Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop - April

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Mine was so very nice. We went to church for breakfast then had our Resurrection Worship Service. Afterward the kids all came over to my house. My oldest dd called from NY so I connected with all of them. We had a great dinner together and then they left to go back to their places. I don't like it when they leave. Oh well I guess that is why we have them to make them responsible adults but I miss them. Enough of that. 
On to my card for the Magnolia-licous Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop. Every 25th of the month we have a Christmas blog hop. If you have come from the oh so very talented Norma Lee's blog here. You are on the right track. If you happened here by chance and want to start at the beginning or get lost go here.
I chose dangling Tilda for my image this time. 

Tilda's clothes are paper pieced and accented with copics. I was just going to color Tilda but my new C9 copic marker decided to blob everywhere. I had almost finished coloring her and didn't want to start all over again so I just paper pieced her top and bottom. I tried to make it look as if she is hanging off the circle. The white circles are done with nestabilities. The pearl dots are done with iridescent white scribbles. The ribbon was a small piece I just found laying on my desk that I have no recollection of where it came from but it fit with my white theme so I used it. The punch at the bottom of the ribbon is done with a fiskars punch. The silver strip at the top is a peel-off from Magenta. The background white was embossed with an dotted embossing folder. The poinsettia stamp are from Magnolia. They were stamped with silver and embossed with silver pearl embossing powder. The centers are done with silver stickles.  The corners have have pearls in them. Around the embossed dots is silver mirror cardstock. It almost looks black in the picture. Here is another view.

Here is the inside.

The banner is done with my favorite stamps die cut. And then there are two more poinsettias. The letters are from a retired angel company stamp set.
 Here is a close-up.

Hope you enjoyed my card for the day. Now it is off to see what wonderful creation Robin created here.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
