Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello everyone!  I have been reading others' blogs for a while now, but always dismissed the idea of starting my own.  Then I discovered all the challenge blogs out there and could not pass up the fun and creativity they offer.  So, welcome to my first post ever on my shiny new blog.  Today I have made a simple valentine's day card using Fairy Tale Tilda.  Hope you like it!  I just discovered these Magnolia stamps late last year and absolutely fell in love with the sweet little characters.

Materials used:

Fairy Tale Tilda is stamped on 300g watercolor paper using Black StazOn and is colored using Ranger Distress inks and watercolor pencils:
Flowers/ribbons: Victorian Velver and Tattered Rose
Hair: Antique Linen and Walnut Stain
Skin: Antique Linen and Staedtler watercolor pencil #43
Cheeks: Tattered Rose
Frog: Scattered Straw and Forest Moss
Leaves/grass: Forest Moss
Dress: Weathered Wood
Wings: Distress Stickles in Rock Candy
Papers are from Stampin' Up and have been distressed and inked with Walnut Stain.
Ribbon is from a local scrapbook store - I do not remember the brand or color name.
Hearts are a fiskars punch.

I am entering this card in the following fun challenges:

Thank you for the opportunity to play and good luck to all who are playing along!
