Longing for you........

Magnolia-licious Highlites is having a fun challenge this month hosted by the uber talented Angie Hunt (if you have never visited her blog, you are in for a treat for your eyes........she is amazingly talented). Angie challenged us to use a brown paper bag in some way on our project. I cut out my brown paper bag for the 'trick or treat' little sign with my 'Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Small' Nestie. The stamp was from a set my sweet friend Nora sent to me last year. I added some bling to my flower brad as well as the outer edge of the tags using 'Black Diamond' Stickles glitter glue (luv that stuff). I also punched out a trim piece using my Lattice EK punch. OY was that a problem......my brown paper bag was much too thin & my punch wasn't playing nice (just ask my dear friend Charlene how much trouble I had.........LOL). But I managed to salvage a piece with Charlene's help (thanks a bunch) & then layered a strip of black sparkly ribbon that I purchased at my FAVorite LSS (local stamp store).

I made my huge flower using my Nesties 'Peony' die cut in graduated sizes. I layered it after 'Stickling' the daylights outta the edges with silver & cinnamon. Then added a huge brad in the center from Michael's.

My stamped image is the ever cute Tilda called "Longing Tilda". I don't see her in stock right now but you can let Diana at Magnolia-licious know & I'm sure she'll be happy to help you. Tilda is colored with my Copic markers & her dress, hair bow & little purse are glittered with Star Dust Stickles (did I tell you how much I love that stuff? LOL). The little purse was from a little $1 set of stamps from Michael's (I knew those would come in handy some day....LOL).

Lastly I distressed the card base, 'trick or treat' tags & flower with Black Soot Distress Ink.

These are the Copics I used:
Skin: E00, E000, E0000, R20
Hair: E30, E31, E41
Dress, hair bow & purse: C0, C1, C3, C5
