Tilda's Happiness......

Good morning folks!

I hope you're all having a good week so far? Here is a card I made using an older Tilda stamp and it made me realise how much Magnolia have changed their images over time. They're definitely bigger now and the face shape has changed so much, but I really like the innocence of this sweet image so much!

I used Papermania V&A papers and Martha Stewart punches for the flowers and leaves. That gorgeous coffee coloured trim was from my local haberdashery shop and was very expensive.... over a fiver for a metre so I only bought 1/4 of a metre and need to use it sparingly.... although something tells me I'll be back there to buy more, lol!

I'm entering the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Toppings (Flowers, Distressing, Pink)

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Pastels

Bunny Zoes - Spring.... Flowers Everywhere!

7 Kids - Square

ABC - Old Fashioned (this Tilda compared to the new ones)

The Play Date Cafe - Pink, Beige

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

Oh hun, she is gorgeous - I am ashamed to say my older Tildas are neglected, I must make an effort to get them out - the papers are fab and that coffee trim is beautiful, can see why it was expensive! Hugs, Sxx
