Finally.. I get to post this card! I hope Winter will come again soon~!! Winter please do! I find it sooo difficult to keep up with all these lovely challenges in Summer. You have to keep the kids busy, making some time for them and also taking them out almost everyday. When you come back there's a lot of laundry, etc etc... :))
Yesterday we went to swim and I made them a BBQ at the beach as well.
Today I was too tired to take them out, and tomorrow we have a whole day in a Hotel Pool, so we stayed here and watched Night at the Museum 2. I liked it, but I think I prefer the first one.. yet! Cause sometimes I change my mind :) hehe
Any whoo here is my card for today. I made it for Just Magnolia. There was this lovely sketch, and I wanted to play. I used this lovely Tilda, so cute and adorable, don't you think?
When the card was almost finished, I remembered that it HAD to be made 3d! Luckily I had two more images of her, and I coloured the dress and the heart for the second layer, and then only the heart for the third and final layer. Maybe you can see it better in this photo.
I wished the oval folder-embossed panel behind Tilda was more yellowish... but then it was already done.. and I left her that way.
I used quite a lot of distressing and paper tearing in this card, but I love the feel of it. I distressed all panels before gluing; and this I did with my fingernails.
On the inside I did the same, used coordinating papers from the same Basic Grey Lime Rickey pack. The numbers paper is from the Cupcake pack. I added quite some flowers, Prima and embossed flowers, dewdrops, ribbon and pearls, and a computer genenrated message on the inside. I hope you like this Tilda.. she's offering you her Love and her heart.. will you offer her a comment? :) She'd love to hear from you.
