A Magnolia-licious Challenge!

Good morning! It's back to work for me today! But not before posting this card I made for Diana's Magnolia-licious challenge!
Claudia designed the sketch for the challenge. She is head of the Magnolia-licious design team and is SOOO deserving!
My card recipe:
The base is Papertrey white, then a layer of Real Red. The dp is Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye. Behind Tilda is a white sparky paper by Doodlebug. Her medallion is real red sponged in Cranberry Crisp. This is my FIRST corner punch medallion (if you don't count the 3 practice ones in the garbage!!) It was fun to make. I used Becca's video tutorial which in linked to the TLC on SCS. Thanks, Becca! I used white gel pen dots around the edge.
I made one of Anna Wight's crystal snowflakes and used the Martha Stewart branch punch behind it. The beautiful dotted ribbon is Papertrey inks' pure poppy. There is a pearl in the center of the snowflake, colored with green copic marker.
Tilda is colored in with copic markers and the colors follow:
Face E00,E02 and R20 for cheeks
Reds R17,R29 and R59
Greens YG23, Yg17 and G05
Her hair E33, E35, E08 and E37
Be sure to check for creations from Claudia, Suzanne and Suzy (Links on my blog list). Diana herself may have one, too!
