Tilda Sings Happily for Just Magnolia
GOSH!! Isn't life just the best!!!! A very happy Saturday to each of you and let's have a marvelous weekend!!! My sincere thanks to each of you for making today and everyday such special ones!!!
It is such a joy to post my DT Sample Card for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge Blog because we are using a sketch by one of my true artistic inspirations, the inimitably talented and creative Bev Rochester. I hope that all of you Maggie Lovers will join with us this week because I would just love to see your interpretation of Bev's magical sketch. And as usual there is a very outstanding prize for some lucky participant--this time the prize is given by All That Scraps...so won't you come over and join with us this week!?!?
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is PTI Sweet Blush and SU Wild Wasabi, and the DP is PTI Dots and a Melissa Frances which supports Breast Cancer research and awareness....kinda appropriate, don't you think?? Big smile here!!!! The background panels are machine stitched. I used the absolutely precious Singing Tilda which is now available at Magnolia-licious. Even though my Tilda is singing out words of joy at completing my chemo regimen, she could just as well be belting out tunes for any occasion or event!!!! She was stamped twice on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. One image was cut out and propped up for dimension. After coloring, her dress was highlighted with a coating of Prisma Glitter; the mic was colored with a Silver Spica. Her necklace and earrings are dots from a cream Viva Pearl Pen. The green horizontal is punched with a MS punch and then topped with the dotted Sweet Blush satin ribbon by PTI. The floral treatment is a collection of hand crocheted flowers and leaves made by Karen Epps to which I added rhinestones to match the corner gems.
The inside of the card is quite simple...just adding a couple of pink heart doilies, more bows, a few rhinestones, and another of the lovely Epps flowers and leaves on the jotting spot.
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join us at Just Magnolia this week!! Please drop over and see the absolutely lovely DT sample cards! They are indeed breathtaking and are a real tribute to Bev and the marvelous sketch she gave us this week.
Thank you so much for coming by to see me today and I hope you will return again often! Your visits have truly been the very inspiration which has motivated me to create and to, in turn, bring happiness to each of you!! Enjoy your weekend and hopefully it will be filled with many smiles and much happiness... Maggie Hugs for all!!!
