Sweet (and bright) Tilda

I hope that everyone is having a fantastic New Year's Day and that your New Year's Eve was both safe and exciting!

I'd like to kick off 2011 with a card using Sweet Tilda from the Magnolia Stamps Raising The Ceiling Collection.  I think she's one of the cutest Tildas out there!  The image was colored with Distress Reinkers using the Small Koi Water Brush.  The edges were inked using the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and a yellow and blue stamp pad. I added some highlights using the Inkssentials Opaque White Pen from Ranger.

I used papers from the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker 8x8 Paper Pad.  There are a lot of bright papers in this pad which I thought goes perfectly with Sweet Tilda.  I've paper pieced her dress and her socks to match.

I kept the card simple with some net ribbon, striped twill ribbon, and baker's twine.  I added some blingy rhinestones to the card to give a little more girly-ness :)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a nice, relaxing weekend!
