Tilda With Balloons - Mojo Monday 135

Ah another sweet Tilda card.  I love doing these as I can really let my creativity run wild, and use ribbons, buttons, punches, fussy cutting, and of course the Magnolia images.  How much more fun can life get than being able to create cards every day!!!!  I absolutely LOVE my life right now, thank you Lord for giving us so many riches and the ability to enjoy each and every one of them. 
Anyways, back to the card.......

Here's the front of the card.......

I coloured the image with Copic Markers a while ago and will post the colours at the end of this post.  The cardstock is Orchid Opulance (retiring), Real Red, Pretty In Pink, and Whisper White.  The designer paper is Shades of Spring (retiring).  I used a MS punch for the punched strip on the left hand side, and a Nestability to cut out the shape behind Tilda.  Then before I removed the die, I sponged some Pretty In Pink classic ink on the middle of the shape.  Then I took the Orchid Opulance marker (retiring) fine tip and drew around the die to define the outline of the sponged area.   This shape is popped up on the DSP, and then Tilda is cut out and popped up on the shape.  The ribbon is Whisper White and Pretty In Pink Satin ribbon from Stampin' Up!.  The Pretty In Pink cardstock piece was run through my Big Shot with the new Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder by SU!  The flowers, as usual, are hand done.  I punched out the medium and small daisy marvy shapes out of Whisper White and Pretty In Pink cardstock.  Then I added a very small circle of So Saffron cardstock in the middle of each flower, and put some Diamond Stickles on top of that.  I really mounded the Stickles so it looks like rounded flower centers.  There are also some MS branch punches in Old Olive in there.  Tilda's balloons have Crystal Effects on them, and her wings have Stardust Stickes on them. 
Here's a picture of Tilda and the flowers up close:
 


















I also did the inside this time, and really took it up a notch from my usual insides, even for my Magnolia image cards!
Here's a picture of the inside..............
I used another Nestability shape for the Whisper White cardstock inside.  There is a layer of Real Red, then a layer of the Shades Of Spring DSP (retiring).  The flowers are a repeat of the ones on the front of the card, but I added 3 of the Large Daisy punches behind them, and some MS branch punches in Old Olive.  I sponged around the white shape with Pretty In Pink classic ink (SU).  Then I decided the other side of the inside needed something, so I hand cut out one of the printed images from the Shades Of Spring DSP (retiring) from the sheet, and adhered it......
and here is an up close picture of the inside flowers:
