Tilda With Flowing Hair  


A few weeks back, the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog had a color challenge to use the combination of orange and green.  WHAT???  Eew!  Was kind of my first reaction.  But I am happy to report that it wasn't that bad.  I actually kinda like what I came up with.  My darling didn't have my blog up in time for me to enter the challenge but that's ok, I love him anyway! :o)

This cutie is Tilda with Flowing Hair, colored with SU reinkers.  The dp is K & Co., the raffia is something I've had in my stash f-o-r-e-v-e-r!  The pretty flowers are WOC and Prima.  I cut the leaves using a die I got from SU.  The rhinestones are also SU.

I really love this Tilda image but then again, what Tilda don't I love?  (As my BFF, Jennifer, rolls her eyes in agreement).  hahaha

I have a difficult time with the whole "halo" thing around my images.  Maybe I'll need to invest in some background stamps.  Any suggestions would be more than welcome!

And to finish it out - the inside!  And that, my friends, is my first (almost) entry into a challenge!  hahaha

Thanks for stopping by!  I really appreciate your comments.  I know (believe me, I know) how much easier and quicker it is just to check out a card without leaving a comment.

How funny! I think we all had the same reaction and then, once our cards were done, we realized they actually go very well together! And your card is a perfect example of that!

Cassy, I wonder why they named this particular iamge Tilda with Flowing Hair, as LOTS of Tilda have flowing hair...LOL. Your card is beautiful. Love all the warm colour and Tilda is wonderfully coloured. Terrific job with the stitches.
