Well, here is my second Tilda card ever that I finished today to enter into several challenges. This is "Rose Garden Tilda". I just love all the Tilda images and have added several new stamps to my collection. Two down, four to go! I did a lot of distressing on this card, both with ink and tool, to achieve a shabby chic look. I used a variety of coordinating papers in my stash, an inked paper doily and some new crocheted lace, as well as an assortment of WOC flowers which I absolutely love. I also tried out a new Tim Holtz mini rosette die that my hubby bought for me this weekend. What fun - I can so see myself going rosette crazy! :)

I'm entering "Hi" into the following challenges:


  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; light blue textured cardstock; white glittered cardstock
