Tilda With Cherries at Just Magnolia and WINNER and SWEET STUFF!!!
A very happy Sunday to everyone!! I hope your weekend has been a fun and productive one...and that you are looking forward to a marvelous week!! Gosh, it is so difficult to believe that the year is moving so rapidly...in just a blink of an eye it is autumn with the Christmas holidays not that far behind!!!
This week at Just Magnolia we were asked to follow a fun and delightful sketch designed by the fun, delightful AND talented Dawny. I hope you will come on over to Just Magnolia and have a peek at the gorgeous DT Sample Cards and will decide to play along with us this week since we are sponsored by All That Scraps and they are offering the lucky winner any C.C. Designs stamp set of their choice!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI and Bazzill, and the DP is Webster's Pages Sweet As Cherry Pie with a touch of PTI dots. All major panels were machine stitched. Little Tilda With Cherries in a basket from the new Autumn Collection was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I looked for her over at Magnolia-licious and couldn't find her but several cherry related stamps are in stock right now. To accentuate the lovely papers I added several little white flowers to the left side and made a horizontal with Jute String Red to tie on the little cherry charm. For the right side I used Red Chandelier Glass Garland as "cherries", adding individual leaves from the Moss Green Leaves trim. For the floral treatment I used a couple of white cherry blossoms, more small white flowers and individual leaves cut from the trim.
For the first panel on the inside I used more of the jute string, adding a single flower and leaves. The jotting panel is a combination of nesties to which I continued the cherry garland idea.
I hope you like my little creation and will let me know what you think of her!! Also, remember, we would love to have you join us over at Just Magnolia. So grab your favorite Maggie and show us your interpretation of Dawny's sketch!!
