Tilda Celebrates St. Patty's Day

Hello Magnolia Fans,

I am not big on celebrating St. Patty's Day however, my mom does and my son why he thinks he is Irish. Last week when I was in Michaels I found this clover book and decided to make a couple of decorations for my mom and son. I finished my mom's today.

I used Summer Tilda with Hat and she became Tilda St. Patty's style. I colored her with Copic Markers E000, E00, E11, E41, E42, E43, E25, E31, E50, G21, G26, G40, R20, W00, and W01. I added some yellow glitter pen to the hearts on her dress and bow then added a little green bling as the buttons on her top (this was my husband's suggestion).

The background paper I bought at Michaels and the other paper was from my stash. I sprayed the doily with Forest Green Glimmer Mist. I absolutely love Elegant Scrollwork die from Memory Box which I used to embellish the ornament. The pot of gold and the shamrock are embellishments from Jolee's Boutique.

Here is a close up of Tilda.

On the back I used my Cricut and cut out the letters for "Happy St. Patty's Day!". I finished with a green bow to hang the decoration.

Let me know what you think! Thanks as always for stopping by with your encouragement and "sweet" comments.
