Show us your frillies!

I have been invited to be a member of the Sweet Stampin' Design Team! I'm so excited and look forward to posting a card every other week for this Challenge. The challenge for this week is named "Show Us Your Frillies!"  You can find this challenge at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog.
Here is a frilly card with a Magnolia stamp named Tilda In Ballet Shoes.

Here's a close-up picture of Tilda's tutu. I used Copics to color her and was very generous with glitter on her tutu and on the edges of the flower petals. She is more "pink" in person rather than purple. She actually matches the pink flowers. Am I the only one that has this problem with photography?!

I used the Magnolia lacy flower die and an assortment of flowers from Kaiser, Wild Orchids and a satin ribbon flower. I added four little feathers to the flower arrangements. The wind was blowing as I photographed this, so the feathers are a little blurry. The leaves are a die from Memory Box. The ticket stamp and die are from Whimsy Stamps.

I used a Spellbinders die around Tilda and lace from my fabulous stash of blog name is Lacey Lassy after all! I added this small satin bow made from the same ribbon as the ribbon rose on the other side of Tilda.  My papers came from a local craft store.
