Angels and Butterflies

Today I finally finished a card I started back in the middle of June!  I loved the card but knew it needed more and I didn't have what I wanted so I waited.  Once I had what I wanted I didn't have the time so I waited some more...Today I had not only the supplies but the time to complete it.

I used Tilda with Bare Feet and I just LOVE how she's facing away from you and you can see her little wings and tiny toes.  What a cutie!
The paper I used is from The Paper Loft.  Tilda was colored with copic markers and I also did some paper piecing on her scarf and overalls.  Love the look!
I also used a lovely gold ribbon slide with some New England Ivy ribbon from CTMH.  I also used paper flowers from Crafta and Wild Orchid Crafts.  The butterfly is from my stash.

Butterflies is the theme for our Magnolia-licious Yahoo group Mingle and Kit Swap this month.  If you'd like to join in the fun, click on the link in my side bar on the left.

I'm not sure what I plan on doing with this cute little Tilda but chances are, she'll end up in the hands of my lovely mingle partner!!

Here are the pics of my card.  Enjoy!

This one shows the popped details of Tilda sitting on the fence.  I colored the bottom image gray except for her feet, those I colored normal.  Then I colored the top image but cut off her feet.  I popped the two images together to give it more of a dimensional feel.  Now it really does look like she's sitting on the fence.  I also created the background, it's supposed to be a sunset LOL 

This one is just a close up of the image itself.  
Have a Simply Magnolia Day!
