Happy Spring!!

Yesterday, I finished my second Tilda card. I wanted to do something for Spring, so I chose an image out of the new Hoppy Easter Collection and paired it with the Magnolia Swing. I used the Tilda with Flower in her Hair image. This image is just great for Easter and spring.

All of the colored card stock, designer paper, ribbon, tag punches, and corduroy buttons are from Stampin' Up. The flowers are Prima. The glass garland is from Magnolia. Although, the pictures does not reflect this, the color of the glass garland is light pink.

Instead of using my flowers as an embellishment in one of the corners, I wanted to use them as blooms on the tree branch. This reminded me of spring. I use dimensionals to pop the Tilda image and the tag out on the card. Below is my image.

The Colors that I used to color this image are as follows:

Hair: Y11, Y21, E97, and E99
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20
Dress: RV23, RV21, RV000, G07, YG06, YG03
Eggs: G07, YG06, YG03, V17, V12, V15, BG05, BG01, BG000, B14, B12, B00, Y21, Y11
Shoes: E40, E42 and Black .30 Multiliner SP
Wood Tree Limb and Swing Seat: E59, E25, E99, E33, E53
Leaves: G07, YG06, YG03
Rope: E53, E51, E50

Below is a closer picture of the coloring

I hope that you like her. I just loved the spring feeling that she brings. I am so ready for Spring and nicer weather!! I welcome any comments and suggestions that you may have. Happy Spring to everyone!!!
