Tilda with Lace Jeans...

Good morning and a wonderful Sunday to you all... it's 8.26am as I type this post and there is heavy mist outside. I have the window slightly open and the cool breeze and smell of the ocean is just wonderful... Hope you all have a super day!

I made a card late afternoon, early evening with my new Tilda with Lace Jeans which arrived from 7 Kids College Fund.  I don't use purple/lilac that often, but the Fairy Flora 6x6 paper pad I received from Crafty Emma's Store is just filled with the most beautiful colours and designs.  I am going to have such fun playing with these.

So, here is my little creation for your enjoyment and mine.  Lots to type, so please bear with me...  My regulars will know that I am trying to master the vintagey/chic look, so I bought myself one of those distressing tools from our local The Scrapbook Shop (High Street) and I just hope I've done it justice.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
* Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Use an old stamp (the corner stamps and music sheet are old but have NEVER been used)
* By the Cute and Girly - Anything Goes
* Magnolia Down Under - Your Favourite Things (the new die from Marianne Designs is an absolute fave, but then so is everything else
* Just Magnolia and hAnglar stAnglar - Make It Lacey (my new crocheted lace)


And here is a side view, so that you can get a glimpse of the inside too.  Believe it or not, but I have used 3 different shades of lilac for my bow. Tilda has been coloured with Copics. The heart-shaped pearls are also from Crafty Emma's Store.

Thanks so much for popping by, I appreciate all comments, so don't be shy!  Going to make another cuppa coffee, so I'll catch up with you all later, hugs Sharon x
