Pretty In Pink Card

As a little girl, I've always shied away from pink, scared to fit into a cliche of what colors girls should like or wear. Now, I love all colors, including pink! My newest creation features an all pink card with a hanging Tilda for the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog. I have recently signed on as a new Bank of America employee, and have made this card in dedication to the recruiter that has been extremely helpful. Usually I like to have some sort of sketch to guide my creative process, but this time, I decided to create my own design. This is also my very first Easel card, and I am really happy with the results.

Here is my creation:
Here is a close-up of Tilda:
Here is a view of the front:
Here is a view of the inside:

For this project, I used a Magnolia stamp, which can be found here, at the best Magnolia store in the states. I used Copic markers to color Tilda in. Clear and pink Dew Drops, Prima flowers, and Gold Stickles for decoration. The pink and clear bling is by Kaiserkrafts. The ribbon is from a shop I found during my travels to Hong Kong many years ago... guess I was destined to be a crafter! The heart ribbon was from a dollar store in Victoria, B.C. The sentiments and tags are by Stampin' Up (Curvy Verses, Circle of Friendship, and Cute & Curly). The hot pink DP is by Martha Stewart Ombre collection and the pink DP with white flowers is from S.E.I. Lovebirds collection. Well that covers it all I think... thanks so much for coming by!

You don't need someone elses sketch you did a fabulous job putting it all together yourself. It was so creative of you to hang Tilda from the ribbon. What a wonderful card!
