Tilda, Edwin and... Pippin

Hi everyone!
I have two cards to share with you today! Hope you won't get bored with so many pictures...hehe.
I have really missed my Magnolias lately and thought I should make a card using both Tilda and Edwin for the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge which ends tomorrow.  Sharon said we shoul use both Tilda and Edwin on our cards so I did:) but added one more Tilda just for the symmetry:). I chose 3 stamps from the Magnolia 2011 Butterfly Dream Collection- oh, how I love these and made a sort of  accordion card or something because I really felt like using my Scor-pal these days:) Hope you like it!

Coloring medium: Promarkers
DP: Echo Park- A walk in the Park
Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts roses, ribbon,lace, charm and pins from The Ribbon Girl, stickles,
Dies: nestabilities label 8 (I guess) and Parisian accents, Magnolia Doohikey's dragonflies and lovely fence
Sentiments: Lili of the Valley

Challenges for my Magnolia card:
Magnolia-licious Highlites- Tilda and Edwin
Magnolia Stamp Lovers  - Flowers
Craft Us Crazy -Mother's Day and/or flowers.
Do You Stack Up? - Challenge #17: Make it pop (3-D effect).
Moving Along With The Times – Challenge #96: Anything goes.

My second card is a birthday card I made for the Digital Delights where I was invited as a guest designer this week and I thought I should post it too. There are some very cute stamps in their  Digital Delights shop, eventually I chose this adorable Birthday Pippin here and a perfect sentiment to go with to put this card together. I think it looks cute:)
Stamp: Digital Delights: Birthday Pippin
Coloring Medium: Promarkers, Derwent pencils
DP: MME- Fine and Dandy- Tickled Pink
