SWEET STUFF and Tilda Picks Flowers at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge
Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you have all had a delightful week and are ready for a fun and exciting weekend!
This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are being hosted by the super talented and inspirational Jacqui of Cat's Whiskers who has given us the fun theme of FRIENDS! So I hope you will come on over to the challenge and have a peek at the lovely cards this week and decide to play along with us. There are two very nice prizes this week--one is from Crafts U Love and the other is from The Ribbon Girl. Both of the prizes are fabulous this week!!!!
For my DT Sample card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting. The DP is from the Lilac Mist Paper Stack by Wild Rose Studio and all background panels are machine stitched. I used little Tilda Holding Egg Basket which is available over at Magnolia-licious. I changed her eggs to purple flowers...lol...She was colored with Copics, adding some Stickles to her hairbow and to the lace on her dress and cutting her out with triple Nesties. I haven't usually colored her shoes to match her dress....but my wonderful friend Gunilla in Sweden told me that she was amazed that Americans usually color Tilda's shoes in browns and grays because the little girls in Sweden want their shoes to match their dresses!!! So these purple boots are for Gunilla!!! Smiles!!! For the horizontal I used a gorgeous Guipure Lace from Wild Orchid Crafts along with some organza and a satin ribbon bow to anchor a gold heart charm. For the base of the left side floral treatment I used a sweet Paper Doily which I folded for more dimension. The lovely flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts : 40mm Trellis Rose, 35mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Wild Rose, Hip Rosebuds, and Aster Daisies. You can see that I added another Aster Daisy to Tilda's little basket. To finish the front I used some WOC Self-Adhesive Pearls and a couple of lavender organza butterflies.
The first panel on the inside repeats the design from the front using more of the WOC Guipure Lace. I also used a Magnolia You Are My Best Friend which I cut out, embossed, and chalk stenciled with a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner adding a couple of Pearls. For the jotting panel I used another Doily, triple Nesties, and a tiny lavender satin bow.
