Drip Drop Tilda

Hello dearest readers,

This is a first for me - two posts in one day! I hope you will take a minute and go back a page to see a sweet card I created using Edwin with Stolen Heart. It's one of my all time favorite cards!

I sort of stopped entering challenges. I became disappointed because on many challenges, I could never find out who had won! I kept going back and looking for a winners posting, and I couldn't find them! I can't be that blind, can I? Have any of you experienced where blogs do not post winners? Is it me? *sigh* It very well could be! LOL That's what happens when you get older than dinosaurs! LOL

Well, I decided to give entering a challenge another try. This challenge is at Creashop Duymelot in the Netherlands. The challenge was to create a card featuring Drip Drop Tilda. I've had this little gem of a stamp since the end of January and have just now had the time to ink her up and create a card. I just love it! It is the cutest little stamp! Please click on photos to see a larger image.Here is my card:

The papers I used have gray, blue gray, blue, and yellow-green in them. They also have sparkle on the patterned papers. I liked the cover paper which has little white clouds with stars and hearts falling from them. I thought it matched the rainy theme. It also has flowers and hearts printed on it. It's very sweet. I chose a blue gray cardstock as well as a deeper gray cardstock as the base. You cannot see, but Tilda is standing in a puddle of sparkly glitter to match the glittered raindrops. I rimmed the image in pearls, added blue ribbon, assorted flowers, and die cuts.

For this panel, I chose to use a companion paper. I thought this umbrella die cut would be fun for the inside. I wanted it to stand out, so I backed it with the lime green cardstock. I repeated the pearls from the front and applied them to the umbrella. I also added a pretty bow and charm.

This is the bottom panel. I kept it plain so that a special message could be added. Another repeated pearl accent and bow were applied.

Here you see the complete inside. The photos do not show just how pretty the colors are. I think it turned out very well!

I hope you like my Drip Drop Tilda card! Thank you, Creashop Duymelot, for having this challenge!
