I decided to use this cute Magnolia image Tilda with Birdcage from the Magnolia Animal and Pet Collection, available here. I colored Tilda using my Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads and re-inkers. I found matching DP in the Basic Grey paper pad Porcelaine. And as the challenge theme is hearts....I finally had the chance to use my new Spellbinders Pendant and Borderabilities Renaissance Hearts, YAY! Also added more hearts: K&Company heart pillow stickers, heart charm, heart lace and heart button. The distressing was done using Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy and a sponge (Ranger cut-n-dry foam) as well as the Tim Holtz paper distresser.
Distressing is also this weeks theme over at Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog.
So I'm entering my card for their challenge #18. The skletch I used is from this weeks challenge at Friday Sketchers. What a fun sketch! Will enter my card there later today.
I also decorated the inside of my card and made a matching envelope. I lined the envelope with matching DP and stamped the Tilda image on the front and the same saying I have stamped on the inside of my card I stamped on the envelopes flap.
Hope you like it! And sorry I think I got a little crazy with my photos... there are a lot ;-)
