Tilda in the Garden at Friday Sketchers #137!!
Hello, everyone and a very happy Friday evening to you!! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to a marvelous weekend! Today was my first day OUT!!! Yipppppeeeee...I went to see my Mom who is in a Life Care Center and enjoyed those hugs!! Gosh, it was great just seeing anyone!!! If I ever see one more snowflake it will be way too many!!
This week at Friday Sketchers #137 we are being hosted by Janneke of the Netherlands who has provided a very fun sketch for us to use. I hope you will pop over and join with us so we can see your interpretation of the sketch. A very nice prize is being given by our week's sponsor, Tickled Pink Stamps.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and the DP is a special gift to me from the very talented and sweet Gunilla of Sweden. It is Mina Vänner Paula 5,7,8 by Maja Design. I just love these papers!!! All major panels were machine stitched. For the horizontal I used 7/8" Old Willow Organza with a double flat bow. The little darling Tilda in the Garden from the new You Are So Special Collection which are right now on pre-order at Magnolia-licious was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a touch of Stickles for the trim and flowers and Spica Gold for the shoe buckles, and cut out with Nesties....Have you noticed how many times little Tilda gets her shoes on the wrong feet....tooooo cute!!!! The floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts using Cherry Blossom Stem Flowers. To finish the front I added a copper Special Day tag, a Melissa Frances ornament, and parts of a pearl flourish.
Edited to ADD: Oh my goodness, I had 2 emails already asking me about the lace which I forgot to mention...sigh...Sorry!!! That is hand-crocheted lace made by my grandmother about 50-60 years ago and was on an old tablecloth which was no longer useable...so no better place to use it than on one of my cards!!! Right??? Thanks to those who asked me!!!!
The inside is very simple with the addition of complete pearl flourishes on each panel and knotted organza ribbon...
I hope you decide to join us over at Friday Sketchers this week! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
