Cupcake Craft Challenge #64


Thank you for taking the time to visit my little corner of crafty blogland. I reckon many of you will be worn out with your toils at the NEC (can you sense the envy - all those goodies 350 miles away!!!). My DIL, Sarah, tells me that she has bought me some Christmas Tildas - she's a good girl.

This card was made for Cupcake Crafts challenge where they provided a sketch to follow. I delved into the new paper stocks and came up with some from the Designer Series - "Perfect Plum" by Stampin Up. I thought they would suit the layout. The image is of course Magnolia's "Rainy Day Tilda" coloured in using my Copic Ciaos which are now fast running dry. I am waiting for an order of refill inks to arrive so until they do I may be limited in my colour choices. The flowers I made by cutting out petals from the papers with various sizes of punches and using a brad in the middle to hold them together. The brads and ribbon are from Stampin Up (handy having a DIL who is a demostrator) and the fronds and sentiment are from my stash.

If you have time I would love it if you left a comment. I value your opinions and it's such a shame not to leave a record of your visit here.

Hugs,

  7. Morning MIL, Fab card as usual, love that purple paper and that Tilda is one of my faves. Love the flower arrangement to.

    I have only just got out of bed, soooo tired from a second day of trawling the NEC craft show with a pal yesterday, we got to do some make and takes and got a couple of freebies to, saw a few more blogging Pals and picked up a couple more bits and bobs.

    I will get your Tilda in the post tomorrow, speak to you tonight.

    Hugs
