Glitter Me Silly

wind_2_head

Hello all … oh… today is a fun challenge posted over on Cute Card Challenge blog :-) “Glitter Me Silly” looove it – you can give me this challenge anytime of the year lol. Okay… there is something about this Tilda… first i saw her used on a card last year by my friend Jacqueline. After that i HAD to have her. By the time i had her – it was too late in the season to use her on cards.. and this year.. i don’t know.. i have started to color her 2x and than misplaced my design paper that i had matched the colors with and the images never made it onto a card. hahaha… just so you know there might be coming some more cards with her if i ever remember what papers to use with the image.

I think iam a bit chatty today. Back to the card… the paper here is one sheet of double sided Reminisce paper. I love the strong reds on it. The entire punched out lattice i used lots of Stickles and also on the swirls and candy she is having in her basket. On the ground i have used Flower Soft Polar White for sparkle. Polar White has a bit more sparkle in it than the Ivory color. Unfortunately i could not get it really nice to show on my picture. I think it is wroth to get that color. (you know me.. i do not use Flower Soft that often)

Other embellishments not mentioned above: Felt flowers are by “Little Yellow Bicycle”, red glove charm (Merry Minis – Michaels) ribbon (Magnolia), Hardware (Stampin up) Gems (Hero Arts)

Claudia, your cards always amaze me! Every time you manage to find the perfect layout and balance it with the right amount and type of embellishments! And this card is no exception - I just love it!

Christine said...

Your card is gorgeous!!! I love all the layering and that flower soft is perfect on it. Do you just use regular sewing thread in your machine when you stitch on your cards. It seems thicker. Fabulous job coloring, fabulous layout, altogether just fabulous!!! It is such a joy to see your cards everyday.
xoxo, Christine
