Sweet Tilda


I made this card yesterday following the wonderful (but challenging) sketch by the fabulously talented Mina over on the Just Magnolia Challenge blog this week.  I didnt mean it to turn out so bright in the candy/pastel colours, but it just ended up that way. :) Very girly huh?



I hand stitched the stripey panels, used HOTP papers, MS doily punch, promarkers, and flowers from WOC.

I am entering this card in the below competitions this week:

Just Magnolia - Fab Sketch
Cute Card Thursday - Hearts and Flowers
PaperPlay Challenges - Hearts and Flowers but not Valentine
The Stamp Man - Hearts
The Crafty Pad - Hearts
Paper Sundaes - 2 Toppings - Flowers and Pink

Thanks so much for looking, have a really great week, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

Girly is not "Huh", girly is pretty! I really like the card, there are sooo many lovely details to discover - my favorite is the ribbon, that is pulled through the eyelets. Or the swirl? Or the rhinestones? Or the colouring? Or....

It's so lovely though and I do admire your selfless sacrifice of all those twinkly gemstones too.

Oh wow Alison, beautifull card. love how you have laced the ribbon. I have just come back from Hobbycraft and I very nearly brought that MS lace punch, but it was £17.99 and I think I can get it cheaper on line so resisted the temptation :) That is one awsome sketch and you have done a lovelly job with it. Off now to do some stuff with circles hehe xx
