Tilda with Bunny Balloon for Marvelous Magnolia

Happy Thursday folks!  Just one more day till the weekend!  Weekends for me (among other things) mean more time to craft, so I'm always looking forward to them. starts a new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia and it's another easy one.  Pretty Pearls, we want to see pearls of some sort on your project.  Easy right?

I was have one of my 'try something different' moments when I made this card and really wanted to try out a card with folds.  I went for a 'magic' card I've seen a few and they always look pretty.

I followed this basic tutorial but I changed the dimensions slightly. It came out like this.

I used Tilda with Bunny Balloon, one of the new stamps from the Magnolia Lost & Found collection.  I think she's just adorable.  I paired her up with some beautiful Pion paper. This is Poem of Spring from the Fairytale of Spring collection, the delicate colours are just lovely.   

I went a little overboard with the pearls lol, but it is the theme of the challenge and I really thought that they suited this style of card.  

With this style of card you really need to decorate all of it with DP as it's pretty much all on show one way or another as you can see from these photos.

I stamped her again inside the card, there's still plenty of room to write a message, and added a sentiment to the underside of the flap.  

I even decorated the back!

I do hope you'll join in our challenge which runs for the next 2 weeks, we have 3 great sponsors
The Rubber Buggy, Stamping Tilda, Scrapbooking Boutique
 who are offering some fab prizes.  Pop over to the blog to check it out and while you're there take a look at the work of my fellow DT members, they really are fantastic!

Well that's it from me for today, enjoy the rest of your Thursday, I'll be back on Sunday with my midway reminder post for Totally Tilda. : ) x x
