Tilda in Ballet Shoes

Good morning sweet readers, It is bright and early this mid June morning! I actually got up before the hummingbirds did! So, here I am. I started this morning making a bowl of chicken salad. I thought it would make for nice sandwiches. I always use Best Foods Mayo made with Canola oil to cut down on the calories, but this time, I used REGULAR Best Foods! **GASP** I have noticed that when I make a salad using mayo with canola oil, after a day, there is liquid in the container and the mayo appears to be partially dissolved. I concluded that it had to be the canola oil mayo that was breaking down. So, to test my theory, I made this salad with the good stuff! We'll see how it turns out. LOL I'd like to share a card with you this morning. I used Tilda in Ballet Shoes as my image. I just love, love, love this little Tilda. I used tons of layering, machine stitching, inking, distressing, and tons of elements. There is a removable tag inside the envelope in the upper left. It says, "With Gratitude." Here she is: I added pearls to her bow and head band. I also added two teeny tiny pink rhinestones to simulate earrings. The papers are from Papermania, the stamp is from Magnolia-licious, and the flowers are from Hooked on Craft Here is the inside: I am so not a pink person, but I love the softness of this card. The seam binding added just the perfect texture. I added the same teeny tiny pink rhinestones to each corner diecut. It also added just the right amount of sparkle without overwhelming the corner. I just love this little image! What a sweet little Tilda! Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope you will coe back again soon! I'd love a comment if you have the time! XO, Chris

Beautiful card! Love the inside as much as I do the outside. Pink may not be your color, but you sure do know how to use it right!
