This is one of those rare cards that I did just because I wanted to and not because of a Design Team commitment.
I love using my Magnolia stamps and there were a few challenges (19!) this week that just led me towards a new card with sweet Tilda as the star.
Everybody Art wanted Snowflakes
Stamp With Fun also wanted Snowflakes
Roses On Paper wanted Winter
Three Clovers also wanted Winter
Fussy and Fancy wanted Winter too
Stampin B's had a Winter Fun theme and I think the "punny" title makes this card a little fun :)
Stamp Something had a color combo of Blue and White
Basic Grey had a photo inspiration of a beautiful shades of blue room
Die Cuts R Us wanted you to use your Holiday Leftovers
Jacksonbelle wanted Bling!
Practical Scrappers wanted Bling too
Belli wanted Bling as well
Humblepie wanted 2 types of Bling and I used rhinestones and pearls.
Papertake had a great sketch
Tuesday Morning Sketches wanted to see Buttons and Bows
Creative Card Crew wanted to see Distressing
Creative Inspirations Callenge also wanted to see Distressing
Flutterby Wednesdays had an open theme as long as it is a Fairy, Butterfly or Angel
Stamping Vacation had a new Pick 3 challenge. I chose : An image with Wings, At least 1 gem or crystal, Any color you might see in the sky
I chose the super sweet "Love Tilda" but instead of traditional Valentines colors I chose a wintery color scheme to go with the themes from the challenges. I'm sorry I couldn't link her but my regular Magnolia sources don't seem to have her but she's from the Spring 2008 collection.
I colored her with Copic's and added a touch of silver Prismacolor to her wings and shoes.
I used scraps from both the Fruitcake and Eskimo Kisses collections by Basic Grey.
The snowflakes are Emagination punches, punched from American Crafts metallic cardstock. The ribbon is from Michaels and I printed out the sentiment in the Garamouche font.
All the panels are inked with Chalk Ink and the Rhinestones are Michaels $1 spot and the Pearls are Queen and Co.
The inside is more dp and a distressed message mat (that sounds funny!)
Here is a close up of Tilda in her Love sweater.
I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it.
Be sure to come back next week for lots of new cards.
