Greetings dear blogfriends... It seems like ages since I've posted another card... Wow, is it good to be home? I'm a real home-bird and love spending time at my craft desk, dabbling with all my lovely crafty stash... listening to Ryan Seacrest on KFM 94.5 in the background... Such a sweetie on Idols hey!
As my 3 new little Tilda's had arrived from 7 Kids College Fund, I couldn't resist stamping them with Momento's Rich Cocoa Ink, purchased from Paola and then colouring them with Copics... So, for the first time on Sharon's Kardz Korner, here is the gorgeous Tilda with Lace Hearts from the You Are So Special collection... It took between 4-6 weeks for these to arrive from the USA... I am not complaining, just damned relieved that they did not get lost along the way...
The base of my card is white cardstock. Onto that I layered some green and then grape coloured cardstock. I thought this combo was stunning and coloured my Tilda accordingly. Cut her out with a Nellie Snellen die, thought this one suited our Tilda perfectly as it looks so lacy. For embellies I've used a gorgeous diamanté buckle, through which I threaded a piece of green ribbon. Used some of my stunning flat-backed pearls, a few flowers and a heart charm.
I made a side-opening card for a change and decorated the inside very plainly by using the same DP as on the front of the card.
You can see that I added some dimension glaze to the hearts to make them pop a bit. And to end off a close up of our little Tilda...
Spring is in the air over at the Magnolia-licious challenge blog and they'd like you to celebrate with them by creating a colour-themed card in GREEN, so I am entering this card into their challenge. I hope Random.org likes this little one... I really had fun making this card.
It's almost weekend and that means I get to play some more... hope you've had a good crafting week... I'll catch up with you all later... hugs Sharon x
p.s. It may be the beginning of Spring in the States, but here in SA and especially Cape Town, we got our first taste of Autumn today... a cool, breezy day... Just wonderful after our recent heatwaves.
