An old Magnolia ....

Hello folks!
I hope you are all enjoying this last day before school starts up tomorrow (for us anyway!!). The weather is miserable; snowy, windy, cold. So, what better way than to spend my Sunday wrapped up in my craft room!
I popped over to The Stamp Shoppe blog and saw that the new challenge this month is to use an old Magnolia image. Well, this was one of my very first purchases from Magnolia - wow, hasn't Tilda grown up and changed along the way! OK, so now just having reviewed the challenge it also calls for your oldest paper too - hmmm, forgot to check that one off - this is BG Wisteria - not old at all! Ah well, I'll still submit it and perhaps I'll do another one!
Anyways, Tilda is coloured with my Distress Inks. I followed the sketch off Friday Sketchers and you may not be able to tell, but I used a half-circle of acetate and embossed it. I didn't want to cover up the gorgeous Wisteria paper!! Ribbon, mini flowers, pearl brads and the sentiment finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek today. I thank you for the comments you leave and hope you are able to take some inspiration from my card today.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
Hugs,
Danielle x

This is gorgeous Danielle. Using the acetate is a brilliant idea, such a good way to add detail but as you say you can still see the beautiful paper.
Have a great week.
