Magnolia Down Under Challenge

For the Magnolia Down Under Challenge we have been requested to make a card using fancy folds.After spending many hours on the net I decided to make a tri fold card. I am not sure if it's technically correct but I love the results. I decided to use the magnolia stamp, 'Christmas Angel Tilda'. She is coloured in using Copics in the following combinations,
 Hair E41, E43, E53,
Skin E00, E50, R20
Dress, B00, B23, B24, C1
Shoes, C1, C5
I used Bazzil Bling 'Blind Date', October Afternoon 'Picking Pumpkins and Kaiser 'Lumiere'.
After colouring Tilda I used Glossy Accents for her wings and Stickles 'Waterfall' for the stars. I then distressed around her and the papers using Tim Holtz distress ink 'Stormy Sky'. I then used Kaszazz sticky bling florish circles and single bling. The large flourish is mounted onto accetate. I really liked making this card and I am really pleased with the results, shame about my handwriting.

The setiment on the far right panel says
"If I had a star for everytime you made me smile I would be holding the night sky in my hands." Due to  my photographic skills it was hard to get a crisp photo of the white writing. It does look fantastic up close and personal.
