Tilda with Ballet Shoes






I am back from Chicago and ready to craft the week away. I had a great morning with my husband and a delicious breakfast. It's a rainy Saturday, however we need the rain.  Oh very exciting news, I should have some better quality photos next week. For my birthday my husband got me a tripod and a photo box. I am sooooo excited!!!!

The image Tilda with Ballet Shoes is just too cute. I love her dress. Adding the pearls to the bottom was quite a challenge especially when you want the to flow a certain way. The technique for the Tilda's Town Challenge is Dies.

Here is a close-up view:


Here is what I used to create my easel card:
Magnolia Stamp - Tilda with Ballet Shoes
Marianne Die - Flower & Leaf
Memory Box Die - Ivy

  3. Well Happy Birthday Karen. Imagine being able to dash over to Chicago. There really aren't many places up here in the mountains to dash too! Your card looks fancy and the die behind Tilda is gorgeous. Such a pretty card - I am really hoping I can start creating next week. Getting better and better every day!!

  21. Beautiful card Karen! I love the colors you've used on Tilda and you've colored her up to perfection! I'm really diggin the die you've used behind her. I'd love to hear how your photo box works out as I'm looking for a better way to take photos. I have to rely on the light coming through the window... Many happy returns of the day!
