1st Sketch & Mingle Card

I am a new member of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group (my dear friend, Charlene, led the way.....thanks, Sis). This group is oozing with talent & so much inspiration. As part of that group I joined in the August Mingle. You make one card for one person during the month of August. Easy Peasy! So this is the card I made using my very first Tilda stamp "Tilda holding a single flower". She is available from Magnolia-licious. Diana has great customer service & is a delight.

Anywho.......on Magnolia-licious Highlites the amazingly talented Becca designed this sketch. So I decided to join in the fun there too for my very first time.

By the way.........another "first" for me was paper piecing Tilda's dress.

Thanks for looking & let me know what you think.

Cardbase: DCWV
