Tilda Dancing Around - Joy Fold Card

Hello friends and welcome to my blog today! Are you all already prepared for the long holiday weekend (if you are here in the US)? Well not much planning and organizing for me to do...thank goodness, we are just relaxing, enjoying days on the beach with long walks and swimming in the pool...looking so forward to that :-) And then in about two weeks my best frioend is coming for a short visit...YAY! Haven't seen here for over a year now. Oh these are going to be some chatty days :-)

On my card today I used Ballerina Tilda from Magnolias Fairy Tale collection which I got from Summer's store Roses on Paper. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on iridescent cryogen white paper from Arjo Wiggins and colored with Copics. I decided to make a different card shape and tried a Joy Fold Card; they are fun to make!


My Design Papers are from Basic Grey's Whisteria collection and CS is Bazzill and DCWV. And again I managed to use only my scraps...hooray for that! I used lots of Stickles (Blueberry Ice, Diamond and Platinum) and also added twinkling H2O's to her hair to give it a golden shimmer. I used Viva Decor pens to make the pearls on her shoes and on the inside of the card. I really love these pearl pens they are magnificent!
They are available in lots of colors at SCACD!

The sentiment stamp on the inside is from SU! and the Happy Birthday sentiment on the outside of the card is from TGF. The frame on the inside is a Spellbinders Pendant. And I used Punch Buncha nd MS punches as well.

The cherry blossom flowers are from Whimsy Stamps and the rosebud is from Michaels' wedding section.

Here you can see the shimmer in her hair. I used twinling H2O's iridescent gold for that. You can also perfectly see all the sparkle on her dress, tiara and the pearls I made with the pearl pen on her shoes.

Here is a list of all the copics I used. I also did some airbrushing around the image to give a soft effect to the circles edge.

E000, E01, E11, E13, E25, E50
R000, R21
B21, B23, B26
V000, V12, V15, V17

This card is also my entry for Just Magnolia  #61 - Bev's Sketch and Magnolia Down Under Challenge 52 - which is 'Something Sweet'. And I think little Ballerina Tilda is just the sweetest ;-)
