Dream a little dream...

I know I say this a LOT, but I love this stamp!

This is Dreamy Tilda from Magnolia. She was one of those stamps that I saw and had to have. I had like 30 ideas of things to do with her the minute I saw her. This time I picked her for 2 reasons. First, one of the challenges I was after is a Magnolia challenge. Second, I chose her because she totally fits in my square lables nestie so well!
The challenges I hit are:
1. HERE - use glitter - I used shimmerz on the wings and the ribbon has built in glitter (though I don't know if my photography showed that well enough)
2. HERE - color challenge - use "regal rose," "certainly celery," "bashful blue," and a neutral. Welll, I'm not certain which company those color names are from, but I do know that whichever it is - it's not in my stash. So, I chose some colors from the PaperTrey stash I have that I thought were probably close.
3. HERE - use a magnolia and a sketch. I think I followed the sketch pretty close. I did add the nestie instead of a plain square, did a little extra layering (with the nestie and the little rectangles both). Also, they had a big strip down - I used my brown PTi cardstock that I used for my layering, but I stamped it with a brown fluid chalk ink with a pretty floral border stamp. (I hope you can see it in the picture.) I layered the ribbon on top of that, and since I was going to do the sentiment part on the inside, I decided to use a bow on the outside.

Primas, copics, dewdrops were the other embies I used. (I colored on the bottom of my dewdrops with my copics to make them a little brighter... still undecided whether I like them that way, or the more muted look...)

I think that's all I got. Have a good Thursday - it's almost a 3 day weekend, not too much longer!

~enjoy~
