Hello, Friends. I am so ready for Spring! We just got another foot of snow this last weekend and I’m hoping we are caught up with the much needed moisture. But, I am dying for the warm weather to grace us and stay put for a while.
Our new challenge is up at Magnolia-licous & Wee Stamps. This fortnight we are celebrating…
Spring is in the Air
There’s lots of DT inspiration to behold at the Challenge blog. So stop over and visit us.
My card features Tilda with Big Tulip Pot from the 2013 Easter Collection colored with Copics. I just love creating the background with these clouds so I had fun with this technique again. The tulips in my garden are peeking out of the ground by about 3 inches and I love the “Claudia” Tulips. So I decided to color it Claudia style.
My DPs are from Doodlebug Design, they're such fresh colors and patterns that go so well with Tilda. Plus, I had to have a go at the terra cotta colors for her tulip pot. I really enjoyed coloring this Tilda.
I used my new Magnolia Vintage Box Lacing Chocolate die cut border and the heart banner was created with my Silhouette. So adorable, don’t you think? I added some ribbon flowers on each side of my image with lime rhinestones for a bit of glitz.
I finished off the card with some springy flowers, it couldn't go without a few Tulips.
Here’s a close-up of Tilda. She is just a "doll" in those green boots.
The inside has similar elements from the front with blank space for a personal sentiment or message.
