Magnolia-licious Highlites July Sketch

Loved Mindy's Sketch Challenge for July!!!  Really makes it nice to have a jump start as to where to begin with a card.

Used the adorable new #353 SWEETIE TILDA for the Sweet Rainbow collecton.  She is perfect for any occasion!  Of course got her at the Sweetie Diana's Magnolia-licious store.  Hard to see, but did also use the #19 MINI ZIG ZAG AND SCALLOP BORDER.  My swirls kind of covered the background band I made with the scallop border.  Really like these border dies for just a little added design and also the fact that they are 7" long so will fit across just about any card.

Had a little fun with a paper pack from Mrs. Elizabeth and did some paper piecing.  The package showed small thumbnail sizes of the printed paper inside, so it worked out perfectly to use for the paper piecing on Tilda's dress, shoe and bows.

Also used Spellbinders hexagon dies, Marianne swirls die,  Punch Bunch mini sun and butterfly punches, Stampin' Up! oval punches, Fiskars 1/16" and 1/8" circle punches and EK Success daisy punch.  Just a little coloring with Distress Inks and accented with white gel pen.  Got a little carried away with the dots!!!
Please join us at Magnolia-licious Highlites for this challenge and terrific sketch!  Details are HERE!

Enjoy every day!!!

Hi Patti Jo!
Super job on this card. clever idea to use the small thumbnail printed paper to match the bigger size pattern. Very lovely design. I love your flowers and your cute butterfly. I love all the dots. Lovely coloring too. I love her hair.
