For You


Happy Wednesday Everyone!!  

I think this is my most favorite Tilda EVER!!  Her name is Tilda With Balloon, and she's part of the adorable Magnolia - So Special Collection.  I just love her hair and the shy little tilt of her head...pure sweetness!!  You can purchase yours online at 7 Kids College Fund who also has the NEW Rainbow Collection on pre-order!!  Have you seen it?!?!  OMGosh!!  This Rainbow Collection just may be CUTEST yet!!    

  And can you believe it?!?!  I actually managed to color a shade of blonde that I LOVE!!  If you've followed my blog for awhile then you will know that I never color hair blonde because I can never seem to find THE right blonde.  All of my blonde attempts end up brunettes.  :)  And in case anyone is curious, let me share with you the insane amount of Copic's I used... E50, E41, E31, YR31, Y26, E34 and a touch of YR20.  See?  Told ya it was insane!!  LOL  

This is also my first card with a banner and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.  I of course LOVE everyone else's cards with banners, and HAD to have a banner die to try it myself.  I found it very difficult to incorporate it into the layout and could only manage to fit 3 pennants even though the card size is a 5 1/2" square. I spent an embarrassing amount of time fiddling with the arrangement until I felt like it didn't look awkward. But I was determined to include a banner on THIS card!!  LOL  So hopefully I managed to make it work design wise.

I don't think I can say enough how fabulous the coloring is on this!! I am floored, it looks sooooo nice! Also, all those copics for the hair color were worth it too, it is a great shade of Blonde! WTG!

That's my one and only Maglnolia Stamp that own......your fault. I am afraid to check out that Rainbow Collection. I'm sure I will see them on your cards soon enough. I love your banner! I bought the PTI banner set and still have yet to use it. I'm afraid of it for some reason. Looks great on your card and I love that ribbon, too!

Denise Marzec said...

Oh my my myyyyyy is that ever PRETTY! Maybe it was a lot of Copics for the blonde, but hey, it WORKS, girlie! Thanks so much for sharing those, too...I'm always struggling to find the right blondes as well so I usually end up coloring brunette instead. I LOVE your deep teal colors on her dress, too. Care to share those colors?

Julie said...

I like the scalloping on the top of the pennants & the way that colour & texture picks up on the ruffled ribbon across the card - besides which the scallops echo the bottom of her dress. Love the hair colour too.
