Tilda with Pony Tails

Here we are into another year. Happy New year to all my followers and I pray that 2012 will be a healthy prosperous and happy year for you all.
I am slowly getting better after my lung operation so I was able to make an easel card. I got a lovely Christmas card from a Maggie friend that used this die cut so I just had to have it to use myself.
It is a Marianne design Creatables. A really good size for the Magnolia stamps. The little heart pearls around the edges are Jewelry seals. (like what you would use to decorate your mobile phone). The flowers are handmade ones using punches from Fun expressions. I colored Tilda with pony tails using Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

                                A picture of my card closed


                                         This is it opened


                                          A side view
                             A close up of the flowers
The flowers are very simple ones as I needed them to be quite flat for closing. The pearls in the middle are from Viva called a Pearl Pen. Color Ice white. Not sure about the black background. I thought it would show up the pale card better!!!

Hi Maz and WOW your card is an absolute beauty! Such a wonderful shape and the easel design is stunning. I love your colouring in this sweet Tilda and your sponged edging around the circles, I must try that :). The flowers....well what can I say, they're exquisite, I'm going to have to be looking for 'fun punches' LOL!

I love the black background by the way, very atmospheric and shows of your gorgeous card to perfection.

Hope you're doing OK and have a good weekend.

Hugs,
Chris xx
