Sweet Tilda / Magnolia Down Under #58

UPDATE: I am so thrilled. I won the Magnolia Down Under Challenge with this card! Thanks to the designers at Magnolia Down Under for this honor!

The Magnolia Down Under Challenge this week was to create an easel card. I started coloring, decided to add the words, started distressing the paper, and this is what I ended up with...

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund: 

I colored Tilda with distress inks, masked the image and stamped over it with my Script Background Stamp (SU!).

I used Urban paper (K&Co). I stamped "You are a Blessing to me" (Stampabilities) and Flourishes v.2 (Autumn Leaves) for the base of my easel, and finished off my embellishments with flat back pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today. I so appreciate your wonderful comments. You are such a blessing to me!
