It's a Magnolia Challenge #20 + Candy

Hi friends, I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving in the USA and a very nice weekend everywhere else. Sorry I'm a little late with my DT posting for IAMC. We went visiting my mother-in-law this weekend and I forgot my pictures on my home computer... so frustrating. Anyway, this time for challenge #20 we would like to see your creations using punches. But that's not all! We also have a fabulous 300 followers blog candy. You'll love it!

The Thanksgiving Holiday has inspired me to create this Thank You card and altered jar set. I used my sweet Tilda with cherries and Butterfly sign stamps from Magnolia. The papers are Happy Harvest collection from Imaginisce.

To create the bottom edge of my card and the borders for the altered jar I used Martha Stewart's Pinking Scallop punch. I made the little flowers using a 1 1/2" circular punch and I also used a 2" circular scallop punch to decorate the cap of my jar.

The beautiful silk flowers are from Recollections and I added these gorgeous flower centers I found at my local arts and crafts store.

I colored Miss Tilda with my Copic markers. Skin: E11, E00, E000, E0000 and R20. Dress and Shoes: R39, R29, R27, R24 and R22. Sign and Basket: E59, E57, E33, E31 and E50. Grays (Dress and Socks): C7, C5, C3 and C1. Shadows: W5, W3 and W1. Butterfly: YR18, YR15 and YR12 with some orange Stickles.

Entering the Totally Tilda Challenge: Masking.
