Peachy Tilda sending Sweet Hellos

I made this card for a rainee over at the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group using several challenges.

I used Peach Tilda for my image and some papers from a Creative Keepsakes kit that I purchased at a show over the summer. The colors are pinks, blues, peaches and creams – these are definitely fruity colors and perfect for the Charimsa challenge.

DSC01591Following the sketch at Midnight Madness I used my Cricut Storybook cartridge to make the swirls at the top of the card and added a few half pearls. I added a pink ribbon behind the mat that Tilda is standing on.  For my favorite coloring medium I used Copics – I just love these things!! Here is a close up of Miss Tilda.

DSC01592 The inside of the card uses the same papers and a couple more swirls.

DSC01593 I alternated the matting on the inside between the polka dots and the stripes.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.

Until next time,
