She's Just Dreamy...

Hello Again Everyone!  We're all well now in our household.  I took my last antibiotic this evening and I felt pretty darn good all day.  Yippie for me!!!  It's still freezing cold here in Michigan and we're expecting a snow storm to hit tomorrow night.  We've been pretty lucky this year with only a few minor snow falls.  But this one promises to be a big one.  Nothing like what they're getting in DC though.  Still, it'll be a nuisance.

I had a lot of work to do today since I was out sick all last week.  First things first though, after dropping my son off at school this morning, I ventured over to Archiver's to do some birthday shopping for myself.  My family had a little birthday party for me last night and gifted me some shopping cards to my favorite brick and mortar.  They had just received a new shipment in so it was perfect timing.  Among other things, I found some of the beautiful new flowers by Prima.  You'll see some on my card below.  I also bought some gorgeous dp's, some of which you will also see on my card.

So, once I got my work done, I was off to my craft room for a little fun.  My goal today was to create a card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge #32.  The theme is Gray & Pink and guess which color paper I never buy???  You guessed it!  Gray!!!  There isn't that much to choose from at the craft store either.  But, I think I found a stunning gray dp.  I'm very happy with it.  Anyway, after perusing through some of the challenge blogs, I found two more that I decided to enter as well.  So here's my list of challenges for this card:

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Gray & Pink

Sweet Stampin - Floral Frenzy

Lili of the Valley - Valentines

Sketch Saturday - Sketch

And now..........here's my card!

Dreamy Tilda

Ain't she purdy?  I just love this stamp.  I found her HERE at Magnolia-licious.  The best place in town for all of your Magnolia needs.  Check it out.  Diana has tons of new inventory to choose from right now.  So, the dp's are Pink Paislee and Basic Grey.  I just love them together.  I added some chocolate brown with the use of the Stampin' Up cs and I think the effect is beautiful.  The flowers are my new ones from Prima.  Dontcha just love em'?  The ribbon is from Making Memories and I made the bow with my Bow Easy.  I had to add a sentiment but didn't want to cover up the coordinating pink accent in the layered dp, so I used a white rub-on from Making Memories.  Martha Stewart pink pearls added just the right touch of elegance.  The hanging heart is from Blue Moon Beads.  It just screams 'love' doesn't it?

Here you can see the Copics used to color Tilda.  I also used Ranger Distress Inks for the suggestion of grass and to add more depth to the shadowed areas.

I hope you all have a fantastic week.  Try to find some time to color.
