Sweet and Romantic Tilda...

It's Monday and I have managed to get another card finished to share with you. I just couldn't wait to use some of my new Melissa Frances papers and embellishments. This paper is so pretty, girly, romantic and completely up my alley! Because of the flowers on the paper, I didn't add one flower embellishment to this card anywhere. I did use some of my new seam binding though to make some pretty bows. I don't have any challenges to enter this card in...I'm just too busy to look right now, but I'm sure it would meet some challenge somewhere!

Here is the front of my card...notice the pretty corner embellishment in the lower right. These are so gorgeous I wish I had more of them. I've used two in the making of the card...



A couple of side views...





Here is a close up of Tilda. Her hair was fabulous to color...



I completely copied the inside of my card from Pat Frank! She always does such beautiful cards, inside and out! So I hope she doesn't mind...I've also used another Melissa Frances corner embellishment in the lower left corner of the top panel.


Here is a close up of the little tag. It is also a Melissa Frances piece. I colored #3085 Tilda Carrying Lamb on Cryogen, cut it out but didn't pop it up, because I wanted the little tag to tuck into the pocket. The border is Magnolia's Romantic Heart border.


Thank you for dropping in to see my latest creation.

Hugs,
Barb
