Peachy Keen

Today while my tile guys were here finishing my master bathroom I decided to sneak away to my loft and create this card using Strawberry Tilda.

I colored this Tilda a few days ago but did nothing with her.  Ironically while I was looking for paper I found some from Carolee's Creations that was the perfect match.  Most people color their images to match their paper, I do the opposite!  So far I've been lucky!  I also received some awesome ribbon from my April mingle partner that was also a perfect match.  I added the peach ribbon around the card then just added the two smaller knots to each side of the peach knot.  It matches the striped paper perfectly!

The paper roses are from Crafta.com and the butterfly is from, I wanna say, K & Co. but I could be wrong and I don't feel like going back up into my loft to find out LOL Sorry!  I colored her with my copic markers and this time spent some time with distressing her like in Angie's video tutorials.  I think she turned out pretty good, what do you think?

The CS, ink and sentiment are all from Close To My Heart.  I didn't add any charms or safety pins this time.

I cut out a separate arm with watering can and popped it off the page as well as her hand around the stem of the flower.  I love the dimension it gives.  I don't know if you can tell in the picture or not.  I again, replaced the leaves with a flower.

I hope you like my card!  It's by far my 2nd favorite card!






Have a Simply Magnolia Day!
