Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Daffodil Tilda

Hi everyone!
I'm back for a second posting today - and get this, it's yellow again!! Can you believe that, lol. Well, let me tell you it was not through choice that I did a yellow card again, but it was the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under that made me do it!! It was actually a perfect choice for this sweet Tilda image (received from Linda) as I decided to add little yellow flowers to the grass and make Tilda stand amongst the daffodils. Can you sense how desperate I am for spring??

This card actually fell together really nicely and quickly - love it when that happens. The 3 elements to the challenge were to:-

1. Use Tilda
2. Use yellow ribbon
3. Have a flower on the card

Well, I think I have all of those pretty well covered don't you think? I didn't want to add a sentiment but I felt the ribbon needed a little something extra so I tied the metal charm 'Live' to it. I coloured Tilda in with my copics using E00, R02, YR21, Y11, Y15, YG03, YG13, YR21, YR24, YG95 & E34. The flower is from stash and I added a pearl brad for its center. The daffodil flower heads are a small punch and I added White Opal Liquid Pearls to their centers. I sponged the sky behind Tilda with Versamagic blue chalk ink.
Thanks for stopping by again today - I love having you come and visit! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday - we're off to take the boys swimming again!

Hugs,

Hi Danielle!! It is me again! I am so excited to be following your blog. It is beautiful! Thanks for following mine too! My daughter was so cute. I told her that I had a new follower. (she askes me everyday if I made any new friends on my blog) She asked me what your name was and when I told her she asked me to tell you that she LOVES your name and she thinks it is really pretty. :) 6 year olds are so sweet. :) I am so excited to keep in touch!
