Pretty in Pink - What's Tilda Cooking Up This Time?

Happy Friday Everyone!
I really am enjoying my card making at the moment and this one was so much fun to make I was actually quite sad when the creating was all over.
I think that Tilda is feeling a little sassy with her Valentines message but you know that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach so I think it fits ;)

As always I used a few challenges to help me with her creation.

Paper Take Weekly had a "Pretty Pink Papertake" theme
Magnolia-licious had a "Pretty in Pink" challenge
Magnolia Down Under had a Valentines theme
Everbody Art had a great sketch
Crafty Creations had a Love/Valentines theme
Belli want to see Hearts
Flutterby wanted Embossing and a Butterfly, Fairy or Angel. Now we know Tilda is an angel but in this image she's hiding her wings but I think it still counts (please Danni! LOL)
Crafty Ann wanted Embossing too
LaLa Lands wanted Fancy Folds so I did an Easel card which I think is perfect to show off this image
Creative Card Crew want you to "Punch It"
Simon Says Stamp want you to "Punch It" too!
Your Next Stamp wanted "Anything That Sparkles"

I took liberty and borrowed the words from Hank Williams Jr but I don't think he'll mind too much. I used Kitchen Tildaand think she looks super cute with her big wooden spoon. As usual I colored her with Copic's and I love the pink shades.
The dp is My Minds Eye Love Nest collection. I embossed the pink background cardstock with the Victoria embossing folder and inked it a little to help show the pattern. The flowers are Prima, the ribbon is American Crafts, the brads are Target and the rhinestones are Queen & Co.
I used the new Hearts border and corner punches from Martha Stewart and I absolutely LOVE how they look.

Sorry for the awful photo.
I covered the bottom of the card with the same dp and added a punched border as a stopper.
Then I printed out the lyrics as my sentiment. I have a message mat further up under the card for your own message.

Here's a close up of my Pretty in Pink Tilda and I hope you like her, she makes me happy just looking at her :)

Awww...she's just darlin' and I'm green with envy. I want this Tilda so badly, but Diane says she won't be back in the store for five weeks or so. You did a great job on this card and I love that you used the chorus from a song as the sentiment! Gina L

Ann Whitfield said...

Absolutely stunning Katie, I'm not surprised that you were disappointed to finish this one, you can tell how much you enjoyed it just by looking at it. I'm so pleased that you made Crafty Ann's one of your challenges. I'm listening to this song as I type this, but sung by Alan Jackson, George Strait and Jimmy Buffett :o)
