Just Magnolia shape challenge

All was not lost after all on Friday having no E00 pen to colour my faces as I remembered I had coloured a Tilda for a Just Magnolia challenge a couple of weeks ago to go with some BoBunny papers and then decided the dress was too orange and needed to be pinker so I coloured her again but saved the one in the wrong colour, so all I had to do was match her up with some papers LOL, thank goodness for that! My refill ink came the next day but I'd already made this, but at least now I can colour again...yay!!!

I drew the shape of the card by drawing round different sized circles to form the curves (I used ribbon spools to draw round) I only had the aqua paper that really matched Tilda so used the Magnolia new year swirl and butterflies to make the paper behind Tilda and also added some liquid pearl dots, then I stamped the falling lilacs behind Tilda with plum q chalk so that they were still round Tilda after I cut her out. I cut two large butterflies out and made their antennae with some green wire. I couldn't find a place I was happy with to put a sentiment without spoiling the card so decided to hang it on a piece of wire


The inside is quite plain as I didn't have a pen to colour another Tilda! Might add a Tilda to the inside now I have some ink. I stamped some small butterflies in the centre of the shape and they have glitter wings and I cut out two large butterflies and stamped their antennae onto the card.
