Tilda's Dolly

The other day when I was making my recent Magnolia cards, I had a crazy thought. (I will admit I DO have those way too often....)

* Ahem. *

Anyhooze.... I thought, I wonder if those new Mini Maggies are small enough to be a doll for a regular size Tilda?

And you know what?

They are!

What do you think?

I think the Easter Bunny has left dear Tilda a new toy!

I cut off the rose, cut around her arm and also cut around the arm of the adorable Mini Little Bunny Tilda to wrap them around each other.

I added Bazzill cardstock to the patterned paper and inked each piece with ColorBox white ink. One layer is sewed with a zig zag stitch on my regular sewing machine. Recollections pearls were added to the scalloped circles cut with my Spellbinder dies on my Cuttlebug.

Wild Orchid cherry blossoms were used on the bottom, along with some Martha Stewart punched oak leaves. The lace was from our local Dollar Store and the bow was made using my Bow Easy (I LOVE that tool!). I also finished it off with Diamond Stickles to Tilda's wing.

Here are the Copics used:

Tilda with Rose:  E0000, E00, E01, E30, E31, E33, E34, G20, G21, G24, G28, C3

Mini Bunny Tilda:  E0000, E00, R81, R83, R85
