Oh my Tilda is Distressed today .............................................

as was I a minute of two earlier, I had a crafty blitch which I quickly turned into a creative flair moment.
 well it was not my fault that the button would not colour with the copics because of the glue that had come through the button holes :(  quickly remedied with more glue and flower soft :) phew!!!!!!

So I was asked to create a very glittery, girly birthday card and this is what I came up with.  I like the sketch from Just Magnolia this week which the talented Dawny has created so this was my starting point.
I took my colour inspiration from Colour Create who have a challenge theme of pastels, lilac, yellow and mint.

So this is my creation
I made the side panels too big or was it the image that was too wide.  Well anyway you can only just see the lilac and purple background paper from the Capsule Collection.  Not sure where the lemon papers are from but I got them at the Hobby House a while back but when I was in there yesterday they still have them on the shelves.  I distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo and added just a little bit of stickles glitter.  The lace is from Running With Scissors and it allows you to thread your chosen ribbon colour through it, I stopped half way to add my sentiment tag and then carried on again before distressing the edges of the lace.  I added flourishes of pearls also from the Hobby House and the flowers are from Hobby Craft.  Tilda is modeling the latest in Summer Fashion the paper pieced dress with matching socks and to set the whole thing off superbly are those flower soft filled copic coloured flower buttons.  The background paper is a lovely mint green.

Here is a close up of the flowers all glittered up
and a close up of the image coloured in the preferred media of copics but with the paper pieced dress and socks with a little distressing added too.
Matt is now home and his match was OK he is very cold and did not win but he had a good match.  

Well think I ought to go spend some time with him and relax and watch some TV too I think.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Stamp with Fun - Girl Card
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tim Holtz inspired
Simon Says Stamp - Paper Piecing
Totally Tilda - Lilac and Lace
Crafty Sentiments - Summer Inspiration, well don't the flowers say Summer (can't wait till my parcel arrives from my win then I can hopefully use this for these challenges, was so pleased as when they change back to the normal rules, I would not have been able to enter, but now I should be able to - whoop, whoop)
Sweet Stampin - Distressed Birthdays
Craftilicious - Purple and Green

think that is it for today, now to get a bottle of wine out, you will find out why soon promise
