A Mingle and entry for MDUC

Ok Marciava please do not look any further if you dont want to see your Mingle card!!
I have used the fabulous sketch over at MDUC to create my mimgle card for this month.  Its a fabulous sketch created by Kellie herself!!  How clever is she!!

Now theres something a wee bit different about this card!  When i was in my local Kmart the other day I saw what I thought was square envelopes and i thought..yay!!  So I grabbed them, and not having my glasses on I didnt really read the  Well when i got home they arent envelopes but Pouchette invitations.  So i thought OMG what am I going to do with them.  But the card above is what I came up with.
Whats a Pouchette invitation I hear you ask.  Well its basically a folded card.
Heres some photos that I hope explains it better.

Dont they look great!!! I was extremely happy when i thought up what to do with

Now for card recipe

The Tilda I have used is called Tilda with 3 flowers and she was from this years Easter collection.  Did you manage to snag her??  If not I have wonderful news for you!!  Over at Bizzy Bec's she is having a customer request order for some older or missed out on Magnolias and this Tilda just happens to be one you can order!  So if you missed out go and grab her she is such a versatile stamp!
She is coloured in with copics.  i will listt hem below for you all.
The fence is from the ATS's spring stamp kit and the sentiment is a SU one.
Papers are a bit of a mixture.  The yellow dotted on is october afternoon, the purple and blue bit are Crate I think.
The doiley is an old one i had floating around.  But if you want some doilies you can get some really nice ones over at Bizzy Becs!

Ok copic listing
