Tilda Goes To The Next Level



Happy Sunday everyone! It is a dreary rainy day here so a great kick back day for doing not much of anything!! Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to write me such sweet notes over the past week!!


To brighten my day I wanted to make a card using the sketch for The Next Level where Madge and Dawn bring so many tips and hints, instruct so ably, and challenge us to push ourselves outside of the box. If you haven't visited their blog site, I urge you to drop by and see what's happening over there. I'm sure you will find lots of things of great benefit, some freebies, and some fun, all at the same time!

I used Bazzill CS for the base and the remainder of the card is all from the new Basic Grey Lemonade paper pack...that even sounds yummy, doesn't it? Little Tilda With Flower is from the Spring/Summer Collection 2008 and is available at Magnolia-licious. As you can tell, I kept very closely to the sketch, adding ribbons in coordinating colors, a gold heart button for the embellishment, a sweet sentiment in the upper left to which I added a matching flower to the one Tilda is holding, circled the airbrushed paper doilies with flowers, and finally added 3 burgundy pearls to the upper right corner...

And a very simple inside:


Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will let us know what you think of her. Take care and be safe...Hugs!!

Sorry about your damp weather we have the complete opposite and i've even been brave enough to take my t.shirt off. We have a private garden other than next door but they are away until tonight.. I've made nothing myself today but have put verses in lots of my cards ready to sell..

So pretty! The ring of flowers reminds me of a midsummer wreath, which the swedish girls wear to celebrate midsummer, only a few weeks ago! Another awesome interpretation of a sketch, Jacque!!

That is a really cute card Jacque. We have not had rain in ever so long and today I was birthday shopping for my daughter and while I was in the store there was a major deluge! I was so wet when I got to my car I wished I had a towel!!! Hair wet, shirt wet clear through, pants wet clear to underwear. Of course the AC was on when I turned the car on(had had it on before going in) and I got a chill like you wouldn't believe~~ LOL I was quite a sight and still had places to go. I just fluffed up my hair and since my clothes were dark (having just come from Church) I just pretended everything was hunky dory and went on with my shopping -- sans AC. LOL We needed the rain though so I am happy about it.

Jacque, stunning card. Wonderful colours and as always your colouring is awesome. Love all the embelishments--especially those 3 brads in descending sizes. Never thought of that--will use the idea on my own cards myself. Thanks.
the inside of your card is gorgeous also.

Hugs.

Laurel said...

Ohh so very pretty! Jacque, I just love how you did the doily and the circle of flowers. Tilda is just her darling self may I ask which colors you use for her hair? I never seem to find the right mix for golden blond like yours. hugs
