A Sweet Little Tilda at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge
Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope you all had a great week and are settled into a fantastic weekend!
This week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we have been treated to a fun and exciting sketch by Mina. You can flip or rotate the sketch, as long as we can still see the elements of the sketch. You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as the main image on your creation is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar or Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prizes. One of the prizes is from The Ribbon Girl and the other prize is from Crafty Sentiments. Please remember NO back linking, new projects/cards only. The challenge closes next Thursday, March 3.
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting. The DP is from the My Mind's Eye Mabel Paper Pad and all background panels are machine stitched. As much as I really like this DP, the orange and teal certainly jerked me right out of my comfort zone...WHEW!! This darling little Tilda was a Valentine surprise from my dear friend Claudia and I don't think she has been released yet. But isn't she a real cutie---saying give me a hug or I love you this much!!! lol... I'm sure as soon as she is released you will be able to find her at Magnolia-licious. She was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stardust Stickles to the lace, and cut out to sit on the Nellie Snellen Flower diecut. I used 2 widths of dark teal satin ribbon to form the vertical and the horizontal--and a thin teal organza for the loops to anchor the floral treatment from Wild Orchid Crafts: 40mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Wild Roses, 10mm Open Roses, and 6mm Closed Rosebuds. I also added two large pearl pins for a little different texture. To finish the front I added several WOC Pearls.
The inside is more of the same from the front of the card with the addition of some Recollection Glitter Dots to the loop ribbon treatment and to the Nellie Snellen jotting panel.
I hope you like my little card and will decide to join with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge this week. We would love for you to pop over and check out the absolutely gorgeous cards made by the DT this week!!
