Tilda Thank You

Every now and again the rain must fall and that is what we have today. They are calling for it all weekend and I am keeping my fingers crossed that they are wrong.

I thought that I would pop by with a quick post this morning and share another card. This one uses a new Magnolia image that I had been wanting and picked up as part of my last Simon Says Stamp order.
I have had her coloured for a few weeks and last night I sat down to make a card with her.

I have had a card base made with this layout for a while now and I was trying to figure out what shape of image I would colour up for it and I set this image on it.  I realized that although the card war the wrong colour the layout was perfect and I set about to make another one to match Tilda's dress and flowers.

The layout of the card is getting a little hard to see as I really went to town with the embellishments on this one.  I have used a number of Magnolia dies and a mix of flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid. As there was not much room left for a sentiment I have tucked a tag behind my image.

There were even enough pieces left over for me to finish off the inside. I have left the centre panel blank to write a little note to the recipient.

I want to thank you all for stopping by for a visit. Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
