A little romance

Wow, it's been AGES since I've posted a Magnolia card! I hardly ever get to use these cuties, but it doesn't stop me from buying them.  7 Kids has THE BEST deals on Magnolia stamps. Period.  Check out their great selection here!

Anywho, I'm sharing a card today made with Magnolia's Romantic Tilda, which you can get for pre-order at 7 Kids here.  I think this is one of my favorite Magnolia stamps - there's just something about her holding her little umbrella (or is it called a parasol?) that's just so sweet! I hung the heart charm (you can get some charms here) from a heart brad (you can find some brads here) and attached a black lace ribbon to give it a little touch of romance.  The ticket sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps French Ticket Sentiments digital set.  Yep, we've got some digital versions of the rubber Ticket Sentiments!

Hope you like the card!
