You are so special...

I needed to have a card ready to send to someone who is special in my life. I looked online to find a sketch and found one, but changed it to suit my dies. Here I have used #244 TILDA WITH ARMFUL OF TULIPS. She is not currently available from Diana at the Magnolia-licious store but I'm sure if you want her Diana can get her in for you.

Here is the front of my card...

I gave Tilda some pretty Auburn colored hair...

Here is an "artsy" view of my card...

Inside, my card looks like this...

  4. This is so beautiful and elegant, Barb! I love this Tilda and bought her the other day partly because she is so beautiful and the stamp is so versatile and partly because I have friends who are not very fond of my mouthless kiddos and in this one the lack of mouth is less evident:)
