Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge - Spring Is In The Air

EDITED TO ADD: Placed in the Top 3 at 2 Sisters THANKS!!!!!
It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge
Now this is a fabulous challenge and just come at the right time as we want to see your gorgeous SPRING creations with a Maggie!
Now I know many of you, on both sides of the pond, are still seeing snow outside the window but it is Spring and I promise to share a little of my Texas sunshine with you if you stop and stay for a while :)
My blog is a little light on cards this week as I'm in the middle of a big Spring Cleaning session so the crafting had to take a step back this week.
Diana has so many fabulous images in THE STORE including the latest EASTER COLLECTION that are perfect for this challenge
You can go to town adding flowers and using Pastel Spring tones or even a little brighter if you choose.

Paper and Sentiment - Garden Party by Making Memories
Doily - Wilton
Pearls - The Paper Studio and Bridal
Die Cut - Beaded Ovals by Spellbinders
Butterfly Die - My Favorite Things
Pom Pom Trim - Melissa Frances

I used my absolute favorite Spring line of papers, Garden Party by Making Memories, and it is so so sad that is was discontinued a few years ago. I save every little scrap and only use it on very special projects so Tilda is honored that she was chosen for this card ;)
I added my favorite embellishment, Pearls, oh my you should see how many of these I have in my stash, whoops!, and then added glitter to give Tilda a little touch of glam. I really hope you enjoyed this, be sure to drop by the Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge to see all the other wonderful cards and remember there are posts there on Mondays (Magnolia Minis) and Wednesday (Wee Stamps) so there is always plenty to see :)
