Love Letters!

Hello! I guess it's Magnolia Monday! However, I posted this card yesterday on Splitcoast Stampers for the Featured Stamper challenge. I think it could be a Valentine, but wouldn't have to be!

I got to go to Buffalo for breakfast and shopping with my friend Lisa Kind, yesterday! Of course we went to our LSS, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff! I used some new paper that I got for my card. It's made by My Mind's Eye, So Sophie collection. It is a terrific red that has an orange tone to it! I didn't even try to match it with a red card stock! I went for Soft Suede (SU) and Linen (PTI) with a little chocolate brown for good measure! The panel behind Tilda is from the reverse side of the flowered paper.

Tilda is colored with my copics and then a second piece with ther arms, envelopes and skirt was added to the top with dimensional glue. That's why there's a shadow over her socks!

Copics used:
Eooo, Eoo, R30 and R11 skin
E53, E31, E35 and E25 hair
E43 and R20 with blender for envelopes
YR02, YR05, YR02, YR05, YR08 and R17 for dress.
Even though Diana is busy with CHA stuff, Jacque still has the Sunday Sensations all ready for another giveaway of 25.00!! Just add your name to Jacque's list before midnight Tues. It could be your lucky week!
There's also a new Magnolia-licious monthly challenge and a Copic Creations challenge ready to go! Details on Feb. 1st!
Thanks so very much for visiting! Wishing you an excellent day!!

What a rich looking card. For some reason, it just reminds me of Valentine's chocolates! I don't know why, but it just does! I love the reds and browns. Your stamp was a perfect choice! I just love it!
