Magnolia Card - Tilda With Umbrella

Today I decided to follow the instructions in the Splitcoast Stampers tutorial for a Center Step card.  I am still stuck in the Elegant Soiree designer paper rut, so out it came again.  I am excited that Stampin' Up! is not going to retire the buttons this year.  I have some and want to use them on more class cards.  Now I can!
This card uses a non Stampin' Up! main image.  It is Tilda With Umbrella from the 2010 Bon Voyage Collection. . . . . . .
I stamped Tilda in StazOn on Stampin' Up! watercolour paper.  Then coloured her with my Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Pen (colours listed below).  I used nestabilities Labels 4 Small (largest one) to cut her out, then used Labels 4 (largest one) to cut a mat, which I spritzed with Champagen Mist Shimmer Spritz (you can just see the shimmer a bit).  I added 5 Naturals Designer Buttons (Stampin' Up!) on each side of the step, and put a circle of Baja Breeze under each one before I glued it on the DSP.  I stamped "Dot Dot Dot" in Baja Breeze on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and put it behind the mat.  The mat and the image piece are popped up on dimensionals.
Here's a closer view of the buttons .......
And a closer view of the stamped and coloured image ......

Inside I used another piece of Elegant Soiree DSP and cut a Top Note Die out of Very Vanilla.  I stamped a stamp that comes from a retired stamp set - Sweet Summer - in Early Espresso and coloured it with Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers.......
Marker colours used:
   Hair - Daffodil Delight
   Skin - Blushing Bride
   Pants - Not Quite Navy
   Shirt - Baja Breeze
   Shoes - Crumb Cake
   Umbrella - Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake
   Grass - Pear Pizzazz
Thanks for visiting, Happy Stampin' ... ... ...
