Tilda in Spring Rain

Hello, friends! It's Thursday already! Yeah! I have a card with a Magnolia mini to share with you today! Right now, we would love a little spring rain! We had 6" of snow yesterday! My poor daffodils! Anyway, this is #3014 TILDA IN SPRING RAIN from the Magnolia-licious store. I love her in full size and she is quick to color up and put on a card in the mini size! I used the Mojo Sketch for this week to design my card-sketches are so helpful when you have your image and papers, aren't they? Here's the link for the SKETCH
I'm sure you're not surprised to hear she's colored with copics! I used the usual skin colors. Lately I've been starting my hair with Y23 and then using my Es (31, 33,99, 25 and29) to finish.
I'm always looking for green combinations to match my papers and this might be an unusual one:
G20, YG03 and YG93, but it worked! Of course it's BG10 and BG72 for the 'rain' and puddle. The tan that I added around the oval is Distress Ink in Antique Linen.
The large plaid is an older paper from Piggy Tales called the Frog Prince, but the other two are from new Prima 6x6 pads called Botanical and Madeline.
Thank you so much for all the nice comments on my Screen Door card! I hear your requests and talked to Sharon the other day. She began by hand cutting her doors after getting inspiration from a crafting magazine. Since she wanted to teach it for a class, she had a company make her a die to cut the doors. AND she is willing to mail out her little door kits to customers! She would love to have you call her at the store for payment and mailing information (she does not have online ordering, but there is a Buffalo Stamps site)
Please contact her at 716-834-3540 and she will be happy to help you!

One commenter also asked about the dp inside-it's also My Mind's Eye and is in the 6" pack called Hattie (front papers from same pack)

Okay, that's it! Sorry for the long post! Have a great day!
Cheryl
