Tilda Made With Love.....

Good morning everyone!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Last night I sat colouring images and this card just grew from nothing really..... I had a couple of sheets of Papermania paper sat on the table which I was using for a colour guide and next minute I was hacking into one of them to create a spray of roses, lol! Quite often when I'm out shopping for papers I look to see if anything can be cut up into embellishments because I like the look it creates.

I cut a strip with one of the MS deep edge punches to create interest behind Tilda and stamped some foliage with a Lavinia stamp. I then added some leaves and roses and matted the main layer onto a sheet of Magnolia paper from the latest collection. Finally I punched some small butterflies and added a Magnolia sentiment.... oh and a few pretty pearls.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges today:

Papertake Weekly - In the Garden

Everybody Art Challenge - Holidays

Bunny Zoe Crafts - Summer Days

Quixotic Challenge - Pretty Pearls

By The Cute And Girly - Warm Summer Days

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Summer

Well I shall just finish supping my brew as they say in these parts..... roughly translated as drinking my tea, lol! Then I'm off to work as always, so I'll catch up with you all a bit later ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Your creativity is just amazing!!! And leaves are DEFINITELY your thing - you use them so well. Love that foliage stamp, so pretty and elegant!
I've been working on the Tildas you sent me - they're so pretty but I'm still not sure I like what I did with them. :( I'll get my courage up and put together a card with them soon!
