Tilda in the English Garden at Friday Sketchers #145



Yippeeeee!! And Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you have had a marvelous week and are just awaiting a splendid, fun-filled weekend! For those of you who observe Daylight Savings Time, this is the weekend....so gosh we lose an hour...that means, craft fast!!! lolol

This week at Friday Sketchers I am hosting with a sketch I designed and I certainly would love for you to come over and join in with us for the chance at a great prize from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps!

For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, the matting is all PTI, and the DP is from and old MM paper pad called English Garden--I actually hope my card reminds you of little Tilda in an old English garden...smiles!!! All panels were machine stitched. I used the darling little Tilda with Lace Jeans from Magnolia-licious. Although she does not show in the shop I'm sure she will be available as soon as Diana has the New Butterfly Dreams Collection in-house! It shouldn't be much longer now!! She was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles to the lace, and cut out with triple Nesties. for the horizontal I used a luscious 7/8" Red Satin with Grosgrain Edge, tied it into a bow and dangles a double charm--rose and rose leaf. I wanted lots of miscellaneous flowers so it would look like little Tilda is getting ready to sniff or pick a flower or two. The floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts: Poppy Stem Flowers, Aster Daisies, and Gypsophilia Stem Flowers. The little mini-flower garden at Tilda's feet contains a red star flower from my stash and the garden is grounded with a mixture of Flower Soft.



The inside is VERY simple using the same papers, ribbons, and poppies from the front.

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to visit the Friday Sketchers blog and join in with us this week. Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Bea, Bev, Janneke, Jeanette, Rach, Tanja

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come back often! Tomorrow I will have my Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge posting and then the next day the SUNDAY SENSATIONS posting and the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop so I hope you won't miss any of them!!! It is such a delight to know that you have visited!!! Sending a big hug to each of you!!!

I am only a little jealous of the massive amounts of ribbon you have. You sure do know how to use it!

I LOVE the fronts of both today's and yesterday's cards. the colors are lovely, especially today's garden card!! But I think the bows on the inside are a bit much, but that is just my opinion.
Thanks for sharing as usual. :)
Susan

Sandy said...

Okay, I think you ought to start your own card supply and making studio shop. I love these colors Jacque - so clean and bright and beautiful together. The design is perfect and I smile real big at the bow in Tilda's hair.
Why, if you and Claudia went on the road together, you would definitely draw a packed house!

Jen Monteiro said...

Love it, I especially love the way that you always decorate the inside too. It's so disappointing when you open a gorgeous card and find a plain white inside. That can never happen with one of your cards he he :)
