Tilda in Pink

Happy Friday! Woohoo weekend here I come. They're never long enough for me...LOL. Anyway I have a new card to show you. This is a birthday card...which to be more exact is actually a belated birthday card! I am sooo... good at sending those out--I've got it down to an art...LOL.






I love this image of Tilda with Hawaii Flower, from Magnolia's Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. She's one of my faves. I have sooo... many favorites...LOL.

She's available from Magnolia-licious on-line store--definitely my favorite store to buy anything and everything Magnolia. And to top it off, Diana gives excellent service.

I've coloured Tilda with my coloured pencils.


I've made this into a shaped easel card. The shape is from a Go Kreate die set I bought on-line from the UK. They have gorgeous-shape dies, but boy they sure are expensive. Haven't been able to find a store in North America that sells them.



Here are a few challenges that I am entering:

Basic Grey - Challenge 53 - Pink and Brown (One of the DP's I am using is Basic Grey Pattern Paper eva/sterling.)
Flutter By Wednesday - Challenge #173 - Open
