Under the Weather?



I am enjoying this Cozy Autumn Collection from Magnolia. I have a couple of cards in various stages of completion on my desk. Just not enough hours in the day for it all!!

On a recent trip to my LSS I found this absolutely gorgeous paper from 7 Gypsies called Flora. It was the color that attracted me to it and I knew exactly which image I wanted to use with it. So without further ado, here is my card, and I have quite a few photos of it so show you...



After I got the front of the card made I realized that there was no space for a sentiment and I wasn't even sure what sentiment I would use with it. So I let the inside of the card take care of that issue.

Here is a closer look at Tilda in Windy Weather (#299). She is available from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store. She wouldn't fit onto my largest circle die so I just let her feet step out of the circle.




Here is the inside of my card...On the top I just used my computer generated sentiment and some plain circles with a little dash of flowers along the edge. I love the way the flowers dress up the inside of my cards.



On the bottom panel I decided to repeat the Pearl Lace I'd used on the front and I found a Tilda with a similar hat so that she matched the front. I don't actually own this image, she was a gift from someone in a swap! I'm so glad I found her because I really wanted the two Tilda's to be wearing the same kind of hats.



Here is a closer look at this Tilda. She colored up beauituflly!!!



Here is how the whole card looks when it's open...



Here is my signautre piece on the back of the card...

  3. Wow wow wow, this is absolutely gorgeous, Barb. Your colouring is fantabulous--I specially like the way you colour Tilda's dress. And you're right about the DP--it's beautiful. Love that earthy/autumny colours. Lovely work with the pearl string around the circles. So beautifully put together. Love it the card.

  16. Barb,this is adorable, your card is certainly not under the weather! So tender and lovely it will give a sweet hug to anyone receiving it. Your coloring of Tilda is magnificient. I love how you cut the circle around her, leaving her feet out. Papers are wonderful. the inside is just as beautiful, such a delicate detail adding pearls around the die cut. Your signature piece is so neat. How cool!
    Hugs.
