Sweetie Tilda on Vintage Couch card for Magnolia-licious' Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. I didn't have much time creating last week due to my dad's illness. However, he is getting better, so I had a chance to finished this Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge card on the weekend. Our sweet DT member, Paola picked the following photo for this time's inspiration challenge. Remember, you could be a lucky random pick winner of $25.00 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious. All you have to do is to participate the challenge by creating a project using the inspiration photo below. You can click on the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge link above and find out more info.



My card today used Sweetie Tilda from Magnolia-Licious. I sit her on this Vintage Couch. From the inspiration picture, that pair of slippers caught my attention too, so I added a pair of 'white slippers' that I found from a package of Jolee's embellishment. However, the slippers has a title "bride" on it, so what I did was, I colored it pink with a Copic marker, then use the black color to overwrite it with the initial "T" for Tilda. I am also using my card for other challenges, please scroll to the bottom of this post for information.

Here is my finished card from the inspiration photo.
