Baking Tilda for Three Challenges

This sweet little Tilda is for three different challenges:

Just Magnolia - sketch by Rach (shown below). I moved the circle on the bottom left to the top left to suit my preferences and used a flower for the circle on the bottom right. For the circle on the left, I used my new Victorian Cuttlebug embossing folder. I really like some of the new designs that are out now. I added glitter to Tilda's wings and cookies.

Stampin' for the Weekend - pink and gray color challenge. This was tougher than I thought it would be. I have virtually no DP that is pink and gray. I do have pink and I have a limited amount of gray, so I put them together. The mats in the photo might look black, but they are actually dark gray.

Stamp Something - birthday somethings. I added the little Happy Birthday tag to fit this challenge.

Stamps: Baking Tilda (Magnolia); Happy Birthday (My Sentiments Exactly)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Paper: Pink cardstock (DCWV); gray cardstock (unknown); gray polka dot DP (Paper Pizazz); dark pink DP (Kay & Co.)
Tools: Rectangle, scalloped rectangle, circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Victorian embossing folder (Cuttlebug); Tiny Tags die (Cuttlebug)
Embellishments: Small flower (Prima); larger flower - silk from my stash; jewelry spacer, pearl, rhinestone brad, glitter
Technique: Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits
Finished card size: 6" square

Hi Judy, that Tilda image is just the cutest and the glitter is perfect on her wings! I really love the victorian embossed circle too, I need that folder now! Beautiful card as always :)

Such a sweet card and the colors are so feminine. Very pretty!!

ps The tri-shutter tutorial uses a paper cutter, not a craft knife. I don't like using a craft knife either.
