May Card Challenge - Rosegarden Tilda

Hi everyone,

As it is Autumn here in Melbourne, Australia and my roses are showing a lovely autumn flush, I thought  "Rosegarden Tilda" needed to have an Autumn feel to her..


I have used Bazzill card, Copic markers, the Kaiser roses were coloured with Copics too, paper doilies, new Spellbinders dies (Decorative Labels Eight, Labels Twenty-Nine) La La Land Fence, Doohickeys Dragon Flies and a bronze glass button from my button box.

I think she looks quite gorgeous so I am entering her into the May Card Challenge - Lili of the Valley & The Ribbon Girls.

Bye for now,




 Hi everyone,

Well, my learning curve is getting bigger as I now have a watermark for my photos - phew!
It took me a little while but I've got there, I am very pleased with myself and many thanks to Cathy Lee
for her detailed instructions..




The inspiration for this card that came from the Magnolia stamp "Tilda with Love" it just cried out for
pink, lilac and green and the card grew from there.

I've used Copic markers, Spellbinders dies, Star Dust Stickles, Heart organza ribbon, Doohicky's Dragon Fly dies and lots of love..
