Midweek Magnolias #67

Good morning friends and bloggers,
I would like to welcome my new followers, so happy to see you here! 

Today is Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at the Midweek Magnolias. This week we have something sweet in store for you:

Make it girly with ribbons and pearls
So get your Maggies out and join us!

I used my Pippi Longstocking for this card. I just love this stamp.
As a child growing up, Pippi (a character from books by Astrid Lindgrens) was one of my heroes. She was a strong, independent girl who could do anything ! She had a big bag with lots and lots of gold coins to spend, and when she rode her horse (the withe one with the black dots) with her pet monkey on one shoulder she used to whistle the Pippi Longstocking- song melody.
This is such a happy childhood memory for me...lol. Every time I see this stamp I start humming this melody to myself...lol.

I used papers from Bildmålarna, ribbon and lace from the LLC store and Papirpikene, the pearls and pearl brad are from WOC, the flowers are by WOC and the charm is from LLC and the music note clip is by Tim Holtz. The sentiment is by Norsk Stempelblad AS, and the die used is a spellbinder die. 

I colored the Pippi Longstocking image from Magnolia with my Copic Markers. Colors used: 
Skin: E13-11-00-000, W3
Hair: E77-74-71-70, W7, E35-37-30,
Clothes: E77-74-71-70, W7-5-3-1-00
Dots around the image: W1-00, C1-00, E 71-70
I used Frantage- Shabby White-  around the image too.
Here it is again. Hope you like it.
Please stop by the Midweek Magnolias to see the beautiful creations by the rest of the DT
and join in for a chance to win a fabulous surprise gift from Magnolia in Sweden.

I would like to enter the Totally Tilda challenge with this card: Going for a song.
My song is "Pippi Longstocking" a well known children's song in Scandinavia.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today,
wising you a wonderful hump day!
