A Sunny Double Fold card with Tilda as a Star

Starting fresh with a brand new year!  My very best wishes to all of you for the coming year.  I want to thank you all for stopping by my blog and being a part of my passion.  And a thank you also to those that take up their precious time to leave comments.  They are all so greatly appreciated and it encourages me tremendously!

Today I’m sharing my card made for the Magnolia-licious Highlites January Challenge Anything Goes!  Our Hostess this month is the most talented Cheryl Rowley and she has left it wide open for us to create whatever our little hearts desire...as long as it contains at least one wonderful Magnolia stamp (or more of course)!!!
A nice sunny yellow and REALLY green will certainly make us think of spring coming so that can make the snow and ice more tolerable!!!  Tilda is colored with Promarker and Touch markers.  I’ve experimented a little with using dots for shading and also the blender pen to remove a little ink for the highlights on her jumper.
Here are the things (and links) I used on my double fold card that I got from Magnolia-licious:

Did you see the leaves came from the tips of the snowflake?  I do putzy, but even I wasn’t going to put individual leaves on the wreath like that.  These are in nice little groupings of three on a stem.

Have also used a couple of Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder and an Inkadinkado stamp.

This new Sweet Crazy Love collection which you can find HERE at Magnolia-licious is one of the best and I’m sure is going to be soooo popular because we will be able to use these for so many occasions and because they are just so darned cute!!!  Can’t wait to get into making Valentines with them!
Magnolia-licious has the best collection of these and tons of others plus check out all the dies that Diana is now carrying!!!  Woohoo!!!  Remember too, awesome products, awesome service and awesome people at Magnolia-licious!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  On to another tremendous year of Maggie goodness!!!  Please join us in this challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites!
Enjoy every day!!!

Oh what a cutie pie! Rats, this is one I didn't get, so she will be in my next order...LOL. Sometimes it's hard to see how cute Tilda is until you've seen her all coloured up. Hi Patti Jo. Love this double fold card. Like the way the circle in front fits right over the one in the inside. Must try this! Awesome colouring job. Love the way it turns out with those dots--looks fab. Must give it a try also. Thanks for the inspirations. Love the card!!!
hugs,
Norma
