Just Magnolia challenge – Anniversary – and a surprise!!

My 16th wedding anniversary is today so I made my Knight in Shining Armor a special card. This card was made using the pattern at Just Magnolia. This is a great card, I love it and will probably make lots more.

This tent card uses  Tilda with key and I used her to represent the key to my heart. I punched black hearts to go with the red, cream, green and black papers. I added some Prima flowers and a couple of charms. The one hanging from the flower is a heart that says Love. I also sprayed the flower with Smooch spritz.

I cut out the opening using Curved Rectangles Nestabilities. I also added a paper doily behind Tilda and inked it up with a Rangers distress pad.

I didn’t take the best picture of Tilda but I did get a close up of the charm that I attached her to so that she would hang.

The copics that I used are:

  • Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20
  • Dress and hair – E13, E15, E17, E19
  • Key – C3, C5, C7

On the hearts I used Copics spica.

On the back of my card I used the nestie that I used on the front … talk about recycling … for my mat.

Now, for the surprise!!

I am getting close to 100 followers and as soon as I reach that I will be offering some candy …. this will be my first candy offering since entering the world of blogging. It has been a slow climb to reach where I am at but hey, that’s OK. So, followers, tell your friends to come and follow me! For every 25 more followers I receive I will add a new set of candy so there will be more than one winner. Keep watching!!

Have a great day, off to work I go!
