Magnolia-Licious Challenge DT - Inspirational Photo

Woohoo!!!  It is time for another challengte at Magnolia-Licious Challenge and this fortnight we have a stunning photo for your inspiration!  I was inspired by the gorgeous aqua blue, the party table, and frilly tutus in the photo for my card.  I used Tim Holtz doily die to create the background to my image which I've edged with a tulle fringe.
I really do adore this new Tilda.  She has curly hair just like my Kara, so that always wins it for me lol!  She is called Tilda With a Gift For You #283 and I've coloured her with copics.  I added stickles to the bow on the present and her shoes and created a little tutu for her with some tulle.  This started out white and I've coloured it with distress ink to match my card.
The papers are by Magnolia from the Prince and Princesses paper collection.  I added lots of flowers from my stash.
I added a bow using ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and some more tulle.  The brad is from my stash.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Magnolia-Licious Challenge!  Pop over to the blog to see the stunning creations from my team mates - they're truly amazing!

As always Diana is sponsoring with a fabulous $25 gift certificate for the Magnolia-Licious store - how wonderful a prize is that!?!?!

  Thanks for looking! x
