Be My Valentine Tilda for Magnolia Down Under Challenge #86

Good morning! It is Magnolia Down Under Challenges time again! This week we are looking for - "Anything but a square (or rectangle)".... I have gone with a label shaped card, cut using my Cricut and the SCAL software.

 This adorable Tilda is "Be My Valentine Tilda" from the "You are So Special" collection. I was so tempted to use one of the new cuties from the Spring Club which arrived this week, but I had already coloured this Tilda and it was such a shame not to use her. I'm sure the newbies will be coloured and making their way to cards very soon! hahaha.


I've coloured Tilda with my Copics and have gone for a much softer look with my colouring. I have to say, this subtle affect is much more "me". The photos don't show it very well, but there is some Copic Spica at You "clear" on Tilda's flowers and the lace on her dress hem and hair.

The lovely papers are Websters minis (I think Lullaby Lane). The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. There are also some buttons for fun.

I would love to enter this card in these challenges:


The Magnolia Down Under Challenge "Anything but Square" challenge runs until 8am Saturday (Melbourne, Australian time) so please drop by and check out the fabulous DT inspiration and try your luck!

Thanks for visiting me today :)
Hugs
Kylie
