Snowy Tilda Loves a Magnolia-licious Challenge!

How about you?

Hi Dearest Readers,

Guess what? It's that time again! Time for the new Inspirational Challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog! Here is the photo that serves as the source of your inspiration:

Isn't that a gorgeous photo? Feel free to go with the flow! Use the colors, wintery theme (which is what I did), image reflection (which is what our amazing Jane did) - whatever moves you! As always, there is one lucky gal who will win this -

Here is my card. Oh, guess what I did? I added eyelashes to Tilda! *giggle* I've not seen anyone do that before, so maybe I'll start a trend! LOL, LOL, LOL!

Here, I tried to capture some of the sparkle that just makes the front extra special.I also used silver metallic thread for the stitching. That added such a subtle sparkly look!

These are the inside images:

I just loved the blues and browns in the Inspirational Photo. I used the following items from Magnolia-licious. Diana is currently out of some of the products I've used, but if you are interested, please let Diana know. Diana is wonderful about special ordering!

Snowy Tilda Stamp - currently out of stock
Leaf and Swirl Doo-hickey Die
Winter Fence Stamp - currently out of stock
Cozy Big Snowflake Doohickey Die
Love Trees Stamp - this is an older stamp that Diana may be able to get
Chocolate Label Stamp
Slender Firs Doohickey Die - currently out of stock
Postcard Stamp
Bloomy Tag Doohickey Die - This is an older die. Check with Diana for availability.

On the inside left panel, I've constructed an envelope with a note card inside. I thought the stamp was a perfect addition!
