Sweetie Tilda at Wild Orchid Challenge
A very happy Monday to each of you!! I hope you have had a delightful weekend and are now starting into a fabulous week. With the amazingly HOT weather here, my garden is suffering because I can't stand it outside long enough to trim roses and check on everything else!! But that's ok...at least I can turn on AC and kick back...lolol
Yippppeeeeee!!! Today is the start of another fortnightly challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge and this time we are thrilled to show you a fabulous sketch by the quintessentially talented and inspirational Bev from All The Things I Love. We would love for you to join in with us using this fun sketch and something from WOC in order to be eligible for the magnificent prize which is always offered by Wild Orchid Crafts. It is FABULOUS for sure!!!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from The Mariposa Stack by DCWV; and all background panels are machine stitched. For the top and bottom horizontal panels I used White Insertion Anglaise Lace topped with Self Adhesive Pearls at each of the eyelet motifs. Gosh!! What would I do without Wild Orchid Crafts?!?!? I used the little darling Sweetie Tilda who is from the brand new SWEET RAINBOW Collection which is now available over at Magnolia-licious. You will also see that the MINI counterparts for this collection are also now available!!! She was stamped on XPress Blending Card and colored with Copics before cutting her out with double Nesties. You can probably detect that I used a few drops of blending solution on a piece of terry and touched it to her dress so that it would look more like georgette...can ya tell?? All of the floral treatment is by Wild Orchid Crafts: 35mm Trellis Rose, Poppy Stem Flowers, and Hip Rosebuds. To finish the bottom swag I added small grosgrain bows to each end and additional Self Adhesive Pearls to soften all of the corners on the front.
I think the paper on the first panel on the inside is so lovely that I didn't want to embellish too much so I added more White Insertion Anglaise Lace, a grosgrain bow, and a silver butterfly charm dangle. For the second panel another horizontal of Lace topped with Self Adhesive Pearls. For the jotting spot I used double Nesties and a FloraDoodle butterfly for a touch of dimension.
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join in with us over at the Wild Orchid Challenge--we would love to see you there! Also I would like to remind you that Wild Orchid Crafts is looking to recruit three talented DT members to join the existing team so if you would like to be considered please pop across to the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog to find out more information and to enter. The call will close at 8pm GMT on 12th June, so you still have time to consider the marvelous opportunity!!!
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon!! Have a great week!! Hugs!!
