Tilda in Red

Oh my Goodness! Each time I open up another one of my new Magnolia stamps, I fall in love with another little Tilda!
I've been hoarding this flocked paper from Stampin' Up! forever. I decided I would finally cut into my first piece and I'm so glad I did. I punched the lacey strip with my Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" edge punch - so dainty! She is colored with Copic markers - (I have a lot of work to do on blending reds). The hearts along the left side are some large metallic brads from Hobby Lobby and the red satin ribbon is salvaged from Christmas wrapping. (I can't stand to throw away any ribbon!)
Thanks for stopping by!
Julie

I didn't even know that SU had flocked paper, but you are right, it takes a Tilda to make your hands actually cut paper like that! The red and white color scheme is quite striking and very pretty.
