Hang in there.....
Hi everyone! I'm back again with a new card. This is the last of the cards I colored while recovering from my foot surgery. Actually I got quite a lot accomplished while I was laying around.
Just a quick update on my hubby and I. I am at last out of the brace and wearing my tennis shoes (which are brand new)! I'm doing well in Physical Therapy and for the most part I walk without a limp. We went back to the surgeon this past Thursday to see how DH is coming along and to his great disappointment they have left him in the "leg irons" (that is our term for the external fixater) until September 21st. Then they will take more Xrays and hopefully he be able to move into "the boot". It will be a milestone for him.
So onto my card....
I hadn't had a chance to use this little Tilda before, when she was fresh and new, and I was looking for a way to ink her up and show her off. This lovely stitching pattern just seemed to lend itself so well to her. She is #317 - Dangling Tilda - from the Raising the Ceiling collection available from Diana at Magnolia-licious.
My card recipe is listed at the bottom of the post, if you're interested in what I used to create this card. I was really trying to match the pretty teal color in the dp. I scored around the edges of my stitching panel for a little interest using my Score Buddy.
Here's my card...
Here is a closer view of how I colored Tilda...you can click on any picture to get a larger view...
The inside of the card is pretty simple. I didn't have enough of my dp left over to cover both sides so I just made a panel and added ribbon to the top side.
