Just Magnolia Week 1 "A Sketch for You"

This week is the first challenge over on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. For my card I have dug out a cute Tilda from last years Shabby Chic Collection and coloured her with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Vintage Photo (Hair)
Fired Brick/Faded Jeans/Peeled Paint (All Clothing)
The papers are Octobers Afternoon "Detours" and I have added some ribbon from my stash and some Prima bling to the centre of the flowers....all finished off with a sentiment by Craftwork Cards.

As always now, I have decorated the inside...

The DT is full of fab card designers from all over the crafting world....and their work is gorgeous. They also have one truly amazing prize this week......it is HUGE.

I agree that Magnolias stamps are just wonderful! But your card is really nice. I think you have done a excellent interpretation of the sketch and the coloring is beutiful!
