Midweek Magnolias - Buttons and Bows

Happy Hump Day, Friends!

I’m here with a reminder for Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog. There's a week left for you to enter a card or project for our current challenge theme…

“Buttons & Bows”

My DT card features "Divine Tilda" from the Waiting for Christmas collection. My mother passed away a couple weeks ago and I made this card as a “Thank You” for one of her many good friends.

I used some pretty Maja Design paper (can never have enough of these!) and a new butterfly die from Frantic Stamper. The sentiment is from LOTV. I love these because they are so versatile with a variety of messaging in the middle of the stamp.

I colored Tilda with Copics and I smeared some Brushed Pewter Distress paint randomly over the card elements. I got a bit messy with it but it adds a lot of texture and sheen as you can see in this photo.

Here’s a close up of Tilda. I gave her some tiny eyelashes for a little character. Isn’t she adorable?

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us for the challenge. I’ll be back next week; see you then.
