Tilda in her Sparkly Shoes




Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here and I cannot wait :) We don't have any exciting plans, but it's nice sometimes to just sit back and relax :) Well, I have another fly by posting for ya as I have a lot going on this morning before I'm in court all day. For my card today, I inked up this brand new Tilda from the winter kit (you can preorder her from Magnolialicious HERE). Isn't she adorable, I just love her :) I colored her with copics, cut her out, then added Martha Stewart glitter to her shoes. I then created my card using SU cardstock (Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink). All my design paper is also from SU. I cut out an oval and a scalloped oval using my nesties and then ran the top oval through the cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing folder. I then mounted the ovals to each other and then to the card base with dimensionals, then added Tilda with dimensionals. I used my SU ticket corner punch on all the corners and added pearls (from Michael's). I added a ribbon (which I tied using my awesome Bow Easy) and then I added Primas and roses (from Wild Orchid Crafts) for a finishing touch. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by. Your lovely comments mean so much to me. Have a wonderful Thursday and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine
