Tilda with Braid at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge


Woohooo!! It's Friday and a very happy Friday to each of you!!I hope you have all had a great week and are looking forward to a wonderful weekend!! I have been so inundated with paperwork but hopefully I am seeing the end...or at least close to the end.

Today is our new challenge at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and I would love for you to join in with us this week. We have been challenged by the magnificently talented DawnyP,who is hosting this week, to show some DISTRESSING. I can share with you when I hear that challenge that I am both distressed and stressed out because I have no idea how to DISTRESS!!! But come on over and show us your distressing...We can't wait to see you there with your lovely creations!! There are lovely surprises up for grabs this week!!! We would love for you to have a peek at all of the magnificent DT Sample cards/projects over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge...so come on over!!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting,the DP is from the 25 Days of Christmas Pad by Simple Stories, and all panels are machine stitched, this time with black. All background panels were are also distressed with Red Brick VersaMagic. I stamped the darling little Tilda With Braid onto Cryogen White, colored her with Copics, adding a bit of DI Old Paper for the Stempelglede flourishes around her, and cutting her out with double Nesties. This little cutie is from Magnolia-licious but I don't see her in the shop right now! She is one of my very favorites because of the long dress. I'm sure if you contact Diana at the Magnolia-licious shop that she will try to get her for you! For the horizontal I used some double sided satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow. All of the floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1 1/2" Trellis Rose , 1 3/8" Trellis Roses, 1" Wild Roses, Cherry Blossom, Aster Daisies, all resting on Holly Leaves. To finish the front I used WOC Self-Adhesive Black Pearls.



The inside is very simple because I wanted as much of the cute DP to show as possible...I merely added some satin bows with Christmas dangle charms.

Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope you will want to come by for a visit often!! It is always such a joy to know that you were here! Have a great weekend and I will be back real soon!! And Sunday there is another wonderful surprise at SUNDAY SENSATIONS!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs for YOU!!!

What a beautifull card! I really like the way you also embellished the inside of the card, it makes it look like a real work of art. Great job!

Caroljenks said...

OMGness Jacque this is just stunning! I know I say they about all of your cards but this has to be one of my favs so far!!!
It's those flowers you have used - they look absolutely gorgeous - and it's not the flowers themselves cos I can guarantee they would not have looked that good if I'd used them ;)

Beautiful card designs you have a great talent with this. It is a shame you can't buy such unique and special handmade cards on the high street. I never really understand why?
