Patriotic Tilda

Here's our inspiration for the current Magnolia-licious Challenge...
My card...

This was a fun challenge for me because I never seem to find use for a patriotic card until this summer. I made it from several kits I received in a swap last year including lots from the kit I made and shared.
I was particularly tickled by the silver star garland I found and snipped into pieces and worked into my card, adding a red faux crystal to make it bling-worthy. I think it made a terrific embellie as did the wired red glittery stars representing fireworks.

You've probably noticed that in addition to coloring Tilda with Copics I used two more techniques by paper piecing Tilda's dress from a polka dotted paper and hand drew the "USA" on Tilda's flag so my little American Tilda could show her patriotism!

Spellbinders Labels 8 made a perfect base for Tilda on my easel card.

Here's a peek at a few more angles and the card interior:
