To Add or Not Too Add, that is the question......

Hello everyone how are you all? Hope you all have a fabby dabby weekend, we have the sun shining here by the sea...........fingers crossed it stays for a while ;0)

Here is my card I made a couple of days ago, something landed through my letterbox & I had to use them or 1 of them anyway, straight away lol.
You see the gorgeous Joy Craft die that the image is matted onto that, well those came through my door & OMG I'm soooooooo in love with them. I also inked the raised parts with Weathered Wood DI.

Added Tim Holtz On The Edge 'Snow Flurries' & some pom pommy stuff along the top ;0)

The gorgeous paper at the bottom is Magnolia 'Old Angel Script' which I thought went perfect with this stamp. It has also been inked with Weathered Wood. The strip along the middle is a scrap piece but I think its from the 'Rondelle' pad. Silver ribbon is from my stash.

This is 'Dancing With Stars Tilda' & she is coloured with Copics.
I have to say this is my favourite Maggie stamp she is just lush & of course she has wings & I lurve wings.

Inside I have kept plain & just added another Joy Craft die inked the same way as the front. I'm not sure if there should be something else on this card, not quite sure if something is missing........hence my post title lol. I did want Tilda & that die to be main focus so that bit works lol.

Ingredients used..............
Magnolia 'Dancing With Stars Tilda' - Sir Stamp A Lot
Magnolia paper - Sir Stamp A Lot
Melissa Frances Pearls - My Crafty Heart
'Rondelle' paper - My Crafty Heart

Well I will see you all soonies I have all the family coming over shortly but will be round to see you all at some point during today. Thank you so so much for stopping by it means the world to me.
Toodles, take care mmwah xxxxxxxxxx
