Pink-a-licious

Monday there was a blog hop and a challenge to make a pink-a-licious card using a Magnolia stamp on the magolicious yahoo group. My mind went to Valentine's Day and hearts, hence my choice of this Tilda.



I paper pieced her dress and apron and colored the lace and scallops with a white pen.  The wings were done with shimmerz and stickles. The rest of Tilda is done with copics. Oh the hearts in the basket and her ribbon were done with cotton candy pink stickles.  I cut some of the hearts off the ribbon and colored them with copics and added them around for Tilda to toss in the air. The oval scallops were done with nestabilities.

How creative to take the hearts off the ribbon and use them on the card! The effect is great.
