Baking Tilda in Green

I just adore this "Baking Tilda" from Magnolia stamps. Maybe it's her long hair, or the sweet outfit, or the cookies fresh out of the oven but it's one of my favorite images.
You'll see a previous post where I colored this image in blue, now she appears in green and soon, you'll also see her in pink!

The paper is a glittered and embossed paper from DCWV. The Regal Rose cardstock and ribbon are from Stampin' Up. I found the silver double heart charm in the wedding department at Hobby Lobby. I'm also breaking out my Nesties and having so much fun!!

I often wondered why Tilda and Edwin from Magnolia stamps don't have mouths and why some of the image have wings while others do not. Here's the answer I found from some of the Magnolia experts at the Magnolia Yahoo group. Tilda and Edwin are angels. Sometimes the wings are visible, other times they are hidden on their back. Angels have no need for a mouth because they speak with their heart. I thought this was wonderful! It makes me love these stamps even more!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
Julie

What a lovely card. All the elements work so beautifully together and her pretty green dress is nicely accented by your paper choices. Do you remember the name of the DCWV collection? It is hard to find pretty, small scale papers. These truly complement each other and your SU paper is the perfect accent. Tilda fits perfectly in your nesties too. Wonderful card! Thanks for sharing.

This is just adorable, your bow is perfectly tied and the colors are fabulous. That is such pretty dp you've used and I love the two little hearts. What a perfect way to finish off your sweet card.
