Magnolia Tilda with Jolly Roger Card


Hello Dearest Readers,

I hope this post finds you happy and healthy! July is zipping by so quickly! I cannot believe we are at mid-month already! We've had a pretty good summer so far. Yesterday, we got 1.25 inches of rain! Thank goodness!

Today is Team B's turn to reveal their inspiration cards for the Anchors Aweigh Challenge at the Magnolia-lcious Challenge Blog. I had fun with this challenge! I chose to use two older stamps - Tilda with Jolly Roger paired with the Barrel and Skull stamp. Both are from the 2010 Fairy Tale Collection. Here are some photos for you:







Isn't that Tilda adorable? I think she is too cute! On the front of my card, I've done some inking and lots of layering. The image has been colored with distress inks. There is a hidden tag behind the white metal "happy birthday" tab. I've also included some nautical themed buttons, cheesecloth, ribbon, twine, and the Doohickey die called "Event Flags" from the Once Upon a Time Collection.

Diana is currently out of both stamps in the standard size, but does have them in the mini size. Here are the links:

While you're visiting the Magnolia-licious Store, you might want to check out the new Memory Box and Poppy Stamp holiday dies that Diana has gotten in. They are sure "purdy!" Diana also has the wonderful Sakura collection stamps as well as many others such as Crafter's Companion, Little Darling's Dollhouse Collection, and From the Hollow Fairy Stamps.

Well, that's about it! I hope you like my Anchor's Aweigh creation.

Now it's your turn! Won't you join the Anchor's Aweigh Challenge? We'd love to see your creations!

Thank you for stopping by.
