Tilda goes to the Carnival!

***FINAL DAYS to join in on my BLOG CANDY...Check it out HERE! ***

Hello All!  There is a new challenge this week at the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog!  This weeks inspiration photo was picked by Ms. Pat Frank....

Isn't it just the cutest little photo?  Those are Pat's grandbabies! Love it!!  I have to tell you though, for how much I loved this photo, I was stumped on a card!! LOL  But, I pulled through and here is what I came up with:

I had fun with this one, once I got my images together and knew what I was doing!  I just love Balloon Tilda, it looks like she is out of stock in the regular size in the store, but she is in stock in the Mini verion and you can pick her up in Diana's store - Magnolia-licious. I paired her with a Digi carousel horse from Whimsy Stamps. I sooooooo wish I had the magnolia carousel horse but I didn't. But that doesn't mean that you can't. You get find the Magnolia horse in her store too! 

Those fabby papers are playground by Echo Park. I cut the card out using my Grand Nestie FINALLY! LOL  I have had it since Christmas and just finally broke it in. Sad, I know! I added some liquid glass to the ballon for some shine and some glitter on the horse. The pendants were cut from one of the playground papers. I also pleated the the purple paper that is behind the image and distressed it.  I did some sewing on the red ribbon and gathered it up. I also sewed all the papers. Then I pop dotted the image on top of all that.  Tilda is also cut out and pop dotted in front of the horse. I liked the tiny bit of shadow it created to add depth.

Now it's your turn. Come on over the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog and do check out all the other DT creations. They are all beautiful as always and very much inspiring. We hope that you will join us in the challenge. The prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the Magnolia-licious Store!! How cool is that!  You can never have too many Tildas, that's what I say. My husband does NOT like that saying though...so keep it to yourself and/or other Tilda addicts. Only they can understand!!!

Not much else for me to say, nothing going on in my life today! ;-)  Now go craft!

Hi Tracy,
Great card!
Beautifully coloured - of course :o)
Love Balloon Tilda at the Carnival-she looks like she is having a fantastic time and is going on the Carousel in a minute or two :o)
You did a lot of work by gathering your paper and sewing your ribbon and card. Sure wish I had that large die - love the type of card it makes.
Hugs, Candy
