Romantic Tilda

Hi, everyone! I thought I should make a card using a Magnolia stamp today. I have so many and I never have enough time to use them all, at least once or twice. I keep buying them and shortly forget about. Then I see a gorgeous card somewhere on blogland and remember I'm having this stamp too. That's what happened with this Romantic Tilda, which I bought last year and never used. And she looks amazing! I particularly love these more romantic, elegant, ladylike Tilda and want to have them all:)

Without further ado, here's my card:





I've used a bit of everything: ribbon, lace, paper-piecing, quite a few roses, sentiment mounted on bits of the fleur-de-lys nestie (which is another item I rarely use), stitching, spray pearls. Still, I've been trying not to exaggerate with embellies and keep Tilda as the central point:) 

Recipe:
Stamp: Magnolia -  Romantic Tilda
Papers: Blushbutter Victorian Dolls (digital) Papermania, Marianne Design, black vellum paper for the doily lace frame
Medium: Promarkers
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts roses, lace, ribbon from stash
Misc; oval puncher for the sentiment, oval circle nesties, MS doily lace punch, fleur-de-lys pendant, Robin Nest dew drops, ultrafine glitter, leaf punches
Sentiment: computer generated

I really had a hard time dealing with the challenge at Magnolia-licious because I just don't feel like putting red and rose together. There are lots of Valentine/love themed papers which mix them together and some of them are nice, but I'm not really fond of the combination. So I went more for a burgundy and pale pink for my card. Hope it still complies with the requirements and, which is more important, hope you like it:)

The challenges for this card are:

I love Promarkers- paper-piecing (the umbrella)
Alota - #53 Nestabilities (or other punched shapes)
Bunny Zoe's - #9 Spring...Flowers Everywhere


Hugs to you and have a great week-end!
Iulia

Hi Iulia, Wow! what a wonderful card. I love absolutely everything on this card and this must be a winner! I can see it must have taken a long while as it is full of such details. Love the effect in the parasol. Your colouring is superb as ever! (I agree with you about red and pink by the way! I can't put it together either:-)) Hugs, Teresa x

Sandy said...

Hey lulia!! Your card is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cards I have ever seen. Never thought of using black velum for the lace cut out - fantastic idea. Some people just have a knack for putting everything together so it dances! I adore how you popped up the sentiment and the ribbon with bow could not be any better - oh yeah, your coloring of Tilda is out of this world. One absolutely beautiful card!!
XO Sandy
