Just Sitting Here!

That is what my sweet Tilda is doing. Before I even started coloring her, I chose the DP - it is a retired one from Stampin' Up! called Tea Party. I just love the soft colors in this beautiful paper and it made for a wonderful coloring session. I have been SO impressed with all the cards I see by the members of the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group and the cards in the Magnolia Ink that I have wondered how my simple cards even measure up. Well - I think I am on the right track.
My Card Base is Certainly celery, then pretty in pink. I matted the image with So Saffron. After I colored the image, you would think it would be quick to throw the rest of the card together, but it took well over an hour (maybe two) of contemplating before I finally settled on the design. I added the roses at the top - but really wish I had some more of the bigger ones - they are on order from Wild Orchid, so soon I will get to play. I added the rhinestones for added bling and think it gave just the right touch to finish off the card.
Now, on a side note - while I was coloring her - I remembered while I was in College I had a pair of overalls that I LOVED and they were light blue - it was a fun memory.

Thanks for stopping by - if you'd like to take a browse, feel free and I love comments - it makes me feel really special that you took the time.

Have a wonderful rest of your day - wherever you are in the world.

Hi Paula, what a sweet card. I love the soft pastel colors you used and the fact that the memories they evoked were so sweet also! Don't be so hard on yourself, your card measures us very well with any other designer!

Thank you.

Love that patchwork & your colouring. I know exactly what you mean about assembling all the pieces - only an hour or too - I can muddle around for half a day! Throwing a card together????? Not likely for you & me.
