It's Magnolia Monday #2! - A Little Pink Tilda

EDITED TO ADD - Won Challenge #18 at Cheerful Stamp Pad. Thanks so much!!!

Placed in the Top 3 at Creative Cowgirls. Thanks so much!!!!

Hi Everyone!
It's Monday so that means a new Maggie card for my Magnolia Monday's!
I'd love to see your cards too and if you have a card featuring any Magnolia stamp posted on your blog today, Monday May 23rd, please add it to the link gadget below and I'll come and leave you some love! If you do link up I'd love to to mention this post in your post and come and leave some love for some others that link up.
The Inlinkz will stay open until Tuesday at midnight for cards posted on Monday.
And now on to my card and the list of challenges it fits in. Now if you know me I do this with every card BUT I think this week I need an intervention as my list is both amazing and annoyingly long! I apologize to all you wonderful DT commentors looking for your link, I can assure you that if I linked on your challenge blog (over 50 of them!) then the relevant link back is in there! LOL

It is so hard to get a good photograph of an easel card but I've taken a few shots so I hope you get a good view.

I inked all the edges of the mats and papers to go along with the Shabby Chic style but not too "grungy" as the image is so sweet and gentle.

I added another gorgeous Bronte Bloom to the message mat, I adore these flowers!

I've had this Tilda since she was released but, shame on me, I'd never made a card with her until now!

More gorgeous flowers, a die cut border and an embossed mat.
I had a lot of fun with this card and hope you love it too.
Be sure to add your Monday Maggie to the Inlinkz and I'll come along and she your wonderful creation!
