Tilda Sitting Pretty


I made this set for a few different challenges. At Magolicalicious Highlights (which I won last month- WOO HOO!! ), they are wanting to see a fall creation while incorporating a brown paper bag!  How fun is that! As you can see I took pictures of the poor paper bag, before and after! What a mess, that poor little bag! haha! Card layout is from Creative Inspirations sketch.

For my card, I colored Tilda up & realized she needs to be sitting on something, so instead of cutting her out, I just drew a tree branch under her & added some leaves that I punched out of the brown paper bag with my MS leaf punch. I then dapped the leaves in orange, yellow, brown & green ink pads before adhering them.

I also used the brown paper bag as the backing beneath the lace ribbons as well as for the homemade flowers on both the card & tote bag in the top right corners. I used my scallop punch to punch out 3 scallops & I squished them up after spritzing them with water. I tried to place them to it looked pretty, then added a button center & stickles.  

The buttons on the card & the bow in Tilda's hair allows me to enter my card in the Sir Stampalot Challenge of Autumn breezes with buttons & a bow!!

The tote bag was a spur of the moment decision whilst searching thru the Splitcoaststamper resources list. This tutorial was on top & I could NOT stop myself from downloading the template they have available. Click HERE to get to the direct link.

I figured the little tote would be the perfect match for my Tilda card. I stamped on the yellow cardstock with a CTMH stamp set called Key To My Heart.
I added a little tag which is a Sentimental Sunday Freebie this week & cut out the other Tilda image and placed her on the tag. With this I can enter my card into the Magnolia Down Under Challenge of Tag it!

I am headed over to post this at the Steel Magnolia's blog so feel free to pop over there as well to see some more GREAT creations by the other Steel Magnolia Girls!!
