Tilda with an UN-Peony at Friday Sketchers 108
Happy Friday to everyone and thanks so much for dropping by!! The week has been a most eventful (eeeek!!) one and one which has been the very most humbling of the whole chemo experience!!! But EVERYTHING is wonderful now, am feeling GRRRrrrrreat (said like Tony the Tiger), and ready for whatever comes down the road next!!! I hope you all have had a delightful week and are looking forward to a marvelously fun weekend!!
This week at Friday Sketchers 108 we are all treated to a marvelous sketch by the super talented Aud from Norway who is hosting this week. There is a wonderful prize offered by Simon Says Stamp so I hope you will come over and participate along with us so we can see your interpretation of Aud's fun sketch!!
For my DT Sample card I used Bazzill for the base, PTI Enchanted Evening and Melon Berry for all matting, and the DP is from the Tea at Elsie's Collection of Kaisercraft. Little Tilda with Peony from Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I added a bit of Glossy Accents to her little shoes and grounded her with Copic grass and Sage Ultra Fine Flower Soft. I gave her a bouquet of flowers rather than the one peony. For the vertical I embossed the navy DP with the Roses CB folder and lightly sanded for more dimension. All the flowers and the chandelier gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts: the flowers that Tilda is holding, the floral treatment at the bottom, and the flowers securing the top of the flat bow. The ribbon is PTI Satin Melon Berry. You can see that I used the chandelier gems as a channel for the horizontal ribbon.
For the first panel of the inside, I also used the Roses CB folder to emboss the square panels and surrounded them with gathered lace adding a flat satin ribbon bow. For the second panel I used a vertical ribbon with flat bow to hold a leaf charm and added one lone aster to the jotting spot.
I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Aud's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!

Many of you have written to me asking how I present my cards since they are often so dimensional so I wanted to give you a couple of options that work for me. Either I make a presentation envelo-box OR for a much quicker solution I use one of the PTI clear boxes as shown to the left, tying it with a stretchy silver or gold cording. If you have additional questions, please email me.
Thank you so much for your visit and I am hoping that you come back often! I appreciate each of you so much and thank you sincerely for the many lovely comments and your cards and emails of support and concern! May your week be a special one!! Big hugs!!
