Challenge with Tilda

Good morning!

It has been forever since I have played along any of the challenge blogs out in blog-land. I follow several so when I saw this weeks sketch on the Friday Sketcher's blog I was immediately drawn to it and wanted to give it a try.  This is their sketch for this week.

And here is my take on the sketch.

Card Supplies:   Stamps: Magnolia, Gina K - Fanciful Tags
Paper: Gina K - Smokey Slate, Kraft, Ivory,
Innocent Pink, Basic Grey - Porcelain
Ink: Memento, SU
Other: Spellbinder Tags, Pearls, Cord, Eyelets,
Primas, Cuttlebug EF
As you can see I added a bit more to the basic sketch. Hopefully my card won't be tossed out because I did!
I used one of my adorable Magnolia Tilda images that I picked up at the Magnolia-licious store a while ago.
Tilda was colored with copics - R000, R00, R20, E000, E00, E27, E31, E41, E42, E55, E57, E59 and W3.
The papers are Gina K and Basic Grey. My sentiments were stamped on the tags before I tucked them behind the tilted square and can easily be pulled out by who ever receives the card. The tags were cut out with a couple different spellbinders tag dies.
The pink paper Tilda is standing on was embossed with Cuttlebugs Herringbone embossing folder. I embellished the card with pearls and and an assortment of prima flowers.
Now that I am posting the card I wish I would have added a bit of sparkle to Tilda's dress and a coat of crystal lacquer to her shoes. I think I will do that before I mail it out.

I am also going to enter this card in the Paper Pretties challenge this week which is to use pearls, Rhinestones, or glitter dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visits and love to read your comments!
Have a wonderful Day!
