Just because you’re you

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a Maggie card for you following the great sketch at Cute Card Thursday
CCT#179 - SketchI used one of my all time fav’s Sweet Tilda and coloured her with copics and I little bit of prisma pencils. Over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges they want to see texture, so I used this great DP, it’s like quilting, very hard to explain and I hope you can see in the photo, but the paper is sort of raised, any whoo I will stop trying to explain it and just show you the pic, I have had this paper forever and can’t even remember where I got it. I teamed it up with Making Memories Note Worthy.
Just because you're you  Everything on this card has had a really good dose of Walnut Stain distress ink, and I love how it gives that vintage feel. Just Magnolia are playing BINGO this week, which is great fun. I chose Ribbon & Lace / Flowers / Gems , the flowers & lace are from WOC and the pearls are from Kaisercraft, the sentiment is from Verve stamps. I also used spellbinder Heart circle die, and did some faux stitching around tilda, this is the first time I have done this, and didn’t do that well at it I am afraid lol.
InsideLots of room on the inside for a loving message to someone special. I think it’s important to leave plenty of room so the person giving the card can say how they feel.
Copic’s & Prisma pencils used
Hair E44,42,40 Shoe’s E44,42,41 pencil Dark brown , Dress R0000, 01,11,12 pencil Light umber, Skin E0000,000,00,R01.
