Totally Tilda DT Call

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the Olympic games. Well done to all those Olympians who have won medals - especially the British!

There is another event that for Magnolia lovers is almost as significant - there is a DT call at Totally Tilda with the above photo as your inspiration. You have until 19th August to get in your entry - good luck everyone.

I have used the lovely sketch at Magnolia Down Under Challenges, shown below...

Here is my entry using Tilda as Christmas Angel from the 2009 Christmas collection.

Not necessarily a Christmas card but as I haven't put a sentiment on it I suppose it could be. I have coloured her with Twinkling H2O's - I thought it was about time I used them having bought them about 4 years ago!!! The papers are from a Lucy Cromwell pack - Designstax - I just love the colours and need to buy some more!!. The card for the matt is Whitewash Coredinations. I must admit this was a challenge because I couldn't get the right blue to go with the pink until I thought of the whitewash card. The butterfly border is a Tim Holtz on the egde die called Butterflight. I have put a doily in the background and used TH distress ink - Spun Sugar on the edges. The flower were in a candy win from Mandy (A Sprinkling of Glitter) - thanks hun. THe lace is from my stash and the butterfly and flower shapes are die cuts that I got from the Range last week, I have covered them with Frantage embossing powder - Shabby Pink  and I just love the effect.

So fingers crossed that I make the DT call and Good Luck to everyone else.
I would also like to enter this card at :-

Tildas Town Challenge - Vintage, and,

Magnolia Mania Challenge - Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
