A Tilda Valentine

Good Morning!

Hope you're day is off to a great start. My fingers are crossed for a fun play date today, we were suppose to have one on Monday but the snowy weather forced us to cancel. Then it snowed all day yesterday too, so we're hoping for some sunshine today! And, I'm really looking forward to the adult conversation too!

I created a card last night just for the sake of stamping. I feel like it's been a while since I got the chance to get inky and so I made a list of challenges and worked on a card. And this is what I came up with....

This is my Valentine Tilda with a funky twist. The papers are DCWV, I think! They were from a friend and I so very much appreciate that she shared them with me. They are all pretty and covered with glitter! The sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I embellished with flowers, black sticky gems, and white gel pen dots. Tilda was colored with Copics and then I paper pieced her dress to match one of the papers on the card.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Creative Card Crew - Punch It
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of Layering
Paper Take Weekly - Pink
Magnolia Down Under - Valentine's Day

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope to back with another creation tomorrow. Until then, happy stamping! :)

And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little brother! One more year and he'll be 30!
