Tilda on Parade

Hi friends!

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to your summer.


It is time once again for our COLOUR CHALLENGE

This month our Design Team Member
 Linda has set the challenges for us :o)

Here is the picture she has shown us for inspiration:



I have used: TILDA WITH FLAG #311

You can find her at Diana's Store  She is in stock right now!


Here is the front of my card:

Tilda has been mounted with 3-D tape.

I have used:
Card Stock - Bazzil White, Real Red and 
Night of Navy from SU.
Also from SU - Red Striped Ribbon, 
Dazzling Diamonds, as well as Real Red ink 
on the white oval.
Sookwang tape, with Glitter Ritz:
Crystal, Fire Red and Western Blue.
Martha Stewart border punch.

Here is a close-up of Tilda:

I distressed the oval and then rubbed a touch
 Real Red ink around the edge.

Here is a picture of the stars:

I punched out the star shapes with SU
large and small star punches.
I then covered the stars with Sookwang
tape and covered each one with 
Glitter Ritz. They have been mounted also
with 3-D tape, a little thicker than what 
I used for Tilda.

Here is the ribbon with bow:

And a quick view of the inside:

It is decorated the same as the front -
with the same oval on the right hand side,
and a few stars on the left.

Please rush over to the Challenge Blog

Hope you have enjoyed my creation today :o)

Candy, what a very delightful card. I love this cute flag-carrying Tilda. Beautifully coloured. Look at her sparkly underdress (or whatever you call it). I especially like her red boots!. Oh good job on the American flag. Love the clean look of the card and the striped ribbon to match the flag.
