Girls just wanna have fun - Guest DT Card

Hello! Happy Tuesday.

Woo-hoo...I have been given a Guest DT spot this week at Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog. This is my card.

This is their Challenge #51 and their theme is '1 for the Kids'--make a card/project for a child or teenager. They also have a fab tutorial on a Kids Tear-Off Bookmark Card. Click here to see the tutorial and also the awesome cards/projects from the gals of their Designer Team and other Guest DT's to inspire you to create something and join them in their challenge.

I have never made a bookmark card before, so I decided to give this a try.

A close-up of Tilda Playing Hopscotch on the front of my card. I have coloured her with coloured pencils with a little help from my markers for the face and skin. This Tilda is from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011 from Magnolia.

Opening the card, you will see first the back of the bookmark.

then the full view of the inside of the card.

This image is of Volleyball Tilda and she is from the Winner Takes It All Collection 2011.

The stamp for this Tilda and the other Magnolia images are available at Magnolia-licious on-line store, the place for anything and everything Magnolia and Diana gives you the best of services.

For the bookmark, I have use 2 mini images: Mini Rollerskate Tilda (from the Mini Winner Takes All Collection 2011) and Mini Tilda with Kite (from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011).

If you look closely you can probably see the perforation in the fold underneath. I made this with a small tool, Recollections perforating rotary cutter, which I bought from Michaels.
