TOMIC and magnolia-licious challenge

i made the cutest little card today!  :)  The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge  is to make a fruity pocket, and i have some adorable little vintage strawberry fabric that i took to staples and colored copied, and i thought this would be the perfect oppertunity to use it! :) and magnolia-licious  has a wonderful picture for their color inspiration i love the berry tones in this and the green! :) 

so using these two components i made the following card and im entering it in both challenges :)


i love the way this card turned out!  i used my copies for the background and just plain colored cardstock for the mats and die cut outs.  i used the large spellbinders beaded circle die that i inked with Martha stewart's spray rose pink stamp pad, and inked a magnolia doohicky with brown, and added a circle of origami paper behind tilda and edges the whole circle with some white lace that i inked wit tim holtz peeled paint destress stain.  i added a flourish that is inked with the peeled paint and spun sugar to created a tie died effect, add some small pink i am roses, and some large silk roses that i got from hobby lobby, added a tag that i embellished with lace fabric and a sentiment from fisker's, and some stamped paper roses inked onto crackled paper.

 here' a close up of the tag,
 here's the flower corner, i forgot that i added some pearls from say it in pearls too.
 and little strawberry tilda herself! :) she's so cute! :)

 the pocket is on the inside, i thought it would be a great place to add a photo, invitation, gift card, long letter or whatever.  just to make it a bit different on the inside.



thanks for stopping by!

  8. Nanette, this is beautiful. I haven't used this Tilda for a while now. Nice to see her all coloured up--you've done a wonderful job. Gorgeous embellishments you have--love the doily and the die cuts. Great to see that you've decorated the inside also.
