Sweet Tilda Miss You!

I had a chance to work on a card over the weekend and decided to enter Sweet Tilda in two challenges:  Just Magnolia Challenge #43 with a lovely sketch by Jay Jay, and Magnolia Down Under - Easel card, Everybody Art Challenge - Easel Card.  I'm so close to the deadline for MDU so I took a pic tonight and the lighting is not the best so it looks dreary - my apologies.  After I finished, I thought I put too many things on my card, but I still wanted to conform to the sketch.  Oh well, it's finished so I'll have to remember "less is more" on my next card LOL.
 
Recipe:
Stamp:  Magnolia - Sweet Tilda from the Raising the Ceiling Collection
CS:  Bazzill
DP:  Basic Grey - Lemonade
Copics:  Clothing:  Y08, Y11, RV11, RV10; Hair:  E29, E25, E34; Shoes: E37, E34
Punches:  MS Double Loop Border and Grass punches; Marvy (blue) heart punch
Misc:  Cuttlebug Love Language mini heart embossing folder and die (Miss You); yellow flowers are Michael's wedding flowers, and mini roses are from my stash.  Cut green petal with pink Swarovski crystal) is also from Michael's.
The sentiment on the inside is from Stampin' Up!

Thank you for stopping by to visit with Sweet Tilda.  Tomorrow is mid-week and we're getting closer to the weekend.  Hubby returns from a business trip to Japan tomorrow so the house won't feel so "empty."  I wish you all a fun-filled week and weekend.

I am so behind in leaving messages on everybodies blog.

This is absolutely stunning, Cami. The lacy MS punch adds a lot of elegant airyness (is that a word) to this beautiful creation. The colors are just lovely.
