April Mingles Card

Shhh! This is the card that my Mingles partner will receive. I just mailed it today. Normally, I would have posted later but I want to enter the Magnolia-licious challenge "Flowers".



The image is Tilda with egg and chicken and is colored with copics. She is mounted on Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Tags 8 frame. The sentiments are from the same die set and were done on the computer on white cardstock and colored with copics also. The cross hearts are from the Cricut cartridge New Testament. They are cut at 1"  and colored with copics. I then used Cinnamon stickles on the cross. I painted the heart with USArtQuest paint, covered with Gloss PPA and sprinkled with Opal Essence Glitter. The lace is from Walmart I think. The flowers came from Michaels. I tied ribbon onto a Tim Holtz Memo pin and inserted it into the bouquet. The leaves are done using a Magnolia  Heart Swirl Die.  The heart DP is some old paper from a Creative Memories set. I've had it for a long time.

Here are the challenges I want to enter:

Gorgeous Easter card, Annette. Easel cards are my fave type of card. Love this adorable Tilda--wonderfully coloured. That rectangular die cut frame looks terrific. Love the gorgeous flowers and the pearly lace.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.
