Easel cake card

Hells bells i am ot sure if you call this an easel cake card, i dont even remember where i saw it, but there have been a few around of late.  There was a tutorial that i came across also, but all in inches and 5/8ths etc, didnt make sense to me so i just did this on a wing and a prayer.
This delightful little image Tilda with small gift is available from Magnolia-licious, however so popular that she is unavailable right now, sure it wont be long before Diana has her back in the store.

I had so much fun putting this together and managed to dig in and use some of my new punches, die cuts, paper and flowers.  I also have loads of paint, dont know when or why i thought i was gonna become a Picasso rip off artist, but i have a weakness for anything craft related, sure we all have, lol.  I dug into the paints and found this fab puff paint, when you heat it, it puffs up, so i thought it would be great to do the icing with.

I am gonna enter the following challenges with this little ensemble:
Addicted to stamps: Pink and brown
Magnolia down under: Favourite things, mine are all over the place like a rash, pearls, flowers and of course Tilda
DYSU: Add a tag
Just Magnolia: Lace
Thats it for now, have a great week

Magnolia-licious new challenge dt

Our fabulous new challenge on Magnolia-licious challenges is a color challenge this week and it is " Black and white + another color of your choice"  The color of my choice was purple as you can see by my card.  Whats up with that?  i dont normally do purple as i am a pink girl, but there you go, different day, different mood i geuss.
For my card i used Indian Tilda available from Magnolia-licious store where you get service with a smile, sadly lacking in South Africa these days, and speedy delivery i amy add from Diana's store
I added loads if pearls to this ensemble and star dust stickles, sadly i didnt take note of my copics that i used.
The inside of my card is as simple as the outside, but i really didnt want to hide all of this blingy patterned paper.
As this post goes live i am gearing up for a major accomplishment for myself, will share details later so watch this space.  Also if you have notcied i have finally hit 500 followers which i never imagined sould happen and i am alomost on to 90,000 hits, so watch out for a candy posting as soon as i have time to come up for air.
have a great week
