Tilda with Two Balloons Sends Birthday Wishes

Hello Dearest Readers,

How are you this wonderful Sunday? It's a bit wet and dreary here this weekend. We had snow the other day, which was such a nice surprise. Here are a couple of photos from my part of the universe:

Usually, it gets extremely quiet when it snows. This storm caught everyone by surprise as we were to have rain. I woke up at morning's first light and looked out the upper windows at our trees. I kept wiping my eyes because I kept thinking I was seeing snow on the trees! I woke up my DH and told him that I thought it was snowing outside. He got up, looked out the lower windows and everything was white! So, we opened the blinds, sat in bed, and watched the snow fall outside! It was so special! It's not a common thing in the desert, so when we get it, I am in heaven!

Guess what! There is a new challenge today at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog! Our challenge for you this time is…..

Use a Number

Your card should display a number somewhere in its design. Maybe you have a little someone with a birthday coming. Maybe you want to design a card based on 10 Reasons I Love You! Maybe you have paper with numbers printed on it. It's up to you!

Here is my inspiration card:

For this card, I used an older Tilda stamp that I thought was so precious. My colors are pink, white, and gray. The papers used are by Maja Designs. I also used pink seam binding, pink box pleated ribbon, a strand of white voile rosettes, and pink, gray, and white flowers. The rhinestone charm looks fabulous on the card. It just brightens it up with sparkle.

Here is a peek at the inside:

The inside is very basic.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you will enter our challenge with a lovely project you've designed and created!

A beautiful card CHris and a lovely colour choice. Lots of fab details, the bling 3 looks great and also the inside is very nice. It will indeed have been a strange sight seeing snow in the dessert! hugs, Marlies said...

What a lovely card did you make Chris. The ruffled ribbon and the nice colours make it very festive. The inside is also beautiful decorated, it is almost a little present.
Greetings Miranda
