Happy Birthday Pauline...




OMG I'm so excited did you see the fabulous dt inspiration at the new TOMIC blog.
And for their first challenge they are celebrating Pauline's birthday and would like to see a birthday card. So I thought what better time than this to use my new stone pathway stamp which I have to tell you by the time I finally found it and had it shipped to Canada it was almost $20 CDN. so I need to use it hahahha. Also the one thing I hate most about card making is cutting images out. I toughed through it though since I find it often looks better. But it is the main reason I never mask images because I hate the fact of cutting the masked image for nothing hahahaha.... but I did it, and I survived. Yep used my fave Tilda again. Everything is coloured with distress ink re-inkers. The girls were over a while ago and Roberta left her button jar behind... well it didn't take me long to dig into it and grab that beautiful wood button....sorry Bert, possession is 9/10 of the law...hahahaha. The flowers I dyed with Aged Mahogany. Papers are K & Co. The butterfly is prima. The corner flourish is tattered angels. The beautiful shape is Spellbinders Grand Labels - love it! I am entering these challenges as well....

Oh, I fell in love with the card the moment I saw it! I don't know what it is about this card but it's very captivating to me. Perhaps the beautiful shade of orange dp along with some pink accents and the soft coloring of Tilda. Anyway, it's stunning!
