Tilda with Dexter the Dragon

Hello friends,
I took some time off of packing and made this card, just love these sweet little images from Magnolia.   I have a friend who recently became a Magnolia Designer on 3 different Magnolia Design Teams and I wanted to show her my support by entering in the challenges! Hi Karen!

I colored my image in Copics and used the "Forever Best Friends" sentiment from the same "Animal of the Year" Magnolia collection.  My image is framed with Joy Crafts 6002/0257 square frame die to and of course I Frantaged it a bit.

A Magnolia Doohickey Butterfly, LaLa Land Balloon Die and a Joy Crafts 6003/1002 Die, adorn the top right of the card.  The balloon has a bit of Frantage on it

The left side of my card has the Magnolia So Wrapped Heart die with a crocheted pink flower and Prima zipper on it.  Underneath the pink flower are 2 colors of fringed tulle to make it more girly.  The Joy 6003/1002 die is also on the side with another Magnolia Doohickey Butterfly die.  I Used the leaves included with the Joy 6002/0257 square frame die to make the feathery leaves in my florals on the bottom of the card.

Here is a better look at the leaf that comes with the Joy 6002/0257 Square Frame die and a Prima flower.

A closer look so you can see the layers

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really miss crafting and it will be quite a while until I will be back at it again.  I am enjoying your crafts and wishing you all a safe and happy Spring!
