Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop - May Mini Tilda

I didn't get this posted this morning due to the power outage. What happened I don't know, but about 44,000 homes were without power. So glad to have it back on. My dd and I didn't know what to do with ourselves so we took a long walk and then went to bed early. I'm glad I don't have to live without electricity very often.  Anyway here is my card for today.

Tilda is celebrating with balloons. Not the usual fare for Christmas but I just got this mini Tilda and wanted to try it out. Everything is colored with copics. I stamped Tilda three times. I cut out the first one and the other two I just did the balloons.  I also stamped Tilda on the green nestabilities cut out and then adhered a colored Tilda to it. Then I added the two extra balloons and drew in the extra strings. The banner across the top was done with the computer, the shadows were done with copics. The poinsettias are from hero arts and the centers are from Robin's Nest. There is green ribbon on the side and a piece of mini rickrack from my sewing supplies. The dp is from bo bunny. 
Hope you enjoyed my creation.
