Here's my Heart Tilda and a winner!

Hello! Thanks for all the nice comments yesterday! Today's card is a Magnolia-licious image from the You Are So Special collection! It has such awesome stamps! This one is #3008 TILDA WITH HEART. I'm a little stuck on pink lately, so pink it was! The cutting, background and card style were all inspired by the Featured Stamper on SCS. I started with a white card base and cut the edge with my Magnolia Doo hickey cutting die.

I used some paper from a K & Co pad I picked up at Michaels and matched it to some Bo Bunny double dot paper. Since I was using a simple layout I decided some stitching was in order. I stitched around the inside panel as well. The pink edge shows when the card is closed. Look, I even stitched the oval!

It's fun sometimes to cut and leave a tiny bit of white around the edge.
Besides the Splitcoast Stamper challenge my card fits some other challenges out there this week.

Here they are:
Just Magnolia week 92 ribbon
AND, NOW, FINALLY~ a WINNER! Out of 54 entries, Random.org chose number SIX!!
That would be CRICKET! Cricket, please contact me at the following email address with your snail mail address and THANKS!! Cricket has won a card and a Magnolia-licious stamp because she left a comment on this post-Token of Love
If I don't hear from Cricket by Friday at noon, I'll be choosing someone else.
I very much appreciate that you stopped by today! Thank you so much and have a GREAT day!
