Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #59 - It's Love a Tree Day...

Hello again! Here I am with my second blog post this weekend. Whew! I've been one busy little beaver.

Today's post is for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog. Did you know that today is "Love a Tree Day?" Apparently it's on the calendar, but not mine ;-) Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Meljen's Designs. They are offering four images of the winners choice. So you want to get busy and make a card or project with a tree on it somewhere. To honor the day, I used Magnolia images #476 Spring Tree and #362 Berry Tilda. Both available from Diana here at Magnolia-licious.

Here is my card...

My card recipe:

Card stock - Whisper White, Sage Shadow (SU)
DP - cratepaper Lillian Collection Home
Copics used -
Skin - E00, E000, E0000
Hair - E17, E18, E19, E13
Dress and Socks - E93, R22m C00, C01, C03
Flower - Y35, BG10, BG32
Tree - E25, E31, E35 Blossoms - R21
Shadow - N1, N3, N5
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls and Pearl Spray - stash
Ribbon - stash
Charm - Hobby Lobby
Butterflies - MS punch
Pretty In Pink Chalk (used on cheeks) - SU
Nestabilities Circle and Scalloped Circle dies

Here is a close up of how I colored Tilda...

I used the Out of the Box technique to cut out Tilda and the circle she is on. The layers were adhered with pop dots. All my panels are sewn on my machine and I added the half-back pearls to each corner. The bow was made on my Bow Easy and the darling charm attached using "O" rings.

On the inside I colored another image of Tilda and repeated the circle theme. I love the flowers and pearls and the butterflies. This has become my "signature" and when I don't use the flowers, I hear about it! LOL

Here's a close-up of Tilda on the inside...
