A Very Special Tilda

 As many of you know, one of my passions is the floral punch craft.  I will still be pursuing that, but as you’ve probably noticed I’ve become a little obsessed with the Magnolia stamps!  Think it is reverting back to childhood because I LOVE to color.

Well I was completely blown away when I received an e-mail from Diana at Magnolia-licious and she asked if I would be interested in being a guest designer.  Don’t think I’ve ever said “Oh My Gosh!” that many times in my entire life!  Still kind of in a daze.  I am so excited to join the team and work with my card making idols!!!   What a DREAM and I am so honored!!!  Thank you again Diana!

I also want to thank my dear friends that give me the support and encouragement to go beyond my fears and try new adventures!!!  Couldn’t do it without you!!!

So this is my first card for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Sketch Challenge from a terrific sketch by Becca Feeken.  Water Colored with Distress Inks.

Magnolia Stamp #391 Jam Tilda
Background paper:  29th Street Marketplace
Distress Inks:  Hair-Tea Dye
                      Skin-Tattered Rose
                      Clothes-Peeled Paint and Broken China
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders:  Swiss Dots and Just My Type Border
Punch Bunch Twig punch
Prima Flowers
White Glaze Pen
Foam Tape

You can find the cutie Maggie stamps here at Diana's store.

If you head on over to the Highlites blog, you can see the lovely creations of the Design Team members and see how you can join in on the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the day!!!
