Challenge at Magnolia-licious

Hello friends... gosh, it seems like ages since I've entered a challenge.  As I belong to the wonderful Magnolia-licious Yahoo group and get to view all my Maggie-lover friends' creations... I felt most inspired to haul out this gorgeous Tilda, which has been sitting on the shelf for far too long, and enter the current challenge on the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog...

It's a colour challenge of PINK, RED and BLACK and I hope you like my little creation for today.  I've kept the card very plain, as the DP was so pretty with all those hearts, I didn't really want to cover them up with too many layers.  Got to use my Fiskars punch again and punched out a nice heart border pattern for the top of  my card. I then placed a little red ribbon on top, made a bow and added a white and pink rose to finish it off.

My little Tilda was coloured with Copics and I'm very pleased with the result.  Tried to keep it as light as possible. The only other embellies on my card are card candy buttons and I also added some faux stitching around the DP.  Here's a side view...

And then finally a close up of our little Maggie...  I adore this one, not sure why, but she remains a huge favourite of mine...

Thank you for taking the time to pop around for a visit and if you'd like to leave a comment, please do so, as I just love reading them.

Wishing you all a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow... may you get to spend it with the people you love!  Enjoy the rest of your week... happy crafting, hugs Sharon x
