Tilda With Crowfoot (whatever that is)

Happy Thursday everyone. I hope that your respective week has been one with fewer trials and tribulations than mine has been!!

I finally completed this card using the sketch from Stamp With Fun which is a Monday sketch challenge blog. I really like this sketch by Nikki since you have so much space to embellish or use whichever image you might choose. I used Tilda With Crowfoot from the Summer and Sea Collection 2008 which is now available at Magnolia-licious and after looking up "crowfoot" I still don't know what they are...lolol But for this card, my crowfoot is PURPLE!! And I did go strictly by the sketch.

I used Bazzill CS for the base, Prismatics Majestic Purple Dark for the matting, and the rest of the papers are all from the Basic Grey Wisteria Collection. Purple is not my favorite color, but these papers are very rich and yummy. For the front of the card I used the Textile embossing folder for the second panel, and nesties for the top panel. Tilda was colored with Copics, wings are Diamond Stickles, and the crowfoot is emphasized with lavender FlowerSoft. The background was airbrushed with BG000 to pick up the tiny bit of aqua in the DP. I also added a lace strip and woven ribbon for the stripe panel...and believe me I didn't think I would ever find that ribbon with purple AND aqua in it. I finally added primas with purple rhinestones and tiny Wisteria purple brads to the corners and to hold the wee heart with sentiment charm.

The inside is quite simple. The first panel repeats the same textile panel and enclosing it with the same ribbon/lace from the front. The jotting panel is the same CS from the front with a matted nestie and several primas with rhinestones and various leaves/branches by MS.

I hope you will like this little girl and will leave her a note telling her what you think. I do appreciate your coming by to see us here and hope you will want to come back again and again!!

Diana at Magnolia-licious has informed everyone that she has a gazillion stamps in the house NOW...she has also received the Graduation and Student Collection so please shop NOW for the best selection!!

Hi Jacque! Oh my, what a perfectly lovely card. Your Tilda is just soooo sweet dressed in purple with her bouquet of lovely flowers. Beautiful work on the sketch.

Wonderful card! I believe Crowfeet are part of the buttercup family. I like them in purple, the flower soft adds such dimension and texture.
You have such a knack at everything coordinating so beautifully.

Another awesome card, great job!

Jessica G. said...

Gorgeous card! I'm with the you -- the purples in the Wisteria DP make me a fan of the color, too. Maybe it's because they have blue tones??

Great job on the sketch and I love the embellishments, especially that ribbon. The CB texture is perfect, too!

I always wondered what a crowfoot was and glad no one else knows either! Your purples make me want to use them; but them everything you create makes me want to reach for that level of perfection! Absolutely beautiful card!! You were so right about the white paper!!
