Sweet Gingham Magnolia

 Isn't she sweet?  A sweet Tilda will always melt my heart.  I just love these darling little girls.  These images are so fun to color too.  By the time you read this, it has already winged it's way to a dear friend.  I made this for a Dirty Dozen challenge and I was inspired by the gingham fabric in an inspirational picture.

 I have really taken a shine to making my own flowers.  So here I have used the Marianne Rolled Scalloped Rose die and mixed it with some Prima roses that I had in my stash.
 I used the Moroccan Accents from Spellbinders for my die cuts and I accent the Martha Stewart Punch Around the page with lots of pearls.
Thanks for stopping by today.  It was a pleasure to have you come by and visit with me for a spell.  I will see you again soon.  Have a wonderful day.

This card is dripping with sweetness, Carol. Winging its way to someone....hmmmmmmm..could it be?! I am in so much suspense. What patience? This comment would make no sense to anyone but you and me. LOL
Anyway, your card is precious and filled with yummy embellies.
Hope you're having a good 4th of July. HOT, HOT, HOT and DRY..Yikes!!
