School Tilda

Hello and a wonderful Monday. Well.. my cards looks almost like the one from yesterday right :-) wink.. iam sorry.. i noticed that once the card was almost done. I was just not up to changing it anymore. I am so not happy with my coloring on Tilda.. i have colored her 3x!!! how frustrating if it just doesn't get together. So i let hubby pick the one he thought is okay to add to the front and second choice were added to the inside.
If you like the sketch on my card and are up for a challenge with many layers.. check out this weeks "Stamp with Fun" challenge blog. My friend Murmur provided this weeks sketch.

Stamps: The lovely sentiment is from the Magnolia "Graduation 2009 Collection" and cute Tilda can be found in the School 2008 Collection" or click on the link and it leads you right to the stamp.
Tools: Nestabilities (love that shape :-), Cuttlebug Swiss dot (to decorate the corners), Fiskars Apron Lace Border punch
Papers: My Minds Eye "Deena's Penny Lane", Stampin up (Ruby Red, Marigold Morning,
Embellishments: Ribbons: Stampin up, Robins Nest (they are now finally available in single colors - loove that!!), gorgeous flowers a gift from my dear friend Carole!!! Thank you sweetie!
