Midweek Magnolias - April Showers


Hello, Friends and Happy Wednesday! The Midweek Magnolias has a new challenge up for you and it is
 
April Showers
 
Check out the DT creations, they are all so lovely.
 
 
I’m keeping this post short as it’s been a long day for me and I am writing my post late. My card features the darling “Drip Drop Tilda.” I just couldn’t resist since she has April showers written all over her. She is colored in Copics and I added some Glossy Accents to her boots and a scattering of Viva D├ęcor Gloss Gel drops for the rain. They are hard to see in the photo but look great in real life.
 
 
I used some cute papers from Jillibean Soup, really love these and they fit my theme perfectly. I did some machine stitching, distressing and used lots of die cuts for this little darling.
 
 
The inside is very simple with blank space for a personal message or sentiment.
 
Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia, MSE
Cardstock: Bazzill, American Crafts
DPs: Jillibean Soup, Southern Chicken Dumpling
Dies: Magnolia, Silhouette Cameo, Marianne Designs, Tim Holtz
Pearls: Recollections
Ribbon: WOC
Flowers: Prima, WOC
Charm: BoBunny
Button: Crate Paper
Other: Tim Holtz/Sizzix Floral Embossing Folder; Viva Decor Gloss Gel Pen; Ranger Glossy Accents and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:
 
MDUC – Tic-Tac-Toe (Metal, Embossing, Finished inside)
Totally Tilda – Bingo Grid (Die cuts, Flowers, Machine stitching)
Southern Girls – Make like a Zebra/Stripes

I am catching up with you Cathy Lee! Both of your recent cards are so gorgeous. I love the color combo of the teal and gold and especially how you colored her socks and dress, gorgeous!!
The very springy April showers couldn't be more perfect with Drip Drop Tilda, the charm, papers and those pretty butterflies dancing along the edge of the card, just love this one too.
