Lilac Tilda is Charming...

Remember my last post, when I showed you a Tilda that wasn't the right color for my DSP? Well, she is finished now, having had 30 minutes here and there and last evening to work on her. Here is the finished product...



This is also my submission for the Just Magnolias challenge this week which is to use charms somewhere on your card. A perfect fit!

I used Taken With Teal and More Mustard cardstock and found some old SU dsp in my stash that had similar colors. The flowers are layered and held together with a rhinestone brad, also SU. I used some opalescent thread to make a few loops behind one flower and a bee charm to some silver chain and attached it beneath the other flower. The layout is an older Friday Sketcher's Challenge sketch.

Here is a closer view of my completed Tilda...




Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your interest...

  12. Hi Barb,
    Tilda was beautiful the other day when she didn't have DP - I knew once she did she would be a knock out!! Your cards keep getting better and better!!! Everything co-ordinates so well. Love your charm too.
