Chasing Tilda

Used the lovely Miss Chasing Tilda from the Chasing Butterflies collection for a swap card.  You can find a terrific selection of Magnolia stamps here.

Most of my card making has always been flowers and scenery with a few cutesy things when I was in the Penny Black stage, so it surprises me how much I enjoy these little girls.  Think it brings me back to my childhood when I loved to color and play with paper dolls.  They always say as we get older, we revert back to being a child.   Guess I'm heading there!!!

Colored Tilda with Prismacolor Pencils and the odorless mineral spirits and used the Victoria Embossing Folder by Cuttlebug, the EK Success dotted wave border punch,  Martha Stewart branch punch and twig, flower 2 and sun punches from Punch Bunch.  Added some brads, ribbons and dot sparklers for a little shine.  Also used a glaze white gel pen for accent dots on her cheeks and on the dress.  Have been collecting charms for many years and finally remembered to use one of them.

This flower punch I think is my favorite one of all the flower punches.  Think it is because you can make it into such a nice ruffly flower and buds.

So appreciate the comments!!!  Thank you!!!  It is so nice to hear from people that have stopped by!
