Just Magnolia -- Tilda With Hearts



Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :) Hope you are having a wonderful week. It's been busy around here! I may be scarce for the rest of the week after today's posting. My dad is getting remarried on Saturday (we lost my mom almost 4 years ago to ovarian cancer) and I'm so excited for him that he's found someone special. I agreed to do all the place cards for the luncheon so I have to finish those up. I'll try to post at least once before Saturday, then after that, I should be back into my regular schedule.

Okay, onto my card for today :) Our challenge this week over at the new Just Magnolia Challenge Blog was to use pink and green on our cards. I used this week's Sketch Saturday sketch as my layout. I decided to ink up this adorable Tilda With Hearts image. I inked her with Memento Black Ink, stamped her onto PTI cardstock, and colored her with copics. It's hard to see from the picture, but I added some Shimmerz to the hearts. Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Pretty in Pink. I layered Certainly Celery on top of that followed by my design paper from Debbie Mumm. I cut out a piece of cardstock using my new Labels 4 Nestabilities, adhered Tilda to that and to the card base with dimensionals. I used my Martha Stewart Lace Doily border punch on the bottom, then added a ribbon and Blue Moon Heart Charm. Finally, I added Primas for a finishing touch.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll be back soon with another project. Have a wonderful day! :)

Hugs, Christine
