Tilda Sending Girlfriend A Letter

Smiles everyone~~ My girlfriend and co-worker is having a birthday on Monday, so I made her a card. I used the sketch from MMSC#20 and the Just Magnolia week 24 color combo challenge to use Grey and Pink. I incorporated a bunch of punches to enter the Pile It On #16 challenge. The Stamp Something challenge if to use a favorite layout or sketch. I Amazed Myself!!!! LOL--don't you love when that happens :-)



My focus image is Little Miss Tilda waiting to deliver her card :-) All layers are matted with a very soft grey cardstock paper. The striped dp is from "Me&My Big Ideas" collection, the diamond dp is from K&Co. and the bench is stamped on a distressed sheet from BG Bittersweet collection. I used foam tape to pop up Miss Tilda, the pillow on the bench and each cuttlebugged or border punched layer. The "Girlfriends" sentiment is a quote sticker from Cloud9 Designs. She is sooo cute that I can't wait to share her with Patti!!!


Another view so you can see the dimension:


The finished inside is using the same DP and ribbon~~ adding sentiments of "Birthday Wishes and Smiles" seeing we work in a dental office :D Then of course, I couldn't forget the BUTTERFLIES!!!!!!
