Hip Hurray Tilda - Tags and Pockets

Hello bloggers!

Hope each of you is felling well, you had a great weekend and are full of energy. Today a new challenge is setting off @ Inky Chicks Challenge blog. The theme is "Summer Colors". How do you see summer? Which colors are your favorite summer ones?

I thought a lot, and couldn't choose only one, so my creation has a lot of colors, like a rainbow :)

I used a Magnolia stamp called "Hip Hurray Tilda" from the "Special Moments" 2013 collection, and created not a card, but a kind of booklet. When several friends want to present a card for another friend, and each one of them want his own place to write a sentiment, this booklet is the best thing! There are 4 tags in it for 4 people to fill in with warm words. This is how the booklet looks on the front:

For coloring I used the following Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, R20
Hair: Y21, YR23, E15, E18
Pants + Balloon:  BV000, BV02, BV13, BV08
T-Shirt: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Shoes: T6, T4, T3, T1

The booklet measures 3.5" X 5.5". The first flap of the pages looks as follows:

The second:

The tags on the top may be pulled out:

The pockets with the butterflies have another 2 tags:

The whole construction looks like this (top view):

And here is the back side:

The papers I used are from the Basic Grey 6X6 paper pad "Kneehighs". All the pages i n it are very colorful and summery.

That's it for today. Hope you'll join us for the challenge at Inky Chicks!
