Thinking sweet Thoughts of You

This is the name of this cutie Tilda card.. cause that's what she's doing.. lying down on her tummy, with her head on her handsand some pretty colourful flowers surrounding her. She must be in a beautiful place.. she's sooo calm and serene, don't you think? :)

I just loved putting together this card. The sketch at Just Magnolia inspired me to use one of the images I had coloured last Sunday at home. Thanks Bev for the lovely challenge. Papertake Weekly's spots and stripes challenge inspired my use of these Papers from Basic Grey.

For some extra embellishments I used Dew drops and some ricrac that coordinated with the papers and general layout. On top of it I used a Prima Hydrangea and a vintage silver button on top. I had to cut off the small piece it had to be sewn from. I did this with sciccors, and then chopped off the last bit with a craft knife.

A side-view of the card.

The swirls are hand-doodled by myself. I used a black fine tipped permanent marker.
The flowers that Tilda is lying on are punched outs from a small flower punch, and at the end I added them some bling with some stickles on the centre.

Finished it off with some half pearls and floral centre kisses around the doodles.

The inside is completed with coordinated paper and cardstock. The top saying is computer generated, and I decorated with gems. The bottom part is punched with a heart- border punch from Fiskars. The flower is from K&Co tin of sentiments and embellishments.I also made a small nestie- cut cardstock, which I left blank for adding a small message to the one who will recieve it.

Tilda wants to thank you for visiting her, and is asking you to leave her a message to know you've been here :)
sincerly we' d love that.. (me and Tilda) and if anyone would like to ask me anything, you'll find my e mail in the profile. You can also leave me a message in the chatbox, and I'll answer you from there if you prefer.

Big hugs to you my blogging friend, and hope you're having a lovely Sunday x
I hope that you give The Good Shepherd permission to take care of You. He will lead you to green pastures.
