Tilda on the Loose...

Hello my friends! I have just one more post for you before I go to CHA. I'm telling you, I'm so excited about going I can hardly contain my myself! This is just a quick post not much chit chat! I wanted to make one more Pyramid card decorating all three sides of it. I already had the card stock cut and scored so I hated to let it go to waste. I had this wonderful designer paper I was itching to use too...a gift from my sweet friend Paola in South Africa! I went looking for an image I thought would be showcased beautifully by the paper.

Here is the front of my Pyramid card...

Here is one side...I've used some pearl flourishes that had these tiny roses attached...

The third side of my Pyramid card...

Finally, here is what the card looks like opened up all the way!

Thanks for coming to view my latest card...and I hope you'll give these fun, quick cards a try. They showcase the Mini Magnolia's perfectly.

Hugs and blessings,
