Stylin' Magnolia

You all remember me winning that way cool blog candy off Midnight Madness, I picked out some new Magnolias and they arrived this week. This is one of them. I love long hair on little girls, so just about all the ones I grabbed have long hair. I wasn't able, or should say didn't have the mojo yesterday to do Cute Card Thursday, which was a thank you card for a teacher. I thought this Tilda would look so perfect to be dressed in plaid-and she did! I grabbed two packs of Basic Grey today, June Bug, and Lemonade-thanks, Kim! And stay tuned, I grabbed another Lemonade pack for a blog candy I'm getting ready to post soon.
I used June Bug on this card, and SU Ruby Red and Old Olive cardstock. I followed the sketch on Just Magnolia, and I think I beat Debbie today, but gotta post quickly to make sure! I also tried another challenge I saw on Pile It On, called Use It. They had a challenge to use two punches-those are my SU word punches, texture-flowers, ribbons, and buttons, favorite paper company-lately, I'm in love with Basic Grey, and a bonus to use a pearl, which I topped her hat with one! My sentiment is from TAC, and I colored her with copics.
