Just Magnolia, Grey and Pink


My friend Christine from "dolcreations" inspired me with her own card to get in on the current Just Magnolia challenge. The challenge is to use grey and pink, with black optional. I used my Tilda with Hood stamp and colored her with my Copics. I was wanting to try the Flower Soft for the fur and it turned out okay. I used my Lace Tree embossing folder for my Cuttlebug and brayered it with pink on my silver paper from SU. I used Flourishes Poinsettias and Boxwoods set for the poinsettia and heat embossed it on two shades of pink and cut it out. The background DP is Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly and the sentiment is stamped from my Inkadinkadoo alphabet. I added pink sparkly rhinestones to my tree and poinsettias and I was pleased that I finally got to ink up a cute little Tilda. This challenge ends tomorrow night, so I need to get this posted. Tomorrow is our 13th Copic Creations Challenge and I think you'll love what the DT has in store for you. As always, thanks for stopping by.

I thought about using this Tilda and doing a grey coat but decided to use a different one. I can see from yours that it would have turned out adorable. Nice job.
