A Little Gift for You....

Hello,

How are you today? Here we are starting another weekend I hope you had a good week and have a great weekend planned!


I have made a card with this sweet Tilda from Magnolia's latest You are so Special Collection. I absolutely adore her and have coloured her with distress ink pads.

I have distressed everything on my card with walnut stain and the stickles are star dust. 

The flower is a Magnolia Doohickey die which I have sprayed with Pearl glimmer mist and distressed with walnut stain. The tag and leaves are also Doohickey dies. 

The seam binding which I love to use as it is perfect with Magolia I have distressed with tattered rose.



Thank you so very much for your visit and I wish you all a fabulous weekend!

love
