My last Tilda card for my Magnolia Class

Hi everyone!
Kinda glad it's Monday and the boys are back at school - it was a busy weekend and without hubby here I just didn't get a break to stamp at all :(  Ah well, this afternoon hopefully when my little guy is at Nursery School.
I completed the trio of Tilda cards though for my Magnolia class at Heather's and this is the final one. I used giggling Tilda sitting on the cupcake.  I coloured the images with Distressing Inks and Tombow markers on watercolour paper.  The cupcake frosting is 'glazed' with glossy accents although you can't see too much of it!  I paper pleated the middle panel to add some technique into the card.  The back stamp is a solid from one of the sets from The Stamp Barn. It makes a nice change to use some stamps and create my own backgrounds rather than relying on the beautiful papers all the time!
The clear organza ribbon down the middle panel and gem stones in each corner give the finishing touches to the card.  As you know I don't often use yellow, I tend to shy away from it as it's not a favourite colour of mine.  So, I'm still sitting on the fence about this card but I think it's more to do with the yellow in it rather than anything else, lol!!
Thanks for coming by and paying me a visit.  Hope you're enjoying your day whatever you're doing!
Hugs,

This card is so nice Danielle. I love the colour yellow! I love how you did the ribbon. Did it come that way or did you lovingly make it like that? That would have been alot of work.
I love shy Tilda..I may have to add her to my growing collection!!
Thanks again for always inspiring me!
