Magnolia-licious Design Team Sketch for November featuring Witch Tilda with pumpkins

Happy Saturday, everyone!! Hope you're enjoying your weekend! This month for the Magnolia Design Team Sketch Challenge, the "oh so awesomely talented" Kerry, designed our sketch for us! Thank you Kerry! This was a great sketch! I turned it around for my card. I used #395, Witch Tilda with pumkins that I received from Magnolia-licious. As soon as I laid eyes on her, I thought she was a Pilgrim Tilda, not a witch. I think it's because the tip of her hat is blunt instead of pointed. She's colored with Copics.

I have always admired the pumpkins I've seen my friend DeeDee make with her Nestabilities. But I wanted an oval that was a bit wider than the Nesties that I have. So I used my Expression machine with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and cut ot three ovals. I used some chalk ink on the edges and popped up the middle oval from the other two. Added a bit of jute for the stem, and voila! A cute pumpkin! The paper I used is Basic Grey Ambrosia, and the ribbon is Offray. Please be sure and visit Magnolia-licious Highlites blog to play along with the Design Team challenge! Link your project up to the blog and you will have a chance to win a FREE stamp from Diana at Magnolia-licoius! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!

This card is just delightful. I agree! I think this Tilda is a Pilgrim because of the hat, and I love the colors your so beautifully colored her with. Great pumpkin too, love the jute stem...

Hi Sharon,
Awesome card!!! Love the pumpkin you made - the top oval looks like some hand dyed fabric I own! This Tilda is surely a cutie and I don't think she is a witch either - and she has pumpkins on her lap!
Great colouring as usual......
