Sweet Tilda with Rose

Tilda with Rose
Magnolia's Tilda images are fantastic to color as there is a lot you can do with the image, but in my opinion, does not always have to reach the 'overloaded' look.

I kept the coloring simple, and die cut it with the Spellbinders Floral Oval die. The paper with roses on was just perfect for this image and because it was busy I did not add any more flowers or ribbon. Perhaps I should have, but I felt Less was More with this card.

I punched out a strip of dark contrasting card with a MS border punch and used my favorite tag with sentiment, which fitted between the borders beautifully. I finished the card off with these lovely metal corners from Paola, the 'Magnolia Queen' in South Africa. 

I hope I get a gold star from her for this effort, although she will ask - '.... where are the flowers, ribbon, bling and Stickles??' It may well lift this card from mediocre to drop dead gorgeous........??

Thanks for the visit!
