Tilda with Rose

Happy Monday!! Told ya I'd be back today!! And I have a Tilda card using an image I've never inked up before.....horrors!!

Wow are my colors off, I just noticed!! Well this is Pink Tilda with Rose....& she is one of many stamps I received about a year ago from one of my blog readers, Elaine. I am forever grateful to her for sending me so many goodies....& hey, I haven't heard from her in a while!! Elaine, if you're out there, drop me a line!!!

Anyway, Tilda is colored with Prismas....& I paper pieced her dress, so really there wasn't that much coloring to be done!! The papers are SU's Rose Red (which isn't looking very Rose Reddish in my photos!!) & K&Company Madeline. I distressed all the edges, using my distress tool & Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.....the butterfly is actually cut out from one of the pieces of paper in the Madeline pad...& I added Star Dust Stickles to the edges. I also added Stickles to the rose she is holding....her wings.....her dress edging....& to the cluster of flowers in the corner. Lots of sparkle on this one :)

Sorry for the cruddy photos....Tilda's looking a bit wan in these pictures!! She needs a tan!!

The butterfly was the perfect size....I added 3 half pearls to the center....

And the lovely array of flowers! I love the pearls everyone has been using .....I don't know where everyone is getting theirs but I am cheap & bought a big whole thing of them at Michael's for $2.99!! They will last me a very long time (especially considering I've only been making a card a week, lol)

Well I am off to get ready for Matthew's first baseball game tonight. I went & got cleats today....& the socks....& the gloves.....nothing like waiting till the last minute....& good grief nobody told me when I signed him up that I would have to buy all this "stuff". Of course, the only thing he really NEEDED....that were REQUIRED....were the pants. But apparently you can't play good baseball if you're not dressed properly with all of the accessories!!!!!

Hi Michelle, this card is so sweet. I have been tossing around the idea of buying it. My Mom loves yellow roses, and I was thinking it would be pretty that way too. So I guess I will have to eventually take the plunge. Great work, blessings to you, Rea
