Made up a card for a Pretty in Pink Challenge here. Very simple flowers, but needed something in the corners! Yup another Tilda colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spirits)!!!
Supplies: Tilda with Hearts from the 2009 Valentine Collection, tiny heart, the ash leaf and branch punch from Punch Bunch, lotus flower from EK Success and the Martha Stewart Punch Lattice border/corner set. (Thanks PeeJay for letting me know which one it was!) Also used a white Sakura Gel pen for some doodling on the dress, socks and flowers.
Check out all the Magnolia stamps at Diana's store here.
Thanks for stopping by!!! What is your favorite Tilda?

You can get lots of lovely Tilda's here!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!! Comments and questions welcome!!!
EDITED: For anyone interested in making the flowers on the top card, I've made up a little guide on what the layers look like. The flowers on the second card are made basically the same, just using different punches. I did scrunch the layers and let them dry before gluing.

Have had questions how I got the corners to come out on the square on my Angie's Challenge card with the Morocco Lace Border Punch by EK Success.
Begin with a 5" square. Starting in the middle, punch along one side, then punch the opposite side.
You will have about two thirds of a scallop left on each end of the border.
Punch the other two sides again starting in the middle of the side.
The end result should be nice even corners. If there are little notches, just trim with a scissors.
I've tried this with the Fleur de Lis, but it just does not come out even, but I would think some of the other scallop punches would work well too, it is just a matter of finding what size of square to start with.
Have also had some questions about how to make the flowers. I will be working on some very basic information to put into some tutorials and then can make some other recommendations.
If you live in the Twin Cities metro area of Minnesota, e-mail me if you are interested in attending Floral Punch classes. (Link to e-mail is on the sidebar.)

This was a card made from supplies that Angie sent. It was fun to try this challenge and use only what she sent. Thanks Angie!!!
Used the Morocco Lace border punch by EK Success along with the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendant. Also used EK daisy, McGill branch, Punch Bunch twig punches. Added some pearls and a satin ribbon for embellishments.
