Tilda with Tulips - Just Magnolia Challenge #3

I created this card for the Just Magnolia challenge. I chose the image Tilda with Tulips because we are finally having two or more warm days in a row here. I think Spring finally made it to stay for awhile. It's been a really chilly and wet one so far. I actually think our tulips bloomed several weeks ago, but they are still one of my favorite spring flowers and I just love this sweet image of Tilda.
This week's challenge was a sketch, which I have posted below. A lot of the DT members used a swirly die for the top right corner, but I used a stamp because I don't have one of those cool dies yet. I think my friend Susan bought the last one on earth. :) I used gems for the upper left and lower right corners. I don't think they look as big in person as they do in the picture. I also used gems in the centers of all the flowers. Still a little more bling than usual for me, but not quite so much as my Anya card I posted the other day. She had to be over the top though. She's a rock star after all.
Thanks for stopping by. Check out the other awesome cards posted for the Just Magnolia challenge this week. I always find them inspirational and I think you will to.

Very cute Judy! Love how you added and embellished that flourish and criss-crossed that ribbon! Your coloring is perfect as usual.

This is so cute. I didn't have a swirly either so I stitched one with my sewing machine. You did a super job. TFs
