Magnolia-Licious Challenge DT - Inspirational Photo

Woohoo!!  It is time for another Magnolia-Licious Challenge and it is my turn to choose an inspirational photo for the challenge! 
 Here's the photo - taken in my dining room lol!  I love this little corner in my dining room and have taken my inspiration from the canvas on the wall and the lily in the vase.  I added some stamping to my backing paper to mimic the canvas - a swirl stamp in black in the bottom corner, and a letter A stamp in the top left corner.
I have used the gorgeous Tilda With Corn #311 and coloured her with copics, adding stickles to the bows in  her hair.  Don't you just love her gorgeous long braids!?
I used some Hero Arts stamps to create the butterflies, stamping onto coloured paper and added stickles around the edges of their wings.
I added flowers from my stash and created the large lily by taking apart a poinsettia from my stash and reassembling with some stamens.
I used Tim Holtz butterflight on the edge along the left hand side...
....and Tim Holtz doily on the edge die at the top.  The post card stamp is also from Tim Holtz.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-Licious Challenge!  As always you have a chance of winning a fabulous $25 gift certificate for the Magnolia-Licious store!!
