Finally a card for multiple challenges

It seems like ages since I made a card .... because it has, working extra hours, nearing the end of the school year (many functions), running kids to this and that.  Well summer has officially started, normally I am slower in the summer than the rest of the year but as the kids get older that changes. 

Well I broke down and bought a few Magnolia Stamps, this being the first one I have used to make a card.  I am entering this card in Just Magnolia 55 - One for the Girls; A Spoon Full of Sugar 104 - cute and girly; Mojo Monday 139 - sketch; Tuesday Morning Sketches - favorite color combo and glitter.  I don't know that this is a favorite color combo but it is one I used to fulfill an old color challenge that I never got around to on time at Color Dare 65 to use Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze.  I thought what a wild and bright challenge so colored my image and then never got around to making a card.  I hadn't thought of ever using such a strong, bright color on Tilda's hair as I had never seen it before, but it worked for this challenge and hopefully we will see more of her colored with orange hair.

Lori, you would be proud of me other than the Whisper White paper I used to stamp Tilda, I only used one other piece of cardstock the rest is all patterned paper.  Quite the stretch for me.

Stamps:  Sitting Summer Tilda - Magnolia
Ink:  Tsukineko Graphite Black
Paper:  Apricot Appeal, Whisper White and a lot of patterned paper
Accessories:  ribbon, top note die cut, button, copics, blending stump, baby oil, coloring pencils, iridescent ice EP, white gel pen

Such a cute image. Gonna have to borrow that one! Her hair looks fine that color! Good luck with the challenges.

I am proud of, I love how you placed her sitting on the panel, and she looks great with orange hair, may have to try a red/orange headed Tilda. Watch out though, you're going to fall in love with her!
