Just Magnolia and a rain card to boot

As soon as I saw this 'doiley' punch technique on Claudia's blog I just knew I wanted to try it.
Then I saw the challenge over at Just Magnolia and thought how perfect!!  Punch perfect!!  LOL
So here is my attempt at a home made doiley using the Martha Stewart double loop punch.
Papers are Basic Grey (one of their Xmas ones) and the new Cosmo cricket Material girl.
Lace is a gorgeous Prima one.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.
Have used Spellbinders fancy labels for the tag and the sentiment is from SU.

And my gorgeous Fairytale Tilda Is from the soon to be released Fairytales range.  I got mine early from the wonderful Diana over at Magnolia-licious.
Tilda is coloured in with a mix of Copics for the skin (E11, E00, E000, and R20) and for the frog (YG67, YG63 and G21).  The frog has also been covered in dimensional magic.
And Pencils with OMS for the rest.  I dont use any fancy pencils either....just the regular kids faber castell ones from any Kmart.  i find they work great!  The OMS melts them perfectly.
And lots of Kindy glitz on her wings!!

Now this is one of my rain cards that Im sending out so if you are looking, and in the rain group, its a bit of pot luck as to whether you will get this one...or not!!   LOL.  I just put them in envelopes then address them so i dont know who gets what either!.
