Hey Mr. Postman

Hey Mr. Postman, look and see, is there a letter ooohhh yay, in that bag for me......
Sorry, now I have that song stuck in my head. Back to the cards, Bec, yes, I know.
Ok, so I made this card today for the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under. The theme this week is All Aboard - travel themed cards. This stumped me pretty much all week. I do not have any of the cute Magnolia traveling images or stamps, so I had to improvise, and this is what I came up with.
I used Tilda in Windy Weather, from the Cozy Autumn Magnolia Collection. I LOVE her, isnt she adorable. I basically wanted the card to look like she had just landed at her tropical vacation, and now it was raining. I have been in her shoes before, landed in Mexico with my bathing suit in hand, ready for the beach, when a hurricane hit, and it rained our ENTIRE trip. It was the worst vacay I have EVER been on, but, I digress, back to the card. hehehe
I colored her with my copics:
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E25, E27, E29
Dress and Hat - C1, C3, C5, C7, R39, R34, R31
Umbrella and gloves - R31, R34, R39
Shoes - W1, W3, W5, W7

I used Webster's Pages Seaside paper collection. I love how the luggage was on the design paper, it worked perfect for this card. I used a Crafty Secrets Stamp set I have to stamp the airplane in the distance, and the PostCard Sentiment.
I used a TON of sparkle on this card. I added stickles in Diamond to her dress ruffle, umbrella, hat bow, and belt. I also added some red mini roses from reccollections and a cream twisted rose from, which I also dusted with a bit of stickles yo give them sparkle. I used stickles on the luggage, because of course Tilda's baggage has to have bling!!!! Prima bling and pearls just finish off the sparkle and shine!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - G is for Glitter
Papertake Weekly - Sparkly and Bright
Totally Gorjuss - Sparkle
