Cute Card Thursday - Tilda with Rose

I've done this for Cute Card Thursday's challenge which is open so lots of scope to do anything you fancy. This card originally started off as something else but I had a change of heart half way through and ended up with this.

I love this Tilda image, I think she's my favourite of them all. I've gone back to my old faithfuls - Papermania Simply Elegant papers (can't believe they have discontinued these!!).

I'm still decorating the insides and backs of my cards, keep it up Bev lol. I've stamped around the white mat with a little Studio G scroll to break up the white a bit.

And I had a tiny scrap of patterned paper left which just fitted on the back nicely and tied it all together.

Magnolia image coloured with Distress Inks and H2O's
Papers are Papermaina Simply Elegant 6 x 6 pack
Sentiment is from a See D's set
Label punch is from Stampin Up!
Flowers are Prima

Thanks for looking,

  42. wauuuuuw bev, it's really fabulous!!

  43. Just found your amazing Blog - WOW, each card is a complete work of art. They are totally gorgeous.

    Can I ask with regards to the stitching do you use a regular sewing machine or one of those little ones that are for crafters?

    I do have a gib sewing machine, but my craft room is such a complete tip I haven't got the room to get it out so had been looking at the little sewing machines but have heard they aren't very good.

    Keep bringing us your fantastic creations and may your creative juices never run dry.
