My wonderful friend, Diana, let me stamp off a few of her newest Magnolia stamps recently. This one is Tilda with Cowberry Muffin. I'm not sure what a cowberry is - would I even want to eat one? But she's cute, anyway. ;-)
I was anxious to make a card with her, so I used her on this card for the June sketch challenge over on the Magnolia-licious Hi-lites blog.
The printed papers are from a new stack I bought at Hobby Lobby this week. It's by DCWV and it's called Blossoms and Butterflies. You can't really tell in the photo, but the pink paper is glittered. I also used glitter on the top of the muffin/cupcake. To add more sparkle, I used my clear Spica pen on her wings and some metallic fiber from my stash on the button. (It's more blue in person.) The flourishes are a Quickutz die I used in my Cuttlebug. That corner of the card looked "empty" without something there. Also, I used some Belle Rose Palette ink to sponge my plain oval (which was cut with my trusty CM Shapemaker cutting system). I liked the dimension it added and it helped tie the lighter pink oval into the bright pink background paper. (This paper is even brighter in person!)
