Butterfly Tilda

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your week.  Mine is good so far, with a long holiday weekend at the end of it.  Today I'm sharing a card I made with one of my new Magnolia stamps (I think I warned you all you'd be seeing some of these stamps).  I'm really happy with how this card turned out. 

I made an easel card since I haven't done one of them in a while.  I also used some of my Wild Orchid flowers, and the big blue flower is from Magnolia (all of which I haven't used in a while).  I got the butterfly a while ago at Michaels and thought it would look cute as well. 

I'm really happy with how my coloring turned out.  I'm finishing up my first online class over at the Color Me Creative Classroom and I took Suzanne Dean's CMC On the Road class when she was in South Carolina recently.  I think both of those classes have helped me in terms of coloring and light source.  You can check Suzanne's schedule for upcoming On the Road classes here.  I really enjoyed the class and loved that Suzanne walks around the room and answers questions and offers help during the class.  Also, be sure to check out the summer special that Suzanne has for her online classes.  Better hurry though, because the special prices end July 15th.

And don't forget to check out the challenge over at the CMC Copic Challenge Group.  This time we want to see you color folds, pleats, or ruffles with those Copics.  Tiddly Inks is the sponsor and there is a great prize up for grabs.  Anyone can play but you can't win if you don't play, so head on over there and join in!
