Pink with Ribbons and Pearls at Midweek Magnolias

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team is back with a new challenge for you and this week we want to see those lovely creations of “Pink with Ribbons and Pearls.”
Hop over to Midweek Magnolias for inspiration from the DT’s gorgeous creations and leave some love on their blogs. When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous Mystery Prize from Magnolia Sweden.
I chose to make my card with the new adorable “Pink Ribbon Tilda” from the NEW 2013 Love Collection. She is colored with Copics and I gave her a pink ribbon. Very fitting for the challenge, right? She is available at the Magnolia-licious store. You can get her and receive 2% store credit with every order. Also, check out the colored images for inspiration at Magnolia-licious.
I stamped a little flourish from SEI around Tilda's frame with SU Crumbcake. My image and designer paper panels are distressed using my Tim Holtz distressing tool and SU Crumbcake ink. Then I machine stitched each one for added texture.
I tied some pretty pink ribbon in a bow with a pearl heart button on the knot. Then I added ribbon rose trim with pearl centers at the bottom of my card. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps atop a flourish heart that I cut with my Cameo. A few flowers with a Heart Swirl Doohickey die finished off the card.
The inside of my card has similar elements and distressing techniques from the front.
Here’s a close-up of my colored Tilda.
Stamps: Pink Ribbon Tilda, Magnolia; 4U Postage Sentiment, Whimsy Stamps
Ink: Crumbcake, Stampin’ Up; Tuxedo Black, Memento
Cardstock: Smooth Ivory, The Paper Company
Dies: Magnolia; Spellbeinders; Cameo
Ribbon Rose Trim: JoAnn’s
Pearls: Martha Stewart; JoAnn’s
Ribbon: The Ribbon Girl
Flowers: Prima; Kort & Godt
I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Totally Tilda - Tilda in Trowsers
MDUC - Flowers
I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting…

Oh I love the colors on Tilda, the pink is so rich! Your paper is gorgeous and the inside is just as pretty as front of your card. I love the big pink flower with the die cut and then the ribbon flowers across the bottom. The big pink bow is a beautiful touch to go with Tilda.
