Tilda the Diving Olympian

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Design Team at Midweek Magnolias has a new challenge for you this week and our theme is in celebration of the Olympic Games. We want to to see your card or project with sports or your country flag colors or both. So head over to Midweek Magnolias for some awesome inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. You’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden. This week we are voting for 3 winners, gold, silver and bronze to follow the Olympic theme. Our awesome team leader, Anne, created some lovely badges for each winner as well so pop over and check them out.

My card features the adorable “Diving Tilda” from the “You are a Winner” collection available at the Magnolia-licious Online Store.
This little darling is so cute and fun to make cards with. I colored Tilda in Copics, cut her out and mounted her on a Spellbinders Beaded Ovals die cut.
My cardstock is from Bazzill and The Paper Company. The festive red, white and blue DPs are from We R Memory Keepers. I added pearls around Tilda’s frame and a cute pennant for my USA title. My flowers are from WOC and satin ribbon bow is from Michaels.
The inside of my card has similar elements from the front with “You are a Winner” sentiment.
These are the Copics I used to color Tilda.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill; The Paper Company
DPs – We R Memory Keepers
Flowers – WOC
Dies/Punches – Spellbinders; Whimsy Stamps; Magnolia
Pearls – Recollections
Ribbon – Michaels

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:


I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting…

Hugz,
