GDT- Totally Tilda

Hello Everyone....

I'm back again and this time I'm so thrilled to say I'm a guest on TOTALLY TILDA  

I was thrilled to bits when I recieved an e-mail from CHRISTINE  asking if I would be a guest designer...

The challenge is "TILDA IN STITCHES"...add sewing to your card...gulp...me and a sewing machine...so out came my 30 year old Elna Contessa....dusted her off, and away we went...



First time going around an oval...all panels have sewing...beautiful papers are from 'papercraft inspiration downloads freebies'  really gorgeous papers...matched with olive green cardstock...used an alphabet stamp set for the Happy Birthday sentiment...which crooked...but appealing..lol..



Close up of Tilda..coloured with Faber Castell pencils...gorgeous flowers from WOC and MS leaf punch.

Sparkly socks and gift...lace from my stash...and tiny puched butterflies with pearls.



And a side view, with those beautiful papers inside...

So there you go, and please hop over to the main blog to see all the beautiful Tilda creations from the DT's.. with stitching ..dust off your sewing machine and come and play....

Entering this card at Just Magnolia  [spring colours]
Thanks for stopping by...and thank you so much TOTALLY TILDA  for having me as your guest...

Luv CHRISSYxx

I love the wonky sentiment, it reminds me so much of the first typewriter I used at work, it always printed the letter e higher than any other letters, lol. Brilliant sweetie. Hugs Sxx
