Magnolia's Romantic Tilda with Parasol

Happy Sunday afternoon peeps.  It was my day off on Friday so thought I would spend some time colouring in my craft room,  been ages since I did that.  I've coloured all  the below Magnolia images with Copics, added some Glamour Dust, then heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder, I really like how the heat embossing makes the colours pop.

  For the card below I've used Magnolia's Romantic Tilda with Parasol, isn't she a lil cutie. Just a shame about my awful photography and poor lighting conditions, (I blame the dreadful weather we are having, it's so dark, wet and dreary today), as this isn't a true likeness to the real colours. Now to make up some more cards with the remaining coloured images......

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Midweek Magnolia - Autumn colours
Tildas Town - Fall is in the air
Craft your passion - Autumn/Fall colours
Dutch Magnolia Lovers - Anything Goes
House of Gilli - Anything Goes/Fall
Lexi's creations - Autumn Colours

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis.
Luv 'n' crafty hugs
