TPS sketch time!!

Well, it's time for another sketch at Tickled Pink Stamps monthly challenges and this months sketch is absolutely delicious, i love it!!
What do you think... awesome, huh?! I can see this one getting a bit of use from me (I already have plans for another card using it, lol!)
and here is my card...
Don't you just love this adorable couple, Tilda and Edwin, all grown up, *sigh*. I just had to have this stamp when I saw it, and what is fabulous about it is even though it is from the wedding collection Tilda does not look particularly bridal so these two could be used on any card that required a couple, engagements, perhaps for a girl doing her deb, maybe a couple celebrating a new home or a congratulations on a couple announcing a new baby on the way... yes ladies, I am obsessed (I keep trying to talk the DT ladies at TPS and MDUC to get pregnant so I can make cute baby cards, come on girls!!) anyways, I got a bit off track there, it's a pretty versatile stamp, let your imagination go wild!!
The stamp (magnolia wedding collection), the papers (magnolia fairytale collection), the FABULOUS lace and magnificent charm are all from Tickled Pink Stamps, who ship stamps only overseas, so head on over to get your rubber fix, and they are also selling, back by popular demand, personalised stamps and the pre order for the new magnolia bon voyage travel collection, papers and new doohickeys starts HERE... on the 15th!!!
The image is coloured with my copics and the background is shaded with chalks and a few highlights added with my white gel pen. The flowers are all from I am roses and the pearls and pins from my stash.
I am also entering this card over at :
The ABC Challenge - Y is for you and me
Paper Sundaes - White plus one, I chose pink!
Pile it on - My favourite things (kraft cardstock!!! lace and charms and flowers and magnolia stamps, I love so many of the things I have used on this card :D)

Fran, I am sorry I am so late commenting, too much happening in the Turner household lately. I too am glad you used a Maggie for this challenge. Your card is breathtakingly beautiful, all that scrumptious lace and gorgeous papers and flowers. The image is fabulous and your colouring is perfect. Loved my birthday card, I just looked up & spotted it and had to thank you again, hugs Jodie from Oz
