GDT card for Simply Magnolia

Very exciting news today, I am so trilled and honored for this opportunity to be GDT
for Simply Magnolia 



the theme for the challenge is

Layers and Lace
Use at least 4 layers on your card (includes base) and also add Lace



Not a problem for me, love to add layers and lace.  My papers are Whimsy Cottage Garden, so perfect to match with my stamp.  For my card shape I used Martha Stewart Cherish combo punches on Kraft cardstock.



My Stamped image is Tilda with an armful of tulips from the Butterfly Wishes Collection.  I used Spellbinders Floral Oval die and added Fran-tage Shabby White and pearls.

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Violet: V17, V15, V12, V1, V0000
Apron : W3, W1, W00
Green : YG67, YG63, YG25, YG0000
Hair : E47, E57, E34, E51



The fence is Marianne Creatables Fran-taged with Shabby white and butterflies are Magnolia Butterfly Kit from Once Upon a Time Collection, colored with copics and I added a coat og Glossy accents.  For the butterfly antennas I simply add Black tread glued to the back, a little trick I learned from a class with Jennifer McGuire.


Flowers and Seam binding ribbon are fro WOC.


My tag is Magnolia Doohickey's So Wrapped Lovely Die, Butterfly charm was also Fran-taged with Shabby White, love this stuff.  My hanger is handmade by me using Floral wrapped wire then heat embossing it with Shabby White

Louise, your card is lovely! I like the way you picked the brown as the background, as this pushes forward the violets and makes Tilda more of a central focus.
