Elf Tilda

Today I finally have another Maggie for you! I gonna try to make these more often and will start coloring them up today, so be prepared. Anyway, I started this in hope that it would be done on time to get into the Just Magnolia challenge, but I ran out of time. Never fear, I can enter other challenges! So, on with it then!


I made this an easel card and used one of my new maggies so it can go into the Manolia-licious Birthday Bash challenge. This first bit of this went pretty easily, but after I got the corners and the circle for her background done it was a little slow going. Using these little flowers is brand new to me and I'm trying to get a feel for using more embellishments, so that took me a while. Just to note, the whole front face of this card is on tiny 1/16" pop-up dots...it's actually pretty neat looking!




Here is a close-up of Tilda. Those pretty flowers you see are from Wild Orchid...Love them! If you've been wondering about them but were sure about shipping and such, do order them, they are so reasonably priced and the shipping in probably less than what you'd spend having it whipped from the states...I actually could've doubled my order for and had no change in shipping...but I'm tryng out this new thing, not using credit cards, so I couldn't...but, I will be saving up for next time!



Here is the inside. I kept it pretty simple and haven't written anything as I don't know what this will be used for. However, I've thought of tons of little things I could write to go along with the 'A Little Sparkle' that's on the front. Well, that's about it, I hope you've enjoyed my little Tilda and are having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is so cute Autumn! I love the colors you used. I understand what you mean about the flowers. I usually don't add alot of "stuff". My last card I added a rose and it was harder than I thought it would be. I need alot of practice. TFS
