Aloha Tilda at Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge



A very happy Wednesday to everyone!! I hope that your week is going exceptionally well and that you are peeking toward the end of the week!! I am down to only 12 more radiation sessions left and I can hardly wait until they are ALL long gone!! BUT I am thinking that my brain is frying at the same time they are burning my other body parts!!! LOL!! Thank heavens for Lidocaine ointment...but somehow that doesn't work for my brain!!! hahaha

I had completely forgotten to post the card I did for the Aloha Challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon--know that there is still time to participate for a nice prize because it doesn't end until August 31...so hurry!!!! And I am telling you that Bonnie has the most amazing shop filled with the most wonderful ribbons and trims as well as other embellies...Have a look HERE and I'm sure you will be amazed too. Her customer service is so commendable as well!!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is The Tropics by Reminisce. All background panels were machine stitched. For the ALOHA subject the very first image I thought about was Hawaii Tilda (which I had never used before) and Hawaii Palm to set the scene. Although both of these images are from the Party and Vacation Collection 2008 from Magnolia-licious, it doesn't look as though either of them are available at the moment. Of course there are so many more cute, cute travel images in the new Bon Voyage Collection...we almost have the entire world covered by now!!!! I stamped the scene on Cryogen White and then stamped Tilda twice on the same type of paper. All were colored with Copics. Tilda was cut out twice and each image was propped up for much dimension and depth. To set the scene for Tilda, I added Sand Ultra Fine Flower Soft for the beach and added a sand dollar and sea shell at her hula dancing tootsies. I found the ALOHA puffed up thing in my stash and had to add it to the scene. The front was completed with a horizontal and matching Bow-Easy bow using beautiful Fuchsia Silk ribbon from RRR, adding a palm tree charm to the bow. For the right corner I added a hibiscus flower, using flat flowers from Crafty Feeling and banana leaves. The front was finished with square fuchsia rhinestones. Doesn't she make you want to dance the hula and sit down to a luau??? smiling!!



The same paper was used on the inside of the card and I attempted to use it so that the fuchsia flowers, palm tree, and pineapple would be evident. On the first panel I merely added another silk bow and a silver orchid on a silver cord. For the second panel I added another bow topped with a palm tree button and a flat flower at the botton of the jotting spot....Fuchsia rhinestones were used on all corners of the inside too!

Remember to come on over to the RRR Challenge Blog and show us your ALOHA card...we would love to see it!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening here and I hope you will come back often!! Hey!!! It's almost time for some SWEET STUFF, isn't it??? YES, it is!!! So maybe by this weekend I can have something put together...smile...I hope the rest of your week is a happy one!!! Be safe and big hugs til we meet again!!!!
