Where There Is Love ... There Is Life

Hello good morning :-) or happy Saturday. I think my card today looks really simple but boy this card took me a long, long time to make! First i had to find the right sentiment that's long and narrow so the words AND Tilda would fit. First i masked the frame and stamped Tilda to the left - i masked both images. Than i had to divide the sentiment into 2 sections, one part in the top and one at the bottom and stamped that inside the frame. I masked Tilda and airbrushed the frame in, than i colored the berries, leaves and Tilda. Stamped than Tilda a second time and colored her in and added her with pop up dots to the image.

It was fun to make but boy.. to stamp that sentiment straight and in place surely cost me a lot of patience :-) and white papers lol..
For the inside i must say i just wanted to finish the card. I did not airbrush the frame anymore but i did take care that the berries with leaves and ladybug are colored nicely in.
This card is for a very wonderful person i have met online :-)
Papers: Autum Leaves and Stampin up
Embellishments: Martha Stewart pearl stickers, Stampin up grosgrain, Making Memories button, Scrappers Floss
Sketch for this card was provided by my friend Sharon!

Another fabulously beautiful card! The details to all your cards are so perfect! Just a thought.. maybe a stamp positioner for stamping the sentiment would have saved you some white paper :) Thanks again for the beautiful inspirations!
