Magnolia Tilda Halloween Easel Card

Hello Sweet Readers,

Thank you for stopping by! It's been such a long week for me as my sweet husband has been gone for the past eight days and has just gotten home! It was just me and my two little fur babies. They are such good listeners!

Well, today I want to share with you the card I created for the Magnolia-licious Photo Inspiration Challenge. Here is the image that got my creative juices flowing:

Isn't this just a gorgeous photo? I love the colors and I just love, love, love the scene! I knew, right away, what paper I would use! Here is my card:

I have had this stamp since it first came out. This is the first time I have inked her up! She is one of my favorites! I knew I wanted her for Halloween! Here is the rest of the card - guess what - I made it another easel! That's #3 for me! Woo Hoo!

I didn't want to cover up my paper (since it was the connection to the photo) so I kept the bottom minimal (for me, LOL). Here are some details:

There is a removable tag on the top right. You use the bow with the charm as the pull. I used lots of layering. The size of the card is about 6 1/2 x 6 1/2. The clock face has been covered with black Kindyglitz. I also used the Kindyglitz on the candy tops in the bag. There are so many die cuts used. On the bottom, I added a bow and just three small flowers. There is a Halloween ticket tuckd under the bow. The sentiment tags (top and bottom) are from my stash. Tilda has been hand painted.
