Tilda Birthday greeting


Good Evening!

I've created this card for two challenges: a sketch challenge over at Friday Sketchers and a Birthday card for the Just Magnolia challenge.

The sketch at Friday Sketchers is hosted by Carole and I've included her beautiful sketch below!

The card stock and designer paper are from Stampin' Up. I've used a Martha Stewart border punch and some sheer pink ribbon along with a few pink brads on the horizontal band. You'll find machine stitching around the panels since I'm still hooked on sewing!! The Birthday sentiment is from the "Well Scripted" stamp set by Stampin' Up! I just love that these stamps are now available in clear mount!!

On the second version of the card I've added a few wire stems covered with Flower Soft. I colored the white wire with my Copic marker so that I could have green flower stems and then added the tiny "Sweet Pea" Flower Soft material.

The images are colored with Copic markers:
E000, E00, E31, E33, E35, B0000, B21, B23, R00, RV0000, RV00, RV21, 0


Thanks so much for stopping by,
Julie

Hi Julie, both of these cards are just gorgeous! I love the stitching around each of your panels and the flower soft on the stems is utterly divine. You've colored your Tilda's so beautifully and the little brads match perfectly with your dp! That little Tilda is so cute, I just love her expression. Beautiful job...hugs...Barb
