Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 16

Hi, I'm back again with another MDUC entry - I'm sorry but I missed getting my card uploaded on Sunday as I've been busy making special family Birthday cards recently and was out all weekend.

For this week's challenge our team had to make a card using one of a few colour selections - I chose the Pink, Brown and Cream combination for my Tilda card.

I love this image of Tilda with the Tulips (my favourite flowers) and thought it would be perfect to use with these colours.
I used Chocolate Chip for the base card and Pink Pirouette for the embossed panel and for mounting the patterned paper.
The paper is from a retired Stampin' Up! Designer Series set called Au Chocolat which was in one of the Mini catalogues a long while ago. (I knew I should have bought more at the time - it's such beautiful paper !)
I embossed the pink panel with my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder and added some Cocoa and Pink foam flowers which I found in my collection. The colours matched the cardstock perfectly.
I stamped the greeting on white card and punched it out with an oval punch, mounting it on a larger oval in Chocolate Chip cardstock.
As always, Tilda was coloured using watercolour pencils and an aqua brush. I added some glitter to the tulips and the foam flowers for a bit of bling !
Some lovely pink gems were added to finish off the card.

SU Supplies -
Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette.
Stamps - Short and Sweet (for the greeting)
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Designer Series Papers - Au Chocolat (2007-2008)
Punches - Small and Large Ovals
