Tilda Boxes Against Breast Cancer

Hi Sweetpeas!

I hope this message finds you well. This is all doctor appointment week for us. Make sure you get your flu shots! We got ours yesterday. The temperatures are supposed to plummet tomorrow by at least 25 degrees! woo Hoo! Come on Fall! They are even predicting snow in some higher elevations.

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to take the photos and post it. I hope you like it. I used our little Tilda wearing boxing gloves stamp. I did hte last one in red and charcoal. I decided to girly this one up a bit. Here she is:


I used paper from my stash and some lovely flowers from Hooked on Craft. I made the wrought iron gate using my Cricut. I liked having a bit of texture behind the image. The scalloped mat was done using my Nesties with glittered cardstock. I added two little pink ribbons to Tilda's pig tails. I love it when I can add teeny tiny bows!

This is the inside of the card. I'll just insert all of the photos at once.




I love the softness of this card. The tag is removable as you can see. I also left an area for personal sentiments. The oval was bordered witht he pink glittered cardstock as found on the cover of the card.

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope you liked my work. I'd love a comment if you have time time!

Just FABULOUS! of course i have a weakness for pink and then the cause is very close to my heart, i have been in remission for ten years now, so this just touches the heart strings, and you used your cricut, mine has been under a dust cover for too long now, once i get settled into my new house i will have to start using it again. i love all the details and layers, this is a true masterpiece and that paper is stunning, TFS

Chris, your card is awesome! I love all the pink and the plaid in the background. I'm very bad about not finishing the inside of the card and your inside of your card is outstanding. Makes me want to finish my cards lol. Have a great day,

Just Fabulous Chris, so wonderfully put together. I love your idea of using this Tilda boxing against cancer. She looks so determined. The fence, and the lovely swirly corners are wonderful additions and do give texture, and oh! what a style. Awesome!

This is a ..."knockout"...for sure. She won in the 10th round as I am sure it might have taken awhile creating such a gorgeous card. The detail is amazing and adds great flavor to your card. You have a "Winner" for sure.
