March Mingle Cards

After I joined the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group, I read through the list of activities offered on an ongoing basis. I had spent several hours admiring all the Tilda cards on members' blogs and was especially drawn to Roseanne Knowles' cards as she had posted several the first couple weeks I was a member.

The monthly Mingle seemed like a good activity to start with - one card per month to one person. So I signed up. My first Mingle card was to go to Roseanne Knowles. Her cards had already intimidated me. Her layouts and flower arrangements are gorgeous. Check out her blog here

Here is the card I sent her.
This was my first attempt at making a flower arrangement on a card.
The flowers are Prima and the leaves are MS Branch punch. I think it did turn out quite nicely. She was very gracious and said she liked it and that my coloring was good.

Easter Tilda and her little chicks were colored with my Copics, of course!

Colors used:
Face - E000, 00, 01, 11, R20
Hair - E30, 31, 33
Chicks - Y13, 15, YR65
Dress, scarf - YG05,03,07,09, Y02
Shoes - E000, 42

My Mingle card was from Georgina Lupton.
She used so many techniques on this card -
layering, Cuttlebug design behind the main image (you can just see the top above the image), sponging, die cutting, brads, ribbon, tag, as well as stamping and coloring Tilda. There is also glitter on her wing by the bottle neck.
The Cuttlebug design shows on the inside of the card. The lower inside is lined with designer paper and a layered message label.
It is just a gorgeous card and I love it!
Thank you, Georgina.
Many thanks to you for taking time to stop by and look at my cards!
