for the laptop, not the old pc. D'oh!!! It doesn't help when the laptop is sitting on top of the pc table and we have all this technology all over the place. Anyway, here's the card and the recipe. I really enjoyed making this:

and the inside....

Recipe: Magnolia Tilda with Hearts (coloured with Distress Inks)
Tattered Rose for skin
Worn Lipstick for pinny, socks and ribbon
Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap for dress and shoes
Antique Linen for basket and hair (with Frayed Burlap highlights)

Frosted Lace Stickles for Tilda's wings
Ruby Red Cosmic Shimers for her little hearts
White gelly roll pen for highlights here and there
I used Basic Grey Porcelain papers and the circle at the back was done in the Cuttlebug.
I've had the flowers, brads, lace and the sentiment rub on for a while.

I always decorate the inside of my cards so I just did another little picture of Tilda on a different shape to make it interesting, with a little punched strip at the bottom. I got this hearts punch from Hobbycraft (it was dead cheap; I like to feel I've had value for money!) The other side is a punched strip with the EK Succsss Swirls punch at the top.

I hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
