Magnolia Monday #12 - It's a Sunny Tilda with Sunflowers!

It's another new week and that means another Magnolia Monday!
This week I have brought out an old Tilda stamp and that is Tilda with Sunflowers and I think she looks wonderful in this color combo.
I'd love you to link up below with your Magnolia Monday creation, remember the theme is always Anything Goes as long as it is Magnolia on a Monday!

Sentiment - Michaels $1 Spot
Buttons - Stash
Lace Fabric - Joanns

I used one of my new favorite techniques on this card and that is using a piece of lace fabric over the whole of the designer paper background. I think it adds a soft, subtle look and turns a good card into a wow one!
I really hope you've liked this one and will come over and share your creation too!
