Tilda's Getting Married!


Back again.... Honestly, no posts for ages and then two come along at once! I'm like the number 11 bus (fellow Brummies will know what I mean!)

My sister asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is getting married so I just had to use this sweet image (possibly sent to me by Mandy??? Most of my Tilda's are from Mandy :-) Thankyou!)

I followed the fab sketch that Donna produced for Sunday Sketch & Stamp (again! I love this sketch and will definitely use it again!)

I used my leafy lace border punch to make a frame for the image and then added on of my fave sentiments from Sentiments 4 You. I made a little boo boo and the sentiment was slightly too large for my nestie so I accidentally chopped off a little bit of the "W" - a few strategically placed butterflies and nobody's any the wiser.... Unless I tell you all, of course :-)

A close up of the image....

I also used:
Glitter glue
Papers - Wild rose studio
Ribbon from Woolworths(!)
Pearls from stash

Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes
Totally Tilda - Wedding
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Wags 'n' whiskers - lace (leafy lace border punch)

Oh, and before I go I just want to tell you all how thrilled I was to get a Top 3 at Ladybug Crafts Ink with this card!!!! I love to win the random prizes of course - everybody does. But to be actually chosen I was so chuffed I could have burst! Thankyou so much :-)

Right, I'm off to cook dinner! Back again tomorrow with my DT card for Dream Valley....

Love 'n' hugs,
