I just received this absolutely adorable Tilda stamp the other day and I just could not wait to ink her up. She is called Tilda with Balloon from the Magnolia You are So Special collection and they are now in stock at 7 Kids College Fund. All the stamps in this collection are super cute but this one is my favorite. Isn't she sweet?


I colored Tilda with copics and I inked the edges with Tattered Rose distress ink. Then I gave my card some sparkle by adding my favorite Stardust Stickles to just about everything- Tilda's bow and trim on the dress, edges of the papers, and the tips of the roses.
