Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge. Aug...

Hi folks as promised another challenge card & this one is for Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge for Aug.. the brief this month is 3D... Debby has some great 3D tutorial all her work is amazing so hop over & take a look see....back to the card.... well have I had fun with this creation.....of course loads, it starts with doing the 3D the wrong way..... don't ask.....then had to stamp Tilda out another 5 times & colour all over again.. well got this done & glued all the layers together & what hadn't I done??? cut out the image 1st. before I constructed it... so I couldn't cut it on the paper trimmer so tried to cut it with ruler & craft knife ... another mistake with my hands no way...so I had to cut Tilda out completely & have stuck her onto a green oval which I think works... I even made tiny orange buttons out of card & glossed them for her coat... well that's the story. Want to know what I used??? well this is it
Magnolia Tilda.. (there's a few Halloween ones don't know name sorry)
Image coloured with Prisma's & some glossy accents..
DP,s are a D/Load cant remember where from ..
Greeting & Bats C/B dies Cat sizzix...
Card from stock & ribbon I bought from a shop closing down..
Thanks for stopping by & any comms. you leave....Hugs Christine xx
Just a foot note ..now I have READ (should have done that 1st..) Debbys tutorial I will be making a another entry as per instructions... that'll teach me to read the postings properly..LOL

Great card Christine, the papers are perfect with the halloween theme and the embossing greeting is brill.
You have the patience of an angel to have to do her so many times lol.
