Tilda With Birdcage at Just Magnolia



A very happy and pleasant Saturday to each of you! I hope you are well into a marvelous weekend! It has been so hot here in the mountains that crafting in air conditioning is the joy of the day!! So let's just enjoy each moment of our weekend no matter where we are!!

This week at Just Magnolia the Design Team was challenged to make a "VINTAGE" card and I must share with you that this was VERY difficult for me and I'm not sure I even met the mark of getting creative with Olde World charm. We hope that you will drop over to see the lovely cards the DT has made and will grab one of your Maggies and join in with us this week. Remember that you can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice as long as the main image on your creation is a Magnolia stamp. This will qualify to be in the draw for the fab prize which this week is being offered by The Cutting Cafe. Also please remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only please.

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, SU for matting, and the DP is from 7 Gypsies Victoria paper pack. You can see a bird cage like Tilda is holding at the very right side bottom on the background paper....I think it would have been better to have more of the cage showing but I could not cut the paper that way.....sigh... Little Tilda With Birdcage, available at Magnolia-licious, was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a bit of Spica Silver for the cage. I attempted to age the image with Old Paper Distress Ink. I also used the same ink on the two round paper doilies which were situated to hold the oval Nesties. I used a piece of antique lace and toffee organza ribbon for the horizontal, adding a Bow-Easy bow and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. To complete the front I added a cute parrot charm and copper half pearls to the corners AND to Tilda's Mary Jane shoes. Please let me know what you think! I love hearing from you!!

Note: How about dropping over and checking out the latest Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbons and while you are there drop in on Bonnie's Shop to see the phenomenal selection of ribbons, trims, etc. that she has in stock and that you could win in the challenge!! If you have never visited this shop, you will be AMAZED!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by to see us today and I hope you will come back often! Have a great weekend!! Big hugs for all!!
