Tilda With Flowers

Nothing says spring like little girls and flowers. My girls always loved spring and flowers. My house used to smell like fresh picked and dead dandelions and we all had that yellow pollen all over our hands. And don't you just love all the new, fresh colors for spring and the smell of those new clothes? Oh, this Tilda with Flowers takes me back to those times with my girls.

Another thing that I love about little girls is their headstrongness when they start picking out their own clothes. That was both of my girls and if you've read any of my earlier posts, you know about my Nichole's love for her rubber pull up boots!

Tilda With Flowers is from the new Chasing Butterflies Collection from Magnolia. Summer at Roses on Paper has a few left and more coming in so hurry on over and take a peek at what's available. This collection is going fast and is too cute for words! I colored Tilda with Distressed Inks and the paper is from the Spring Collection from DCWV. Love them this year! I love the flowers on the paper and wanted to show it off as much as possible. Flower Soft is added for the flowers in the basket to give it some dimension. I put some buttons in the corner and used some Scrapper's Floss to accent the buttons. Kind of like small flowers! As for Tilda's boots, I added some Glossy Accent to make them shine. I think she's just precious!

With all the rain we've been having, I'm hoping for lots of spring flowers for little girls to pick. Now if Allie and Emma will grow a little faster, Nana will promise to have some dandelions in her yard for them to pick!

Card Ingredients:

Tilda With Flowers from Magnolia, Distressed Inks, BasicGrey Buttons from the Euphoria collection, ribbon from stash, Scrapper's Floss, Flower Soft in Summer Mix and Shamrock Green.
