Tilda Relaxing In Flowers

Hi thank you for stopping by.
Can you imagine my absolute suprise to find out  that my winter card of Edwin and Tilda skating had won the Double Dutch challenge. Pop over there and have a look at the others they are fabulous. Thank you so much to the team for choosing it!!!

I'm entering this card in two challenges tonight.
The first one is:
Roses on Paper /Belles & Whistles combo challenge 30,  to use the following sketch.

The second one is:

Just Magnolia Challenge, to put hearts and flowers with a Magnolia image

I made the roses from punched shapes and thought you might like to see them a little closer. I would have normally used green leaves but as it wasn't on the card I decided to throw caution to the wind and use this striped paper, hey ho hope it worked. I was going to use Edwin but didn't have a romantic one, and after quite a few goes at trying to alter one I gave up and used this Tilda instead. As I stamped her on the hessian type paper I thought it looked better as a line drawing.

  •  Card Ingredients:
  • 15x15cm base card, matts and  the red paper for the roses from The Paper Mill
  • Papermania colossal pack Love
  • Hessian paper Bo Bunny Back to Basics
  • Leaves and caylix HOTP paper
  • Tilda laying in the flowers Magnolia stamp
  • Momento cocoa ink
  • Punches:
  • Woodware daisy, yellow set, for caylix ( just cut curves away make them pointed).
  • A cheap, no make half inch balloon punch for petals
  • Carl Craft leaf punch
  • Friskas pliers heart punch
Thank you so much for looking have a good evening.
Love Cherie  //*.*\\
