Easter already?

Hi everyone!

This is my last week as GDT at I Love Promarkers. It has been a great experience for me and I would like to thank the DT ladies for receiving me in the team:). This week's challenge is heat or dry embossing somewhere on your card. Easy peasy! That's what I thought before assembling the card. Only afterwards have I noticed my embossed panels are somehow hidden;)) But they exist - you can take my word for it:)). I just forgot about the size of the stamped image:))
Now, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Christina from Christina's Card Connection for the 50 $ voucher she offered me to spend at the Magnolia-licious store about two weeks ago when she randomly chose a couple of people who left comments on her blog.  I was really surprised as I didn't know there was a prize for that:)) (I'd say you should go and pay some visits to her, who knows?:)). She makes such beautiful cards!!!
I would also like to thank Diana Crick, the owner of Magnolia-licious store for adding Romania to shipping destinations and for the fast delivery. I was extremely surprised to get my products in under 2 weeks. My order was small and I was reluctant to place an order with the new collection believing I won't get them in less than a month. Instead, I ordered them from my European supplier and you know what? I have got them the very same day.  I have also received several beautiful charms from Diana as a gift. Thank you so much, ladies!
Well, now back to my card. I have used Tilda as shepherd from the last year  Hoppy Easter collection. My stamp came all the way from America together with the dragonflies dies and Tilda lace die. Well, I put them all together here on my Easter card added quite a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some embellies here and there. I hope you like it!

Stamp: Magnolia- Tilda as Shepherd
Coloring medium: Promarkers
DP: Barely Mine Designs - Spring Flight
Dies: Marianne Design- forest branch, Magnolia Doohilkeys- Dragonflies and Tilda lace border, nestabilities label 8,

Penni said...

Wow this is a beautiful card. Can I ask which Promarker Colours you use to colour Tilda's skin.


Iulia said...

I sent you an e-mail Penny, but I thought I should write here too. I use lots of colors and blend them together; Sandstone, Buttercup, Vanilla, Almond, Salmon and Blush. It took me quite a while to blend them properly;)

Hi Iulia!
What a gorgeous card. I love the colors you have chosen. I have just colored this Tilda as Shepherd myself. One of my favorites. Your coloring is beautiful. I love the sky behind her and the mixture of flowers look so lovely. Love the little butterfly charm and the bigger one up the top. Love the butterfly paper too. Super duper.
