A Brave Little Tilda !

Hello peeps,
Ooooo just lookie here, I have a non DT card at last, yaaaaayyyy lol. Hubby has been away on a residents holiday so I've had less housework to do as he's a messy devil, which means I've had more time to play.

I will admit I am not overly keen on many of the new Magnolia collection Winner Takes It All (are you thinking Abba too? lol)  which is so unlike me and I've not even bothered cutting the stamps out of my stamp club kit, shocking lol, but this little cutie I just had to have as soon as I saw her. She's brave swimming among those fish, as some of you know fish scare the living daylights out of me I won't even clean out my Brad & Becks (goldfish) I make hubby do it, & I most certainly won't sit out on the decking near those "sharks" pretending to be Koi in hubby's pond, you can hear them smacking their lips just waiting for a victim, shudder lol.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Magnolia
Pearls & pearl butterfly - Prima
Sentiment - Magnolia
Flowers - Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid
Tools - MS Deco Fan Shells PATP, Marianne Creatables decorative elegance, Nesties

I've stamped some Magnolia Shells in Tea Dye & Vintage Photo distressed inks and then smothered them in stardust stickles for that lovely sparkle, the ribbons are both from my stash.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Just Magnolia - anything goes (opt glitter), Crafty Calendar - under the sea, Creative Inspirations - summertime, Pile It On - stay cool, Die Cut Dreams - holiday fun, Lollipop - celebration, Stamping & Scrapping - summer fun, All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge - hot summer days, Deep Ocean - sea, Craft Your Passion - anything goes, Dutch Magnolia Lovers - bingo(glitter, punch, white), Crafting For All Seasons - sea/ocean, Divas By Design - summer, Really Reasonable Ribbon - sizzling summer, Totally Papercrafts - holidays
A big thank you to our lovely Heidi & Steph at Simon Says Stamp they have just treated the DT to another in store spending spree, woo hoo I'm off shopping, anyone want to come ?
 Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend

    I have finally coloured your images that I won in your candy a while back. 3 cards in my blog if you fancy have a look. I used prismas and it worked like a treat.

Morning Mandy, Fabulous card, it all looks so gorgeous.....as for the fish, well we used to have a Koi pond, and they would jump to catch anything that passed the water, oh it used to scare me to death, but I did love to see the frogs swim around, like little men doing the breast stroke..so cute...lol..xxx

  45. Hahaha! You're so funny, Mandy! You're card is lovely despite your vehemence toward aquatic creatures! I haven't seen all of the new stamps yet but of the ones I have seen, I agree with you that they aren't my favorites. This one's a keeper though! Beautiful coloring and embellishments... so soft and sweet... and the little sea shells are the perfect finishing touch.

    Hugs, Anniebee

  46. Another stunner!!! Love it!

    I actually cringed when I heard there was a new collection out, as I'm on a spending freeze to save up for our Paris trip. Come to find out there are only 4 that I even want!! That NEVER happens - I usually want them all!!!! I'm sure there are people super excited about all the sports Tildas but it just isn't my thing.
