Tilda With Three Flowers

 

I wanted to try something different so I chose to make the Twisted Easel fold card.  I really like how it makes up.  And I wanted someone very special to be on the card front so I chose Tilda with Three Flowers. I chose one of my favorite color combinations to use on Tilda (shades of blue & yellow).  I think she looks so cute with the scarf on her head, some sparkle on her dress. And a little sparkle in her eyes.  Plus I even used paper that gave Tilda more sparkle.  Its called Cryogen Iridescent.  You can really see the sparkle on the close up view.

Recipe for this card:  Tilda was colored with Prisma pencils and Copic markers. I used the large oval nestibility to pop up up Tilda.  Flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Butterfly punch & Floral Bed Deep Edge Punch by Martha Stewart.  And double ruffle ribbon from Ribbons & Bows Oh My (RABOM).  Pattern paper from stash.

I entered this card in the following challenges:

   Kaboodle Doodles – Fold new to me or rarely used.

   Tuesday Throwdown – 3-D (pop-it-up)

   Magnolia Stamp Lovers – Pastel

   Whoopsi Daisy – Someone Special

   Flutter by Wednesday – Open Challenge

 

Have a nice day!  Fran
