Fairy Tales

Hi all! I've finished my first card for the Magnolia-licious monthly challenge ! The challenge for you is hosted by the wonderful Sharon Claudle, who was kind enough to find a tutorial that i made about 1 1/2 years back for my blog. Thanks, Sharon, that was so kind of you!

When you visit Magnolia-licious, be sure and join the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group to get special discounts and goodies. Diana is offering a whopping 10% off the Magnolia stamps for the month of January with a special code you get by joining the Yahoo group!! How cool is that??!!
Since i had made in the past a "Frame Card" where the scene is in the back panel stamped and Tilda/Edwin is adhered to the frame in the front i wanted to make it a bit different this time. I have stamped all my images onto one paper (the trees are masked) and just added the picture in my frame. It does look nice and it gives you more options with adding several more elements.
Check out my first card sample. I used a High Hopes flower wheel barrow and have added Tilda carrying a flower basket to the lower right corner. I don't know if i was able to show on the picture the depth of the card. Oh and since this card can not be mailed in a regular paper envelope i did not care that my heart embellishment went way out side the usual 6x6 size, the outline part of the plastic heart is cute, it decorates my project and still allows to see a lot of colored image. Unfortunately those Heidi Swapp ghost shapes are getting pretty rare.
Stamps: "Cupid Tilda" with arrow and the trees can be found in the Valentines Section over on Magnolia-lious
Sentiment: Amuse Artstamps
Papers: Bo Bunny, Stampin up (textured Pretty in Pink)
Embellishments: Offray pink Satin ribbon, MS pearl stickers, Nestabilites, Kaiser Craft pearls,
