Sketch Saturday -- Tilda With Tulips




Hi everyone and Happy Thursday :) I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I have a quick posting for you this morning before I head to work. I decided to ink up this gorgeous Magnolia image, Tilda with Tulips. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink and stamped it onto PTI cardstock. I colored the image with my copics, added some Shimmerz to the Tulips, and then cut the image out. I used this week's sketch over at the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog for my layout. All cardstock is from SU (Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery) and my design paper is from Basic Grey's Porcelin pack. I used my Circle Nestabilities and scalloped circle nesties as well as my scalloped rectangle nestabilities. I used my SU photo corner punch on two of the corners of the card. I also added a pink ribbon and bow and Primas for a finishing touch. What do you think?

In other news, Susana, of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design is having some great sales. The adorable Smirk Stamps are 50% off. Doodlebug Flock is also on sale so make sure to stop by and check it out. Also, make sure to check out Susana's Store Blog, Follow Your Heart today.

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day :)
Hugs, Christine
