Wrapped Tilda card - Magnolia-licious DT Challenge

Update:  Reposting this for the May Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop, I hope you enjoy all the hops.  If you arrived from Deb's fabulous blog, you are on the right track, if not go back to the beginning HERE and visit all of the stops on the hop. Here is my submission.....

I got to colour another Magnolia image a few days ago, so I decided to follow May's Magnolia-lious DT Challenge, AND make it completely white except for the image.  My friend Candy gave me the most awesome birthday card (here is a link to her posting of that card) and it was all white, except for the image.  It was so striking, that I just had to do the same.  It was really fun, and no fussing to find out matching cardstock, copic colours, designer papers and embellishments!  Everything was white!  Here's my card:
I used my Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up! on some Whisper White cardstock.  Then I cut out around it and used it for the corners.  This paper was then spritzed with the new Smooch Spritzes available now.  I used Vanilla Shimmer.  OMG it is gorgeous IRL!  I love this Magnolia Tilda image, she is so cute.  This card uses all Stampin' Up! products except for the image, the copics I used to colour her, and the Stickles - Star Dust.  Here is what I used:
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Punches:  5 Petal, Boho Blossom
Other:  Elegant Bouquet and Square Lattice embossing folders, half pears from Pretties Kit, Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer, Whisper White Satin Ribbon
The flower in the bottom LH corner is 2 5 petal punches and 2 boho blossom punches, then they are smooched and crumpled and shaped, then smooched again.  It has a half pearl inside it.  The flowers on the other two corners are just cut outs leftover from when I cut out the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, they are also smooched.
Here is a picture of the shimmer from the Smooching..... Oh My isn't it gorgeous????
And here is a picture of Tilda and the letter up close:


I used a lot of sparkle on this card between the Smooching and the Stickling....
Here is a list of the Copic Markers I used:
Skin:  E0000, E000, E00, E11
Cheeks:  R30, R20, R21
Hair:  W3, W5, W9
Dress:  G0000, G09, G14, G24, G21
Dress Trim:  W00
Socks:  G0000, G21, Blender Pen
Bow:  R0000, R24, R27, R29
Berries:  R0000, R27, R29
Holly:  G0000, G21, YG63, YG67
Letter:  W00, W1
Shadow:  W1

Glenda, what a beautiful card. I love this white on white theme. I’ve only done it once myself—should do it more often. It’s wonderful because you focus on Tilda right away when you first see the card. She is just too adorable. Beautifully coloured. Terrific cut-out work and your handmade flower is gorgeous. Love the card.

Hugs.
Norma
