Tilda Plays The Lavender Heart Strings for Friday Sketchers AND Really Reasonable Ribbon AND WINNER AND SWEET STUFF!!
Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are having a most magnificent weekend! My weekend is GREAT...I am awake!! Monday through Friday with the radiation I am so sleepy and lethargic, I don't even recognize myself...I don't feel sick or anything...just totally OUT OF IT!!! But beginning on Saturday morning I am almost like my regular self...Gosh, only 5-6 more weeks of this craziness then it's Jacque bar the door!!! LOL
This week at Friday Sketchers we are hosted by the magnificently talented and creative Carole from England who designed a magnificently fun sketch for the Design Team to use for our sample cards and we all hope that you will jump on over and join in with us this week!! There is a very nice prize from Motivet for some lucky winner this week!! Please check out the blogs of the other Sassy Sketcher girls:
Bea, Carole, Claudia, Jeanette, Tanja
Also today is my first posting at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so I hope you will also wander over there and see what's happening and become a follower so you don't miss any of the fantastic projects that are made each day.
For my card, I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is Bazzill and silver metallic CS, and the DP is from the Lilac Avenue Collection by Kaisercraft. The major panels are machine stitched. I stamped the darling Tilda With Violin on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics, adding Diamond Stickles to the feather wings and some Spica to the violin. She was grounded with a bit of Ultra Fine Koala Gray Flower Soft. This little sweetie was a special gift to many of us from Diana at Magnolia-licious and although I do not see her in stock, she will perhaps be coming out in a future collection. The horizontals are Sheer Woven Rosettes Lavender and Totally Twill Delphinium. Tilda was propped up on round and scalloped round nesties. Rather than the tag in the sketch, I rolled a piece of sheet music and tied it with Flower Soft 2MM Lilac Silk Ribbon . To finish the front of the card, I added an Iris Organza bow made with a Bow-Easy and trimmed with Pearls Pearl.
For the inside of the card I used pearl accent flourishes and a flat organza bow with pearls on the first panel. For the jotting panel I used another nestie set with a flat flower with pearl and twisted twill. Thanks, Claudia for the wonderful surprise!!
To match the card, I decorated a round papier mache box, painting it first with white platinum pearl acrylic paint. I used the rosette trim around the sides along with the twill ribbon, accenting the lid with pearls. For the top, all decoration is resting on a nestie base, adding lavender wild roses, a few pearl sprigs, a matching pearl-trimmed organza bow, and an organza butterfly. To give a touch of dimension to the wild roses I added a bit of Lilac Flower Soft. Sorry that the colors in the close up side view photos is not really accurate but thought you might want to see anyway...smile
And now for the WINNER of the Magnolia/Pink Tote SWEET STUFF...

Although I was not able to participate this week, I would also like to invite you over to see the magnificent Sample Cards made by the DT at Just Magnolia. This week the request was to use acetate in one way or another on the card. We would love for you to join with us this week and show us your use of acetate and perhaps you can win the $30 voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
