Totally Tilda Challenge

I cannot believe that I am typing a post at 11pm... Whilst skyping with my blog buddy who lives in Johannesburg, I managed to make another card this evening for the challenge How Does Your Garden Grow at Totally Tilda's Challenge blog.

Now, as I don't have any magnolia background images (methinks I'll have to put this on my wish list), but I do have some lovely Tilda's, I thought I'd use some beautiful floral paper from my W&M collection, so that it looks as if my Tilda is sitting in a floral garden.  Here's my little card...

Now ain't my little Tilda cute?  She even has a flower in her hat!  I then added some gorgeous Lilies on the side to fit in with the theme and tied the bunch together with a ribbon.  Added some pink card candy in the corners.

I decorated in inside of my card to compliment the outside, keeping with the theme.  And here's a side view with a peek of the inside from this angle...

I just love this paper, so soft and feminine so I will definitely be using it again soon...

As it's the end of the weekend, my next crafting session will be over next weekend if I don't get a chance to play one evening this week.  Until then, thanks for your visits and happy crafting!
