Swinging Tilda

I would like to show you a card i made 2 days ago. I really love how this card turned out. Probably because i really love this cute little Tilda. She look so sweet. She is from the brand new Summer 2008 line. You can view this line already on my friends Beas shop website Megahobby. Thats were i buy my Magnolias, if i do not order directly in Sweden. I wanted to create a horizontal card and my focal point image should be horizontal too. Thats why she is not sitting on her swing. I used the little branch from my new Artfully Asian set i bought last month to add some foliage. Well - i admit... i spent like 25 dollars on that set, simply because i wanted to use it with my Magnolias :-) crazy i know.
The DP has some glaze and glitter so i added some glitter on each of the yellow scallop and on Tildas wings.

This is how the inside of my card looks like. The layers are sewed and each leav is colored with 2 diffent shades of greens on top of that i added a tiny bit of green Stickles to the leave were the most shadow would be naturally.
Stamps: Magnolia new Summer 2008 Collection Gungande Tilda / Schaukelnde Tilda
Other: Stampin up In my thoughts and Artfully Asian
Embellishments: wide grosgrain ribbon, Stickles in Diamond and green, Heidi Swapp green rhinestone stickers
Tools: sewing machine, piecing tool, Nestabilities in large
Paper: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, White, Designer Paper do not know anymore cause this piece was a piece of scrap left over from my "frame card tutorial"
Ink/Coloring: Ranger Adriondak Ink, Copics, Elegant Eggplant (retiered)

Here are some pictures of the fabulous card i had yesterday in my mail box:
