Spring Kit and Friday Sketchers

Good Evening!

I spent some time with the new Magnolia Spring Kit today...what a lovely way to spend the day!! I am thrilled with all of the images included in the kit.

Here's a little close up of one of the new Tilda images. Isn't she just gorgeous??

I've created my card today using a sketch over at the Friday Sketchers Challenge blog. It looks like I've finished just in time to be able to enter this card in challenge #97. I've included the gorgeous sketch below which was designed by Beatrix.

I'm using the remaining pieces of my Basic Grey paper left over from yesterday's card. Once again, the papers are from the Sugared collection. I've added some light pink chandelier glass garland that I purchased over at the Magnolia-Licious store. The wired glass garland is absolutely beautiful and really easy to work with!! I've unwrapped a couple of wired strands and twisted them around my flower.

The flower is created by layering lots of silk petals from a floral stem I bought at Michael's. The petals are all held together with a rhinestone brad. The ribbon is a wide Chocolate Satin from Stampin Up!

Here is a list of the Copic Colors:
Y11, Y21, Y26, E0000, E00, YG63, RV0000, RV00, RV10, RV21, RV23, RV25, 0
(Normally I use E000 instead of E0000 but I'm waiting for my reinker to arrive so I'm subbing the lighter color.)
Her cheeks are blushed with a little pink chalk.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Julie,
I love this Tilda and can't wait to get my spring collection. You ahve colored her so beautifully. She looks so soft. Her hair looks gorgeous. I love the DP you have used.
The flower and the ribbon finish the card off nicely.
