Tilda in the Garden and WINNERS!!!


Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week is going exceptionally well. It has been such lovely weather here that being inside is not at the top of my agenda. But of course today and tomorrow may be TOO hot to do very much outside! Is the weather crazy these days or is it just me??? Gosh, 88 degrees F (31C) is not our typical SPRING!!!!!

My card today is posted over on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog and if you don't have that site in your favorites you are missing out on some really amazing inspiration using all of the products available at Wild Orchid Crafts Shop as well as all of the SNEAK PEEKS of lovelies on the way!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and the DP is from the Summer Breeze Paper Pad by First Edition...I just love all of the glittery papers!!! All background panels were machine stitched. I used the darling little Tilda in the Garden from the You Are So Special Collection which is now available over at Magnolia-licious. I just love that bubble outfit she is wearing and those shoes on the wrong feet just tickle me!!!!! I stamped her on Cryogen White, colored her with Copics adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles, and cut her out with triple Nesties. For the base of the flowers I used Magnolia Doohickey Swirl diecuts. The floral arrangement is ALL by Wild Orchid Crafts in the yummiest shades of browns and peaches: 40mm Trellis Rose, 25mm Open Roses, 20mm Open Roses, 15mm Open Roses, and Aster Daisies. The Heart Shaped Pins, Peach Self-Adhesive Pearls, and lovely Guipure Lace are also from WOC.


On the first inside panel you can get a better glance at the lovely Guipure Lace which I also used on the front of the card. In addition I used a bit of satin ribbon, a bit of swirl, and a couple of heart pins. The second panel is very simple with enough room for a sweet note to someone special!!

I hope you like my little Peach and Brown creation and will let me know what you think of her!!

WINNER WINNER!!! And it's time for Mr Random.Org to make a couple of selections for the Whimsy SWEET STUFF from last week... Sooooooooo...here we go!!

Congratulations to...
