Mini-Me Luuuuuuv

Hi ya friends,
Hope you had a great crafty weekend. I spent Saturday at the Scrapbook Expo at Anaheim & did a bit o' damage! Yikes! but I'm doing my part to help the economy, right? ;)

Today I have a card for several challenges going on out there in the blogosphere & just in the nick of last minute for the monthly challenge at Magnolia-licious Highlites.
Here's my card:

I used this week's BEAUTIFUL color palette from CR84FN: Light Pink, Bright Pink, & Chartreuse
 I definitely need to make another card with these colors :)

This cutie Mini-Me Tilda is called Tilda with Many Hearts. She and the hearts are colored with Copics & then I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the hearts. That made them look like those cookies with crystal sugar :)
Here's a closer peek:
Don't look too closely at my coloring- a couple of my markers were on dry & desperately need to refill them. WoW! What a difference it makes :(
I used some Crystal Lacquer on her boots for that patent leather feel :) & her dress trim got a bit o' Stickles for sparkle. Then come the embellies of Prima flowers, a PTI button, bling, ribbon, lace, & a ticket from Whimsy Stamps.

Challenges for this card:
Magnolia-licious Highlites: Recipe- use heart, pink, silver (silver floss on button), white (lace)
CR84FN: Colors- light pink, bright pink, chartreuse
Just Magnolia- Mina's sketch
Magnolia Down Under- Flower Power
Magnolia Stamp Lovers: buttons & bling
Stamp Something: Flowers
Pink Elephant: Buttons, lace, ribbon
I Did It: Use Die cuts or punches (circle & heart Nesties)
Sweet Stamping- Oh so Girly
Res-Q Challenge: Make a square card

Phew! That may be my all time record! My blog pal, Anne (Stargroves), always makes this looks so easy ;)

Thanks for peeking today!
