Tilda catching Stars - magnolia

The paper is MME isn't it lush, I wanted to use the vibrant yellows so needed something contrasting as the papers. The lace is from Stamp and Create, isn't it just gorgeous. I am going to be brave and enter this into the Just Magnolia DT call, I am not expecting anything, but would so love to join this team, if any of the team is visiting please look at my other cards to for more examples of my colouring.

Tilda as a bee - Totally Papercrafts DT.

The adorable Wendy has set this weeks challenge of 'things with wings' so I decided to use this new tilda. She was first of all on a flower and I hated that flower, so that went in the bin, then I put her on the watering can but it looked too flat so I decoupaged her,to add a tiny bit of depth. The paper is an old basic grey sheet from the mellow range, the binding is from the ribbon girl and the flower was a rak of a talented friend Gisele.
