The NON-Bridesmaid Tilda at Friday Sketchers #111
A very happy Friday to Everyone!! I hope you have all had a magnificent week!! Mine was wonderful! The oncologist called on Wednesday and told me that all of the tests that I went through last week showed NOT a single cell of recurring malignancy after the chemo!!! That was tremendous news...My first reaction was, so now I don't have to go through radiation!!!! WRONG!! I will have to be tattooed and enjoy 7-9 weeks of whole breast radiation soon. I can hardly wait for the glowing to begin...HAHA!! AND...my hair is starting to grow!!! It is already about a 1/2 inch long!!! Hey!!! It's not a ponytail yet but anything is an improvement...I think,......smiles
Today at Friday Sketchers we are being hosted by the marvelously talented and creative Janneke from the Netherlands who has provided us with a fun and challenging sketch. There is also a wonderful prize from Digi Doodle Shop so I hope you will come over and play along with us using Janneke's marvelous sketch!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI Hawaiian Shores and Scarlet Jewel, the DP is all from the Kaisercraft Utopia Collection. All background panels were machine stitched. I also used Bridesmaid Tilda from the Wedding Collection at Magnolia-licious and stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics....adding a bit of Diamond Stickles to her wings, Burgundy Stickles to the flowers, and Diamond Glaze to her little shoes. To ground her I used Sage Ultra Fine Flower Soft. You can see that this is certainly not a wedding card, but rather points out the many uses for so many of the Maggie stamps...she could be used for so many occasions and events depending upon the colors you use for her....Valentines Day, Mother's Day, Thank You, and tons of others!! AND she is available now at Diana's shop!! For the vertical I used a wide stitched turquoise grosgrain ribbon. I also used a couple of antiqued brass metal pieces--a cornerpiece and a frame for the required sentiment which was computer generated using Papyrus font. The frame reminded me of a gate ornament so I used Moss Green Leaves from the wonderful Really Reasonable Ribbon shop and Stickled burgundy roses from Wild Orchid Crafts to create the climbing rose floral treatment.
The inside of the card is quite simple, using the the same papers and wide grosgrain ribbon as the front, adding bows in Scarlet Jewel satin ribbon from PTI and turquoise banded organza ribbon.
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 Janneke's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
