Cherry Tilda

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well. A magnolia card today which was one that didn't go into the Midsummer Magnolia Ink magazine so thought I'd post it today. I've used the lovely Cherry Tilda from the 2008 travel and school collection and the Fence and Summer Background from the 2008 summer and sea collection. I've water coloured with distress inks and Tilda is cut out and and attached to the card with gel glue. The scalloped background is an SVG file cut on the cricut and to finish off I added some stickles, butterflies punched from watercolour paper and then water coloured and some linen thread bows. 

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your Sunday.

Chris, wow the colours are so vibrant and bring to life another amazing creation. Cherry Tilda is stunning and the background scene is so lifelike. I agree with Hanna, this should be framed for all to admire. hugs Jodie from Oz
