My card this time is:
'Farewell Tilda'
and I have also
used a mini called 'Front Doorstep'
from  Alotta Mini Stamps.
I stamped Tilda first then covered her
to stamp the stairway over top.



I must apologize for the state of my photos!
My house is so dark it is very hard to take good shots.
I tried something different this time
and I think it turned out worse.
So I won't do this again.

As you see I made a round card this time.
I used Spellbinders Grand Circle, 3rd size.
and regular size Spellbinders circles with holes.
Other dies I used are:
Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirl
and some older flower punches I have.
This one is called 'Sakura'

Close up:



Side and top flowers with Seam Binding:



My card is distressed with
SU - Crumb cake.
DP are from Magnolia -
'Yummy for your Tummy'.
Clear flowers and pearls are from my stash
and Seam Binding is from - 
Ribbon Girl.

Here is the inside of my card:


I thought the soft colour paper
would be fine for writing the
message on. It is sure to be seen.

No Copic list this time - sorry. 
I used so many I didn't keep track :o(

See you tomorrow for the
Magnolia and Wee stamp Challenge.

Thank you for your wonderful 
comments. They make my day :o)

Love, Candy
