Tilda With Flowing Hair

Hi everyone!! I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted something on my blog. I had intended to post this card earlier but I wanted to make sure that it had arrived to the recipient as it was a Magnolia-licious mingle card for the month of April.

I'm really still liking the look of easel cards so I used a Magnolia stamp (Tilda With Flowing Hair) to help me create one (I cased the idea for this card from a class that I did at my LSS, The Paper Pickle). I stamped the image with Memento ink on cardstock that I bought from my LSS The Paper Pickle (I can't remember who makes it but I really like it) and coloured the image up with my Stampin' Write markers. The remaining cardstock is from SU! (Certainly Celery and So Saffron) and the patterned paper is from the Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients kit. To finish off my card, I used some ribbon from SU! (So Saffron), a scallop border punch from SU!, some clear rhinestones for some added bling, and some flower stuff to just add that little extra something.

I'm really happy with how this card turned out and really glad to hear that the recipient enjoyed it as well. Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest card...I should have more cards to share with you again soon!!
