Tilda in Blue~

Hiya All,

Feels like ages since I made a card with a Magnolia image. I have had this stamp for sometime now (March last year) and have only inked her up once, so couldn't wait to use her when I saw this lovely sketch at MDUC.
I don't often use these sort of roses/flowers on my cards, feel they are far too bulky, especially if you want to send the card to someone, I find it will not fit the envelope and being a lazy crafter! I cannot be bothered making a box envelope. I usually use a punched flower, like a NS or MS, I find these are fine and will squash down in the envelope.

Back to the card. Its made with some Basic Grey papers, June Bug they are called. A little basket shaped button, flowers and ribbon from my stash. Coloured with pro-markers.
It is a bit busy for me, I defiantly prefer the less is more look, but don't dislike it, just feels it's a bit OTT. LOL

Going to enter into:

Just Magnolia--Anything Goes and a Button
