Thank You --- From the heart

Happy New Year! So, I’ve made my first card for the new year.
Before I show you, there are several challenges that I will be entering it in:
It’s been some time since I have been able to enter some challenges so I am pretty excited to be able to do so. Next week it’s back to no more time off from work so my challenge entries will be few.
OK, so on to my card. Here it is.

I followed the sketch at Midnight Madness. My something new is this adorable Magnolia Tilda with Hanging Heart stamp that I received from my good friend Cindy.  Here is a close up. The sentiment is from the SSD Lacey Squares stamp set. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles in two colors and weaved ribbon through the top one.

I used the following Copics:
  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R21, R20
  • Dress – V99, V95, V91
  • Heart – R89, R39, B39, B34, B32
  • Hair – E99, E97, Y21
I added Ranger Stickles to her wings and also to the edges of the flowers.  I also used McGill Pine punch for my sprigs.

On the inside of the card I did a little extra, I added Tilda Wants a Hug and Magnolia’s Elegant Heart.
