Magnolia Summer Tilda with Strawberry

Happy Sunday Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I had a chance to work on a card today now that the pain in my neck and shoulder has subsided. I didn't do much coloring or cutting out so this was great for me.

My card base is 5.5" square and I used CTMH cardstock and gingham check in Bubblegum. The DPs are Doodlebug Pink Lemonade Plaid and Berry Pink. This cute little Tilda is from the new Summer Collection. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI white CS and colored with Copics. I cut Tilda out and popped her over the top of the strawberry with foam tape.

The colors look a little darker than IRL for some reason and the strawberry is really a lighter pink, closer to the color of the gingham DP.

I added some stickles to Tildas wings and berry dew drops to the flourish I punched out with my EK Success punch. Ribbon is from my stash.

I followed the Just Magnolia #15 sketch for this week, and had fun since it went quite fast.
I haven't added a sentiment yet as I don't know for what occasion I will use this card.

Enjoy your weekend, and thank you for stopping by today.

Hope Hawaii is nice and sunny. . .it's sunny here but way too hot! Ugggh! I miss the mild temperatures in Hawaii. We've been hitting the 100s the past week or so. It feels like I'm in Vegas! LOL!

You have really used the sketch well. I always struggle to get lots of different patterned papers onto my card but you have done it perfectly.

Love how you have done the ribbon too.
