April sketch challenge for Magnolia-licious = Cherry Tilda

It's the beginning of April, which means it's time for another sketch challenge! Each designer takes turns designing a sketch for the monthly challenge, and this month, it was Queen Diana herself that designed this one!
I used three different Magnolia stamps for this card. I used the Old Oak Tree, the old bench, and Cherry Tilda, and colored them up with my Copic markers. The old bench and Tilda are both popped up off the card.

I added lots of machine stitching on this one. The flower button in the ribbon is Daisy D's with a little pink Robin's Nest dew drop in the middle of it. I also added a little Prima flower to the corner of the tag. I really wanted to keep this one nice and simple.



The DP is by DCWV and cardstock is Bazzill. That's pretty much it for this card. We'd love it if you would visit us over at Magnolia-licious and join in on the sketch challenge. Just email your card to Diana at ladydian@shaw.ca and she will upload your card to the April sketch card gallery. If you haven't already, please be sure and join the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group while you're over there visiting Magnolia-licious! Not only will you meet the best people in the world, you will also learn lots, have amazing fun with all of our challenges, swaps, and contests, AND you will get special discount codes and special treats when you order! Join the group for all the details when you're visiting Magnolia-licious! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and have a fabulous Friday!!

Sharon, this is such a cute, cute, card! That tree with all the leaves looks great, like you popped the leaves on! And Tilda, oh sweet Tilda, you colored her so wonderfully, as always. I love the ribbon treatment with the dew drops added, and all that stitching! Simple card? No, I don't think so...I can see you put alot of work into it and it's just a great card!

Another gorgeous card Sharon. I love the green and red combo, always makes me think of apples or maybe the strawberries you added?
