A Card for Several Magnolia Challenges

Good Morning Everyone, well the skys are cloudy and its a bit chilly today lets hope the sun comes out presently and warms the place up or its out with the long johns again if not. Anyway todays card has been created for several Magnolia Challenges Totally Tildas "Sweet Treats" Magnolia Down Unders "Heavy Metal" and Just Magnolias "Anything Goes" and Ive used this sweet (pun) Tilda with her lollipop, Ive stamped her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, after which I cut her out with my circle Nestabilitie Die. Now the mount shes in is the new Nestabilitie's Heart Circle and by gum it was a pain to get out of the die, it kept tearing at one or other of the sides, so Ive cheated and mount two up together but have cut the torn edges away, so be prepared for a fight with it to get out of the die if you decide you like it enough to buy it.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue pearlescent card with one of two papers from the Dovecoat "Tea House" papers, the first paper is an all over white background with teapots and cups all over it in a strip pattern, the second paper is a pink flower (spots) paper and Ive used my heart border punch on the two edges of this one. I then ran a piece of the same blue card through my cuttlebug with a cupcake embossing folder and created a strip to stick down the left hand side of the card.
The sentiment is one of the same Magnolia Set of stamps thats been mounted on one of the new tag dies from Nestabilitie, Ive mounted it on the card and attached it with two metal brads down in the left hand corner. The mounted image was then finished of firstly with some spotted ribbon threaded through the heart holes of the mount and a bow was created and stuck on the edge. The image was positioned in the middle of my card. To finish of Ive stuck two cupcake buttons down the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Beautiful card Shirley! Love the ribbon & diecut treatment. A tip for you--for those dies that just won't let go. Place a piece of wax paper between your die and the cardstock you are cutting. Makes it so much easier to get out of the die. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Card Ideas. Please join us again next week!
