Standing Fall Tilda and Hive Creative Challenge

I hope you're all having a great start of the week so far! Today was a real Monday for me; wow did it pass by slowly.  Hope yours was better than mine :)

Today I'm sharing with you one of the first Magnolia Tilda stamps I ever bought called Standing Fall Tilda from the Halloween and Autumn Collection, which is available at 7 Kids HERE.  There are so many challenges right now with a Fall theme so I couldn't resist inking up this sweet Tilda image :)  I went for a more simple look with this card (at least simple for me), gave it a little texture with the Swiss Dots Embossing folder and added a little dazzle with some gemstones.  Of course, my image is colored with distress reinkers using my NEW Medium Koi Water Brush from Sakura.  I like this brush better than the previous one I had - I just felt like I had more control over my coloring.

Well, thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my card!

What a super card Ann. I love all the co-ordinating colours you have used on your background papers and image. I love the big bow and you have managed to colour co-ordinate it with her jumper.
Thank you for joining us at Kaboodledoodles and we hope to see you for further challenges at Kaboodle.
