Talking about last minute. This one is last minute. I saw this challenge this week and really wanted to participate. With so many personal demands, I just got to it today. It was a real challenge but oh so much fun. You can see the challenge at Roses On Paper Designer team blog. The challenge was to use the sketch below with any Magnolia or Whiff of Joy stamp. These are the stamps that are available at Roses on Paper.

I chose to use a Magnolia stamp. I am unsure of the name. If anyone knows it's name, please let me know. I bought it back in September and am just now made the time to use it. I loved stamping it and coloring with Gamsol. Tilda is so cute and fun!! Who can resist?!! The sketch was different from my normal but oh so much fun. Thanks for the challenge.

I just purchase this paper today. It is a new DCWV stack called Garden Party. Nice spring colors!!!

The image is popped on dimensionals and layered. Some of the image is glittered (boots, bow, and the cuff on the sleeve). The flowers in the corner are hand crocheted and dyed with SU Cameo Coral. The flourishes are a Valentine Sizzix flourish die. The leaves are cut from glitter paper using a Martha Stewart punch.
