Shabby Tilda

Hello friends,

It is time for the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS
CHALLENGE BLOG.

has chosen our INSPIRATION
this time.

Here is her picture:

THINK SPRING

 The buds on 'my' Magnolia Tree
have been formed for some time now.
The weather is so mild.

My entry for the CHALLENGE
is "Tilda Loves Flowers" #280
from the 
"Sweet Crazy Love Collection".
Not only is she in stock; she is
ON SALE for 10% off right now!

Here she is in all her glory:

I have used SU Very Vanilla card stock,
for the card, one of the layers, wreath
and butterflies.
The two Design Papers are also
from SU if I remember correctly.
My new die :o) is from
and is called CATALINA WREATH
and is made by Memory Box.
The butterfly punch is from MS.


I used SU Dazzling Diamonds
around the edge of all butterflies 
and also all the little dots
from the flower bouquet.
I wasn't sure if they were supposed to
be Babys Breath or not? Thinking they were,
I used my white Sharpie pen and put dots
in them all and added the 'bling'

For the first time I used the Pearl Pen.
I didn't have anything to put on the butterflies.
I DID practice making large pearls 
and the pen was awesome.
However when putting tiny ones on
my card - of course they didn't turn
out as well as I wanted LOL

I used my Zutter tool and REALLY
sliced up all my paper.
Then used Tim Holtz 
Vintage Photo Distress Ink on all the
coloured card stock.
I used his Tattered Rose ink on
all the vanilla pieces.
After cutting out my die cut I cut it
in half and used the two pieces
behind Tilda.

Here is the inside:

Sure looks like I put that Spellbinder
Die on an angle doesn't it!!
I didn't
 notice it till I saw the picture!
The new MB die is whole this time
and there is one teeny butterfly.
The writing space is very simple. 

Hope you like my try at the
INSPIRATION this time.

Many thanks for taking a peek
at my work. I love to read your
comments. They make my day.

Hugs,
Candy

Oh Candy, what a gorgeous card. You do the shabby chick very well--terrific distressing work. I have yet to stamp this Tilda--love the way you've coloured her. I like the simple layout to focus on Tilda and that gorgeous die cut. That wreath is gorgeous and popular. One day it was there in the store and the next it is gone..LOL.
