Amazing Acetate blog Hop!

Good morning! Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Design Team Project of the Month Blog Hop! I don't remember whose idea it was to use acetate in our card/project but it was a GREAT idea! Maybe it was Becca's idea, cuz that's where we started the hop-at Amazing Paper Grace. If you then came from our GDT member, Angie you are right on track! I was trying to take daylight photos and keep the real shades of color so I'll apologize right now for the poor photos! This Tilda with Bike is on reorder
at the store. As Diana mentioned she is one of the smaller ones from last year. Her head could almost be covered by a quarter. For me this means she fits well on a standare A2 sizd card!

I love, love, love how an acetate card looks so that's what I started with! It was so fun I decided to make a box to go with it and use an acetate window!
I used new Bo Bunny sparkly paper with SUs orchid opulance. It's not my favorite color but is the perfect match for Bo Bunny's Jazmyne paper! The box is from Lauren Meder's new store My Time Made Easy and is called Shutterfly. I cut the flowers from my Bo Bunny dp.

I'll be honest, I had started this Tilda a while back and had her hair and skin colored already! I decided to stamp another and paper piece her apron with Papertrey Ink's Easter paper. I used Y21 and YR24 for the flowers and basket and V0000, Voo, V01, V09 and V15 for the purples. The bike tires are Cool Greys and I'm not sure about the greens.
