Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop

Can you believe it is the 25th of March already. It was so pretty here today but it is supposed to get cold. BRR! Oh well spring is on the way - really. If you just happened to my blog you might want to start at the beginning of  the blog hop here.  If you came from the talented Nadyne;s blog you are on the right track. I chose Tilda with roses to use for my card today. You could really use her for almost any time of the year even though she is from a Christmas collection. 

Tilda is colored with copics. Her halo has gold stickles. There are also stardust stickles for highlights around the flowers and for the twinkling of the halo. I don't remember who makes the dp. The rhinestone swirl is from Multicraft Imports. The roses in the corner were cut out using a my favorite things die cut. The felt was really a hot pink but I colored them with different red copics. The hearts were cut out with nestabilities, as was the cardstock around Tilda. 
Here is what the inside looks like.
Copics used
reds : R29, R27, R24
greens: G28, G24, G22, G20
browns for hair: E35,  E34, E33
shadows: G20, Y00, C1, C3
face: E0000 E000, E00, R20

Your next stop on the trail is Robin's blog.

Hope you enjoyed my card and the hop.
