Tilda with Lilacs

Good morning all!
Well, the sun is shining again today so it looks like it's going to be another beautiful day here - yay for Ontario!!
I'm putting 3 Magnolia cards together for an upcoming class at Heather's on June 20th.  This is the beautiful Tilda with lilacs.  I used flower soft on the lilacs and coloured Tilda in Tombow markers.  To make this card different though I've used a new card fold (to me anyway).  I love how this sits up - you do need to use a fairly decent weight cardstock to make sure it sits up nicely though!
The back panel is cuttlebug embossed and I used some border peel-offs to frame the panel.  I confess to not being a big fan of peel-offs but I don't mind using them in this way. 
Well, just a short post today as I need to get my day going here.  Thanks for coming by - you know I love your visits!!
Have a great day!

Very pretty card. I've seen this fold before but never tried it. It looks lovely. Peels offs definitely have their uses!

Oh Danielle! I should be starting my day but decided to just a bit of blog hopping before I do. So glad I visited you. I love your Tilda!! That style of card is awesome!! The coloring is awesome with the added texture. The peel offs are perfect on this card. I am not a real fan of these either but it is perfect here. Have a great day!

Danielle this card is awesome. I love it. I actually have this stamp which now you have given me the inspiration to colour her up!!
I love the shape to this card. What a great idea.
Danielle..if you go to she has pictures to follow to do those embellishments. It might make it a little easier for you! I am so glad you are trying it!!!

I was at Heather's today! Is it possible that she showed me this card of yours? I remember a card with this fold because I was asking about Flower Soft...and got some of course.

This is just beautiful! I may have to check my schedule to see if I can attend the class.
