Arty Girlz - Make a wish

This is my card for this weeks Arty Girls Challenge blog. Julie invited me to be the Guest Desinger for this week since it did not work out a couple of weeks ago :-) Anyhow.. it was so sweet of her to choose the theme: Winged Things... hehehe.... so i went with Magnolias angles. May i show you to my first Tilda "Paper doll" card. :-)

These stamps are REALLY fun to use and color in. I added the shoes with 1/8 spacers and the outfit with higher spacers. This card is super girlie with all that pink - so i added for sparkle Stickles on the scallops and the mat. The tiny hot pink ribbon on my buttons is a string from my "Rasberry Ribbon's" June kit. It was used to hold the tag to the plastic box. I could not bare to throw it away :-) it is perfect for the button holes.


Sentiment: Amuse Elzy Bell
Embellishments: Making Memories Buttons, Stickles,

How to make the card:

you will need
1 piece of Desinger Paper cut to 5.5 x 12 scored at 6"
1 piece of coordinating Cardstock 5.5 x 9 (trim exess off with decorative siccors) scored at 6"
1 piece of coordinating Designer Paper - cut circle 5" diameter(i used Creative Memories)
Scalloped Siccors
Circle Cutter

Adhere your piece of CS to the piece of DP (shown on my card on the left side) to the inside (that's going to be the part were you will write on).Fold circle in half and layer it over the scored part (the flap thats about 3") of your plain CS. If you want to close your card with ribbon - add your ribbon at this point underneath your circle. Adhere all layers with sticky tape. Use your siccors to trim carefully arround the 5" circle leaving a nice border.
