Thank You Friend

This card was made using one of the new stamps from Magnolia, Dinner Tilda. She is part of the Yummy for your Tummy collection that is available over at Diana's shop. She, and all of the others, are just soooo cute!!

This card qualifies for five challenges:There are so many wonderful challenges out there, and I usually can't get to them all, so I like to combine as many as I can. I usually only have the weekends, and some evenings, to create and I love it sooo much that I want to enter them all --- LOL!! Does that make me a challenge junkie???

OK - so on to the showing. I used pastels for my colors. The circle paper is from Nana's Kids collections by DCWV. The other papers are just textured card stock (one of my favs for creating).
I used Prisma and other flowers on the front. I sprayed the large flower with shimmerz. I added a rhinestone to the center of the two smaller flowers. Tilda is seated on polka dotted ribbon and there is also some behind the large flower. The sentiment says "Thanks my friend".

I added some small beads to Tilda for her bracelet and necklace. I also added on to her ear for an earring. She also has a small lime green flower in her hair. Her shoes have Crystal Glaze added to make them look like patent leather. I used a light gray to give her some shadow.
The inside of the card is made after the sketch using the same papers.
The left inside says "Friendship isn't a big thing, it's a million little things" I added more flowers and placed rhinestones in the middle.
The right side has a pink non-textured journal mat with a polka dotted bow and a little rhinestone in the lower corner.

This was a fun sketch and lots of fun colors! TFL!!
