I have several birthday cards to make this month--four of them I think...yikes! So here's one down... and three to go (gulp).
This is the wonderful sketch that I used for this card. This was created by Heather for the Challenge #38 at Basic Grey Challenges.
I've used 2 gorgeous DP's from the Basic Grey Indian Summer Collection: Milkweed and Maple Sugar. I love the design on the Milkweed paper and I was sorry that I had to cover it up for the front of the card. I decided to use the rest of the paper for the inside of my card so you can see the design better there (see below).
This adorable Tilda is called Celebration Tilda. She is a special edition Tilda made especially for Crea Duymelot Shop in the Nederlands. You can only get the stamp there. My friend Maz, gave me the heads up on this and I just couldn't resist her. She is very appropriately named as you can use her on a card to celebrate any occasion--very versatile.
I've made her an auburn or red-haired Tilda to match the colour scheme of the DP's. I think this is the first time I've used that hair colour on Tilda--at least purposely...LOL.
A few other challenges that I am entering with this card: (all having to do with flowers...hee hee...I can see that everybody is just so ready for spring!)
Magnolia Down Under - Challenge #85 - Flower Power
Simon Says Stamps - No cook recipe challenge - 1 image, 2 patterned papers (2 from the Basic Grey Indian Summer Collection), 3 different types of embellishments (flowers, ribbon and pearls).

Here's the inside of the card. I've kept it very simple so you can see the DP design. See, isn't that paper gorgeous?
And here's a close up for the flowers I made--not that you really need a close-up shot, as you can click once, and then again, on the picture above to blow it up if you want a closer look...LOL. But I thought it would me a nicer layout of this posting.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I very much appreciate your visit.
