Magnolia Monday #13 - Hugs To You!

Happy Monday everyone!
It's time for another Magnolia Monday with a super sweet Tilda card!
Before we get to the card I have to say I found a new site yesterday and fell in love! For a long while I've resisted the lure of digital papers but slowly and surely they are coming to get me. I was blog browsing yesterday and found a post from a very talented card maker, Tab, and she used some fabulous digital papers from Raspberry Road and of course I clicked and spent the next hour oohing and aahing over the fabulous designs! Of course there was no way that some didn't just jump into my basket! With minutes of buying I had already decided which sketch to use on the card and so I could print just enough of each paper for the project, how fabulous is that? I'm not affiliated with the store at all and there are so many digital stores to choose from I'm just tempting you to step into the digital paper world if you aren't there already! LOL
Now on to the card, I'd love you to link up your card below as it is of course Magnolia Monday and the theme is always "Anything Goes" with a Magnolia!

I wasn't sure if I could do the "Paper Only" challenge as I love to add the embellishments but with all the tools I have at my disposal I found it freeing to use just a little paper!
I absolutely love how this turned out, it just screams "Summer!" and makes me smile.
I hope you like it too and will come along and share with me!
