In the butterfly garden...




Hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday. I just woke up to post my card for today, but it's only 5:30am so I think I'll crawl back in bed for another hour or so. Yes yes it's Tilda with Hawaii flower again, I hope you're not sick of me using her... what am I saying how could that happen she is so beautiful! I wanted to create a garden feel with my card. The gorgeous papers are DCWV Garden Party. I cut the butterflies out of the DP and sponged the edges, layered them, added some antennas and pearls. Tilda is coloured with DI's. The vintage lace is from the thrift store. And I also added some soft organza polka dot ribbon.
I am entering another at MDUC - ribbons lace, The gorgeous sketch is from Magnolia-licious highlites - This beautiful Tilda is available at Magnolia-licious store. And I wanted to thank everyone at the yahoo group for voting for my Easter Mini Creation. I have barely been able to sleep with excitement!!!! I am also entering...
