Just Magnolia - Happy {Heart} Day

Hello my friends!
A Happy Sunday to you all - I hope you're enjoying the weekend and managing to get those fingers really inky, lol!!!
I made this card yesterday with the Just Magnolia challenge in mind - Paper Pleating. I won the January Paper Card Kit from Paper Works Co at the release of their last stamp set. And they are gorgeous!! They're from the new My Minds Eye 'Be Loved' range. I am not a huge peachy colour fan but these papers are just wow! I love them. The kit includes cardstock, dp, MME 'Be Loved' accessories, ribbons and embellishments - enough to make at least 10 cards!! What a prize!
So, knowing what papers I wanted to use I went ahead and started colouring Tilda on my Neenah cardstock (love this stuff) with my copics. I chose this new image from the 'Raising the Ceiling' collection. I decided to paper pleat a 'ladder' so it gives the effect that Tilda has climbed up and is sitting on the rungs. I used the MS Heart Lace punch either side of the paper pleating. I have managed to use all my paper cut offs on this card. I used some white tulle to make a bow. The sentiment I just picked up in Michaels in the $1.50 bin. I added 3 pearls in the other 2 corners. And because I used a wack of new stash on this card I'm also going to enter it into the Cute Card Thursday challenge - All New.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out- Mina gave a fantastic tutorial on paper pleating so made that element to the card quite easy! Thanks for visiting today - I hope you enjoy the card I made and maybe you'll get time to enter into the Just Magnolia challenge this week too!
Enjoy your day whatever you're doing!
