Happy Valentine's Day from Tilda




Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday :) Well, after the thirty or so inches of snow we received over the weekend we are now expecting an extra 10-17 inches on top of that. Ugh! I've never minded winter too much, but this one is changing my mind :) I'm so ready for spring. I hope wherever you are you are staying warm and safe (the roads here are just terrible). Luckily, the office is closed today so I don't have to venture out in the ickiness.

For my card today, I decided to use this adorable Magnolia image. I really think this is one of my favorites. It's called "Tilda With Rose" and you can get it right HERE. I colored the image with my copics (R89 and R85 for the rose, R81, 83, 85, and 89 for her dress, E33, 35, 37 for her hair) and then added Diamond Stickles to the bow in her hair, her wings, and to the rose. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, and Rose Red). The design paper is from DCWV's Rustic Stack (love this paper!). I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added pink pearls from Michael's. I added pink silk ribbon (also from Michael's) and tied the bow using my Bow Easy. I added a heart charm to dress up the bow a little bit. Finally, I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for a finishing touch. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp that I got from Michael's. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I have tons more Valentine's projects to make before the end of the week (nothing like waiting until the last minute :)) so I'm off to get busy. Hope you all have a wonderful day and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by.

Big Hugs, Christine :)
