One from the new Tilda Magnolia Collection

Hi folks! Such a long time since my last post... have been busy busy with the twins birthday party and my friends getting Married last week. Kiddies are back to school today, so all is quite in the Dry household :o)
This is the first card I have made with my new Tilda's... I love this new collection. I'm sure you've seen all the other characters in blogland. For my card I went straight for my DCWV 'Once Upon a Time' stack as I thought the papers would be perfect. Using one of the papers to cover the card base; a Cuttlebug die to create the corners; some self adhesive ribbon (also from the DCWV set) and more of the patterned paper to create the mat (I aged it a bit by scrunching it up and distressing the edges) I did a bit of masking with Tilda and the background then watercoloured them. I cut the circles using Nestabilities and coloured the centre circle with distress inks. The stamped sentiment is one by Paula Pascual and the tiny butterflies were created using my Martha Stewart punch. To finish off I dusted with a little glamour dust.
I made this card with the following challenges in mind.... but that was a few days ago so I'm not sure if they're still current:
Truly Scrumptious - Sketch, By the Cute and Girly - Fairytale, Raising the bar - Movie Mania, Stamp Something - Something layered, Papertake weekly - Cutie Pie, Magnolia Down Under - Masking, Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely.
Ciao for now!

Spot on with the papers and this particular Tilda, it works so well together. As usual your eye for colour and detail make for a truly lovely card.

Hi Sandra.
Hope you had a great Easter Hols and a belated Happy Birthday to your twins, I bet that was a busy day!!
I love your card. Your new Tilda is beautiful. I was never a fan of them really but I'm sure they've got cuter, or maybe it's just me weakening!!
She looks very glam in her fairy castle and well done for getting in so many challenges!!
Hope you have a good week.
