Two for One Challenge

Good afternoon stamping friends. I've had this Tilda from Magnolia for a while and only inked it up once. Today, I went to Just Magnolia and found their challenge, and I wanted to join, so I did. The submissions here are truly awesome, so competition is keen. I rarely see this Tilda used. A quick perusal of the submissions didn't show me anything. I enjoy coloring her stockings and I like that she's in a sitting position. I have written down different ways I can pose her, so I think I'll get some good use from her.

In order to play BINGO, you follow the rules. Cute way to challenge yourself, huh?

My card uses the elements on a diagonal and include gems (pearls), flowers (Michaels' wedding five point flowers colored with copics), and ribbon/lace (lace from my stash). The balloons are done with a Nestie die and the sentiment is Nestie diecut and is from SU's Circle of Friendship (retired). I used an MS border punch and a doily. Papers are all SU except for the ds which is My Minds Eye's pad called Simply BEautiful. Leaves are done with MS punch. I've used all copics to do the coloring.

I've also entered this card in Cute Card Thursday Challenge no. 180. There you need to use at least one punch. I've used

     MS border punch (on two panels)
     Nestabilities Lacy Circles (largest and smallest dies)
     Nestabilities birthday balloons (my name for it)                                                 
     McGlll multi-flower punch (the tiny center pink flower)
     Punch A Bunch (leaves)
See you all this weekend.  Two fun challenges I'll be in are Simply Create and Less Is More See my sidebar blinkies for direct links if you want to play.
