Pink and green, Magnolia Style

I have been having such a blast playing with some of my new Magnolia Stamps, and I just could not resist inking up Tilda with Hawaiian Flower (one of my NEWEST purchases, shhhhh) and going with bright colors. I LOVE her, isnt she a doll. She just screams, Hawaii, tropics, VACATION. I am totally picturing tilda at a luau or getting ready for a beach party. LOL
I paired up Tilda with Hawaiian Flower with these yummy prima papers, Analee. I just love the colors of these papers, just gorgeous. I distress all the edges with my distress tool, and even tore some of the edges for further distress look. I printed out the sentiment, Sending Butterfly Kisses, from my computer onto Kraft cardstock and added some whinestones to make it pop.
I colored Tilda with copics
Skin - E00, E000, E11
hair - E99, E97, Y21, Y11
Dress, Socks, Flower - RV14, (bridge RV14 &RV10), RV10, RV00
Shoes - E44, E43, E40
Butterflies - YR04, YR13, YR00, Y15, Y13, Y00, YG03
I added lots of Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers. Hot Pink 25mm roses, whit 25mm roses which I used my copic airbrush to spray YG03 as I did not have any lime green flowers, and hot pink 15mm roses. I also punched out some Martha Stewart butterflies from hot pink paper and added some pink rhinestones. The pink gingham ribbon was added, then I put a lime green silk ribbon in the middle with a double bow tied with my Bow Easy.
I finished off the inside with more of the pretty design paper and ribbon. There is lots of room for a personal sentiment.
