Tilda with Hawaii Flower

Hello friends... I made a cute little birthday card for a crafty friend of mine and thought I'd showcase it this evening.  I've used Tilda with Hawaii Flower for the first time, ain't she sweet?  I received quite a few Maggie stamps that I haven't inked up yet, but now that I feel like stamping and playing again, you'll be seeing them soon.


For this card I used the lovely sketch from Simply Magnolia's challenge blog and will be entering it into their challenge.  My stunning designer paper is Wild Rose Studio's Lilac Mist paper back, purchased from Crafty Emma's Store.  There are some really stunning sheets for you to play with.  The craft candy was also purchased from Emma's Store.  The stunning scalloped card was a purchase from Little Claire Designs.  I am soooo happy with this purchase.

I think this sentiment is one of LOTV's. Have you also noticed, I am using a SWIRL for the first time... woohooo... I was complaining to my friend Paola the other evening that I don't have any swirls, when my eye fell onto a gorgeous Marianne Design Die set and lo and behold, there were 2 swirls in the pack.  Funny how your eye just focuses on one thing hey!  Maybe you should look at your things a bit closely now, you may be surprised at what you will find...lol

Here's a final pic for you to look at... you'll notice that I kept the inside very simple this time... Loved using my MS Scallop Dot punch again.

I really had such fun making this card. The colour combination was just so perfect.  Thanks so much for popping by and only 2 more days until the weekend....yayyyy!!!

Warm greetings from a cold and wet Cape Town, hugs Sharon x 

p.s. A suggestion:  Next time you post a link, why not insert a link to the Town you live in, so that we can all see what your part of the world looks like... should be FUN!
